Columbia, IL police search for fugitive

Tuesday, 25 February 2014 02:21 Published in Local News
   Police in Columbia, Illinois are looking for a fugitive who lied to them about turning himself in.  
   Thirty-six-year-old Jeremy Davis and two accomplices allegedly stole construction equipment in Missouri and then tried to sell it in the metro-east.  Davis was identified through a cell phone picture taken by construction workers who refused to buy the stolen equipment.  
   Police Chief Joe Edwards says his department contacted Davis by phone and he agreed to turn himself in, but hasn't.  
   Chief Edwards says they're concerned for public safety because Davis has already driven recklessly to avoid arrest and has lied to police.  "That leads us to believe that that person is going to do anything they can to elude law enforcement," he said.
   Davis is charged with two felony counts: aggravated possession of a stolen vehicle and driving on a revoked license for the third time. His bond is set at $50,000.
   Davis is a former resident of Waterloo, IL.  Police believe he now lives in Missouri, possibly in St. Louis County.
   Anyone with information about Jeremy Davis' whereabouts is asked to call the Columbia Police Department at (618) 281-5151.
 
 
 

Boeing Machinist approve contract extension

Monday, 24 February 2014 04:53 Published in Local News
   Boeing officials expect their new contract with machinists to help the aerospace company better compete for new business.  Members of Machinists District 837 approved a 7 1/2 year contract extension on Sunday.
   The new contract was approved by Boeing machinists Sunday.  It will buy out many veteran workers and cut pay for new hires brought in to replace them. Raises and benefits would also be locked in through mid 2022.
   Boeing officials have said the cut in expenses will allow assembly lines in St. Louis to remain more competitive beyond 2016, when the current F-18 Super Hornet order is due to be completed.  
   But some union members claim hundreds of older workers are being left out of the buyout, while having their pensions cut.  Paul Miller tells Fox 2 News that he's getting nothing from the new contract. "They got us broken up into three groups now," he said.  "And they're taking care of the new hires.  And they're taking care of the retirees.  But us group, the people that are here in middle, they're not taking care of us."
    Still, members of Machinists District 837 approved the contract extension with a nearly 3-1 margin. 
 
   The seat of justice in downtown St. Louis is also a cutting edge security system testing ground.  
   A pilot program approved by St. Louis judges in December is using facial recognition technology to spot individuals who are known threats before they can get past the front doors.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the courthouse is one of three downtown locations testing the new screening system developed by Blue Line Security Solutions, a group of current and former St. Louis police officers.  
   Other facial recognition systems snap pictures of everyone in camera range and try to ID them. The Blue Line system is loaded with images of specific people who've already been deemed a threat and then scans visitors looking for a match.  
   The St. Louis Circuit Court is testing the program for free.  The cost of using the system after the testing period is over has yet to be determined.
