   Authorities say dozens of people face drug or weapons charges as part of a crackdown in parts of the metro-east that the St. Clair County prosecutor says are "in a state of lawlessness."  

   State's Attorney Brendan Kelly says most of the more than 50 people charged are from East St. Louis, Washington Park, Alorton and Cahokia.  The three-month investigation, dubbed "Operation Wild, Wild East" was funded by a federal grant overseen by Illinois State Police.  

   Kelly says the communities where the alleged offenses took place don't have enough policing, and that laws simply aren't being enforced.

   Smoke from a blaze at a recycling plant could cause problems for some drivers in the Earth City area Friday morning.  Smoke was reported to be hanging over Highway 370 near Missouri Bottom Road just before sunrise.  

   The fire began in large mulch piles along Missouri Bottom Road near Earth City Expressway around midnight.  As of 5 a.m., fire crews were still trying to put it out.  

   Hazelwood police had blocked several local roads around that fire scene.

Three dead after Wildwood crash

Friday, 16 August 2013 04:32 Published in Local News

   Three people are dead and a fourth is injured after a convertible crashed into the deck of a Wildwood home last night.  The crash happened just before 10:00 p.m. on Homestead Manor Drive near Babler State Park.  

   Monarch Fire Protection District spokesman Roger Herin told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that all of the victims were in their late teens or early twenties.  Two were pronounced dead at the scene.  A third died after being airlifted to a hospital.  The fourth victim suffered minor injuries.  

   Two people who'd been sitting on the deck when it was hit were not hurt.  

   Herin says the cause of the crash isn't known, but speed may have been a factor.
