A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
An Estill county businessman is in jail after a federal raid. Larry Riddell is accused of selling stolen goods.
The FBI, ATF, and state police took a truck load of evidence from his construction business, convenience store, and home. The raid was part of a three month investigation.
Investigators say Riddell received, possessed, concealed, stored and sold more than five thousand dollars worth of stolen merchandise, including health and beauty aids, over the counter medicine, and air conditioning units.
Investigators say those items were sold at the convenient store at the gas station Riddell owned.
Police say the stolen goods came from multiple counties, but they are not sure how widespread it was.
Riddell's wife and daughter were also arrested.
