BANK ROBBERY SUSPECTS' RUN ENDS IN CRASH
Two men were arrested Friday in connection with the robbery of a BB&T bank at 11234 Spring Hill Drive. According to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office, a witness said a man ran out of the bank at 2:40 p.m. and got into the passenger's side of a green four-door car with tinted windows. The witness called 911 and began following the vehicle. As deputies flooded the area of West Linden Drive and Spring Hill Drive, the vehicle ran a stop sign and crashed into another vehicle. One person in the other vehicle was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries. Both suspects ran from the crash scene and were apprehended at 2:55 p.m. Arrested were Nolan Wyles, 20, of Cocoa; and Zachary John Rianhard, 39, of Merritt Island.
Mosquito Control: West Nile present
Hernando County Mosquito Control officials said Friday that a sentinel chicken in northwest Hernando County has tested positive for the West Nile virus, which means there are mosquitoes in the area that are carrying the virus. The virus is not harmful to chickens, can be deadly to humans and horses. West Nile virus is a rare disease that can cause inflammation of the brain. No human cases have been reported in Hernando County, but anyone in the area where the virus is circulating can get infected. The sentinel chicken is in the Royal Highlands area on Nuthatch Road, a mile south of the Hernando-Citrus county line.
