St. Louis – Fourteen members of a St. Louis-based convenience store organization face federal indictments on charges of receiving stolen property, real-estate fraud and illegally transferring money abroad.
All are of Palestinian origin, though some are American citizens. They were the target of an investigation by the Joint Terrorism Task Force.
But U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway said the indictment does not allege terrorist activities, only that multiple crimes were committed.
Clayton, Mo. – The St. Louis County Council declined to act on legislation Tuesday that would enforce the county's controversial new trash district plan.
County Executive Charlie Dooley requested the proposal a week ago after the county's lawyer admitted in court there was nothing in the new trash law that prevented haulers from trying to get their old customers back.
Bryan Barcom is a co-owner of American Eagle Waste, one of the companies that lost a bid to provide service in the new districts.
