The FBI has released surveillance images of a man who robbed a bank Thursday afternoon in The Hill neighborhood.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A state senator from eastern Missouri is forgoing a re-election bid, potentially setting off a scramble among Republicans vying to replace him in the reliably GOP district.
   Republican Sen. Brian Nieves (nee-EH'-vehz), of Washington, withdrew Thursday after initially filing for re-election.
   One candidate, House Republican Dave Schatz, of Sullivan, had already filed to challenge Nieves. But with Nieves' exit, Republican House Speaker Tim Jones, of Eureka, is now also considering a run.
   Jones says he will take time next week to weigh his options. Nieves did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
   A potential primary could be an expensive contest. Schatz loaned his campaign $350,000, and Jones reports having $900,000 in his campaign account.
   The Senate district includes Franklin County and parts of western St. Louis County.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's official consumer advocate wants regulators to publicly release information that could show whether Ameren Missouri has earned more than it's entitled to from its electricity rates.
   The request by Public Counsel Lewis Mills to the Missouri Public Service Commission deals with a report filed last November by the St. Louis-based utility company that has been kept confidential.
   In February, Noranda Aluminum and other Ameren customers filed a complaint alleging the utility was earning more than allowed by the regulatory commission. That complaint cited the confidential November report and asked the PSC to lower Ameren's allowable earnings - thus potentially cutting rates for consumers.
   Mills said in his recent filing that the public needs access to the confidential information to understand the basis for the allegation that Ameren is overearning.

   St. Patrick's Day weekend is upon us and that means police departments across the metro area are on the lookout for drivers who've had too much to drink.  
   MoDOT reports that more than 200 Missouri law enforcement agencies will take part in a special impaired driving crackdown that puts additional officers on the road Friday through Monday.  
   Illinois transportation officials are giving local communities a little help with enforcement.  Edwardsville Police Deputy Jeffery Mills tells Fox 2 news the city has a special grant for enforcement over the St. Patrick's Day weekend.  "The IDOT grant allows us to bring officers in on overtime and their specific role is to enforce DUIs within the City of Edwardsville," he said.  Deputy Mills says the point behind the IDOT program is to keep the roads safe for other drivers.  
   Edwardsville police began conducting DUI checkpoints Thursday.  They'll continue through Monday night.
   Police in Alton, IL have announced a similar DUI enforcement effort.

   Sentencing for Cornell McKay will go on as scheduled, despite his attorney's pleas for a review of the jury's verdict against him.  McKay will be sentenced March 20th for armed robbery.  

   His attorneys had asked St. Louis Circuit Judge Robin Vannoy to give them 60 days to investigate whether evidence that suggests Megan Boken's killer may have committed the crime was improperly kept out of McKay’s trial.  Boken was killed by Keith Esters during a similar robbery a few days later in the same neighborhood.  

   The judge declined the request.

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Vannoy also declined a prosecution request to bar McKay's often vocal supporters from the courtroom during sentencing.

   McKay's attorneys say they plan to take the case to the state appellate court.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri schools would be barred from electronically tracking students if legislation passed by the state Senate ultimately becomes law.
 
The legislation approved Thursday would prohibit public school districts from using "radio frequency identification technology" to track to location of students or transmit information about them.
 
The technology already is used to identify livestock and pets, track inventory for businesses and allow cars to pass by electronic toll readers without stopping to pay.
 
Republican Sen. Ed Emery, of Lamar, is sponsoring the bill banning the devices to track students. Emery said he's not aware of any Missouri schools that have sought to use the technology.
 
The Senate voted 27-5 for the bill, which now goes to the House.

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - A pair of St. Charles County cities are warning residents about two separate abduction attempts.

The suspect is described as a white man around 20 years old. He was wearing a red baseball cap and blue shirt.

 

O'Fallon, Missouri police heard the report and they had a similar incident Tuesday evening. The child in that case gave a similar description of a suspect. The two kids gave different descriptions of the car the suspect drove off in.

 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Lake St. Louis or O’Fallon Police departments.
