Neighborhood Watch: Henderson’s Habitat for Humanity hit again, Mt. Vernon installs Baby Box

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Habitat for Humanity in Henderson has been struck again.

An employee arrived Monday morning to take Habitat’s brand new truck to the sign company to have it wrapped.

When the employee arrived they found parts of the truck cut off, including the exhaust system, the brake line, and other parts spread out all over the yard.

This is the third theft since November when someone stole tools off a Habitat build. Then in April, someone cut a hole through the chain link fence, chopped the lock off a trailer, and stole the equipment inside.

We’ll have more on this on 14 News at 10.

If you know anything about this all Habitat at 270-826-0015 or the police at 270-831-1295.

The city of Mount Vernon has installed the first Safe Haven Baby Box in Posey County.

The box will be unveiled and blessed tomorrow at 311 College Avenue on the north side of the fire station.

Indiana’s Safe Haven Law allows people to anonymously surrender their healthy newborn baby without fear of criminal prosecution.

The ceremony is at 2:00, Tuesday afternoon.

Senator Jim Tomes is among the dignitaries who will participate.

And here’s a reminder that most law enforcement agencies in the tri-state will be participating in the Click it or Ticket campaign.

It will run from May 20 to June 2.

The National Transportation Safety Administration says with an increased number of cars on highways during the Memorial Day Holiday, it’s imperative for drivers to wear their seat belt, stay alert, and refrain from aggressive driving.
