Boone County deputy recovers missing loot

BURLINGTON - A Boone County Sheriff's deputy recovered more than $13,000 in stolen items after stopping a car matching a description of one used in a theft in Florence on Monday.

The stolen items were taken from businesses along Interstate 75 from Detroit to Florence, said Tom Scheben, spokesman for the sheriff's department.

Robert Hopp and Scott Rider, both of Tennessee, were charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and receiving stolen property. Hopp was also charged with shoplifting.

Florence police were called to Kmart on Burlington Pike for a shoplifting case. The suspects had fled, but store personnel described their vehicle.

After hearing the description on his radio, Sheriff's Deputy Greg Tanner spotted the car nearby and stopped it.

Passengers evacuated after truck hits plane

HEBRON - Passengers on a commuter flight bound for Chicago had to be evacuated to the tarmac after a luggage trailer ran into the plane as it taxied out to a runway at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport early Monday.

No one was seriously injured and passengers were routed to other flights.

Police said it was raining at the time of the wreck and visibility on the ground was poor. The collision happened just after 7 a.m. on the ramp road between airport terminals No. 1 and 2. American Eagle Flight 4376 was taxiing to take off for Chicago's O'Hare International Airport when the trailer ran into the side of the aircraft.
