Sheriff- Body of missing N.D. student found
CROOKSTON, Minn. -- The body of University of North Dakota student Dru Sjodin was found Saturday, revealed by the spring thaw in an area volunteers had searched several times during the five months she had been missing, searchers said Saturday. Sheriff Mark LeTexier sobbed as he told volunteers, "Dru is home." An official identification and autopsy were scheduled, he said. Scores of volunteers had joined the search on Saturday for the 22-year-old University of North Dakota student, who had last been seen Nov. 22 at a Grand Forks, N.D., mall. While a handful of Sjodin's relatives continued searching through the winter, official searches had been halted in December because of severe weather and resumed this month.
Authorities seek weapons at warehouse near airport
SAN LEANDRO, Calif. -- Dozens of federal, state and local law enforcement agents searched a warehouse near Oakland International Airport Saturday for weapons including rocket launchers, officials said. Federal officials would not reveal the exact nature of the investigation, but they said the search was not related to terrorism. About 200 agents from a dozen different agencies took part in the raid, which began around 6 a.m. Friday and continued Saturday. On Friday, authorities barred aircraft from flying over the site for three and a half hours while they took over the 12-acre, five-building warehouse complex in San Leandro.
Students suspended for using pennies to buy IDs
ROCKFORD, Ill. -- School authorities say as many as 10 senior girls from Auburn High School were suspended for one day for paying for their student identification cards in pennies -- 100 pennies apiece. The girls said they intentionally left their school IDs at home. When confronted by a hall monitor, they said they'd buy temporary IDs for $1 apiece. Then, each pulled out 100 pennies to pay. The hall monitors were not amused, and the girls each received a one-day in-school suspension this month.
