New details emerge in Pearlington dog raid

It's WLOX News Director Brad Kessie.  The details about the dog raid on a Pearlington home are quite disturbing.  Hancock County investigators got a tip that a large number of dogs lived in poor condition at a Kelly Road home.  What they found when they used a warrant to raid the home were nearly 40 dogs, and almost as many dead animals.  You'll find the latest on this story, including pictures from the Pearlington home, on WLOX.com.

That surveillance video from the Kiddie City Child Care Center in central Mississippi is on WLOX.com.  And boy, does it have people talking.  WLOX just got an email from somebody who was on our Facebook wall.  "I was really disturbed by that video," she said.  To see the video of what appears to be a nine-year-old assaulting younger children at the Vicksburg daycare facility, just click on this link.  We have the latest developments on the daycare center investigation on WLOX News at 6:30, exclusively on our CBS channel.

We got our first look at Mississippi Power's newest investment in Mississippi.  Doug Walker was given a tour of the power company's Kemper County lignite plant.  As Doug was told, it's a power plant that will move Mississippi into the next century.  You'll see just how much work has been done on the plant when you watch WLOX News at 6:00 on our ABC channel.

And South Mississippi is a bit cleaner tonight.  Volunteers went around Biloxi and removed graffiti off buildings.  Steve Phillips tells us why these volunteers decided to scrub away the graffiti on WLOX News at 6:00.

Have a good night.
