MOBILE, Alabama -- Authorities are looking for two men who escaped from a Mobile detention facility early Monday.

Inmates Cody Wood and Carlton Beech were seen fleeing the prison shortly after midnight eventually getting in a white sport-utility vehicle parked on Interstate 65 south.

Wood is a white man, standing 5 feet, 8 inches tall, weighing about 145 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing a white Department of Corrections uniform. He was serving a 10-year sentence for a robbery and burglary conviction.

MONTGOMERY, Ala.— A judge on Sunday blocked efforts by casino owner Milton McGregor to subpoena former Gov. Bob Riley to testify in the government corruption against him and eight others.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Terry Moorer ruled McGregor's lawyers failed to show the relevancy of Riley's testimony. The judge also blocked McGregor's efforts to subpoena three high-ranking state police officials from Riley's administration.

The ex-governor's attorney, Matt Lemke, said the ruling cleared the way for Riley to leave, as planned, on Monday for a motorcycle trip from Alabama to Alaska.

Lembke argued in a court hearing Saturday that there was no reason to subpoena Riley. He said the judge's order Sunday night confirmed that.

Fire risk high around the area

Drought conditions in the Wiregrass are nearing historic levels, and the threat of wildfires is growing as the lack of rain continues.

The outdoor burning ban issued by Gov. Robert Bentley for all 67 counties in Alabama on Tuesday is part of an emergency drought condition declaration.

The Dothan Fire Department said anyone setting a fire for any purpose will be subject to prosecution. The ban includes campfires, trash fires and those intended for land clearing, and the department will issue no burn permits until conditions improve. The department wants any hazardous situations or conditions to be reported.

The layer of smoke in the area this week was from wildfires burning in New Mexico, the department said.

Alabama is running fairly close to the drought conditions in 2007, said Mike Kysera spokesperson for theAlabama Forestry Commission.

The Walton County Sheriff's Office (WCSO) yesterday arrested Robert Clay Posey, 51, of DeFuniak Springs, Fla, on marijuana drug charges.

The WCSO executed a search warrant May 27 at Posey's residence at 183 Vanderheide Road and located approximately 27 marijuana plants and drug paraphernalia used to cultivate the illegal substance.


Posey was charged with one count of producing marijuana, a third-degree felony; and one count of possession of narcotic equipment, a first-degree misdemeanor.


He turned himself in to the Walton County Jail.

The Walton County Sheriff's Office (WCSO) today announces the arrest of John Michael Mullins, 38, and Moranda Denise Reynolds, 21, both of DeFuniak Springs, Fla, on methamphetamine drug charges.

The WCSO investigation began May 26 after deputies received information regarding the possible presence of a methamphetamine lab at 252 Briar Road.  Reynolds fled the residence when deputies arrived. Mullins was arrested on-scene.
WCSO deputies subsequently searched the residence and discovered hazardous chemicals used to produce methamphetamine.
Mullins and Reynolds were charged with one count each of manufacturing drugs in a home with a child present, a first-degree felony; producing methamphetamine, a second-degree felony; possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, a third-degree felony; and possession of narcotics equipment, a first-degree misdemeanor.
Reynolds was arrested June 7.
Both suspects were booked into the Walton County Jail.
