THE ROEBLING BRIDGE REOPEN AFTER ITS FOURTH CLOSURE IN A WEEK OVERNIGHT… WE’RE LEADING THE WAY WITH WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THIS LATEST NEWS FIVE TODAY, THE ROEBLING BRIDGE REOPENED AFTER ITS FOURTH CLOSURE IN A WEEK HAPPENED OVERNIGHT. WE ARE LEADING THE WAY WITH WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THIS LATEST THREAT TO THE BRIDGE AND THE TROUBLING TREND. AND MORE HATEFUL FLIERS BEING SPREAD AROUND GREATER CINCINNATI COMMUNITIES. THE UPTICK A LOCAL ORGANIZATION IS SEEING AND HOW TO REPORT INCIDENTS THAT YOU SEE. WE’LL PUT THOSE PUMPKIN THOUGHTS ON PAUSE AS WARMER WEATHER HEADS BACK IN HOW HOT IT WILL FEEL FOR THE BIG GAMES IN TOWN THIS WEEKEND. AND IF WEATHER COULD IMPACT THE BENGALS ON MONDAY NIGHT. THIS IS WLWT NEWS 5 TODAY LEADING THE WAY. WE ARE LEADING THE WAY WITH THAT BREAKING NEWS. ANOTHER CLOSURE OF THE ROEBLING BRIDGE OVERNIGHT. BUT FIRST, WE DO HAVE TO TRACK SOME WARM TEMPERATURES IN OUR WEATHER. THANKS FOR BEING WITH US. I’M STEPHEN OLBERDING. AND I’M KELLY RIPPIN. SO SUMMER IS HANGING ON THIS WEEK, EVEN THOUGH WE ARE OFFICIALLY SAYING GOODBYE. METEOROLOGIST RANDI RICO TIMING OUT THE CLIMB AS WE HEAD TOWARD THE WEEKEND. RANDI. I MEAN, IT’S ONLY TUESDAY. I’M MORE THAN HAPPY TO LOOK FOR THE WEEKEND THOUGH. I THINK WE ALL ARE JUST BECAUSE OF ALL THE EXCITEMENT IN THE SPORTING WORLD. AND WE’VE GOT BIG FESTIVALS COMING TO TOWN, SO THERE’S PLENTY TO LOOK FORWARD TO. AND IF YOU LOVE WARMER WEATHER, YOU HAVE THAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO AS WELL. IT’S GOING TO BE WARM AND DRY ALL THE WAY UP UNTIL WE PACK PACKER AGAIN ON MONDAY NIGHT. NOW THIS MORNING, PLAN ON 40S. CHECK OUT THESE TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE REGION. IN FACT, IT’S HARD TO FIND A TOWN STILL IN THE 50S, 53 FOR OXFORD, BUT 49 IN CINCINNATI, 49 IN SPRINGBORO, 44, OVER IN VERSAILLES, INDIANA, 48 RIGHT NOW IN ALEXANDRIA TO SO A CRISP START AGAIN THIS MORNING AND TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON THAT SHOULD JUMP ABOUT 30 DEGREES AND HEAD INTO THE UPPER 70S MID UPPER 70S FOR MOST OF US. BUT YET ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL FALL DAY STARTING TOMORROW, GETTING MORE OF THOSE SUMMERTIME VIBES BACK IN THE FORECAST. BUT THIS MORNING WE’LL STAY IN THE 40S UP UNTIL ABOUT THE 9:00 HOUR. SO MAKE SURE EVERYBODY HAS A COAT OR A SWEATSHIRT AS THEY HEAD OUT THE DOOR BY LUNCHTIME. WE’RE ALMOST BACK TO 70, BUT IT’S 80. STARTING TOMORROW, WE’LL TALK ABOUT THE STREAK OF WARM WEATHER AND WHEN SOME RAIN SHOWERS WILL SNAP. THAT STREAK FOR US COMING UP. KELLY RANDI, THANK YOU SO MUCH. WE ARE LEADING THE WAY WITH BREAKING NEWS THIS MORNING. POLICE RUSHED TO THE ROEBLING SUSPENSION BRIDGE YET AGAIN. THIS LATEST INCIDENT HAPPENING JUST AFTER MIDNIGHT. SO WE’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE ONE AROUND LUNCHTIME YESTERDAY. RIGHT. SO THIS IS THE NEXT ONE. AND IT PROBABLY IS GOING TO BE A REPEAT FOR THIS. IT MARKS THE FOURTH MAJOR POLICE RESPONSE, CLOSING THE BRIDGE IN LESS THAN A WEEK. AND WLWT HAS BEEN LEADING THE WAY ON THIS STORY SINCE THE FIRST THREAT LAST WEDNESDAY AND THE MULTIPLE THREATS SINCE THEN. OUR MEREDITH STUTZ WAS LIVE THERE THAT MORNING. WE HAVE HER ON THIS STORY AGAIN THIS MORNING AS POLICE INVESTIGATE THIS TROUBLING TREND. MEREDITH, WHAT DO WE KNOW SO FAR? WELL, STEVEN, FOR THIS LATEST INCIDENT, WE DO KNOW THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT RESPONDED AROUND MIDNIGHT, SHUTTING DOWN THE ROEBLING BRIDGE TO ALL SORTS OF TRAFFIC IN BOTH DIRECTIONS. BUT I CAN TELL YOU RIGHT NOW IT’S BACK OPEN. I HEAR THAT FAMILIAR HUM OF OF CARS TRAVELING ACROSS THE BRIDGE. WE CROSSED IT OURSELVES IN ORDER TO GET HERE THIS MORNING AS HE TALKED ABOUT. THIS IS THE FOURTH INCIDENT IN ABOUT A WEEK, LESS THAN THAT WHEN IT COMES TO THE ROEBLING BRIDGE. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THIS FOR THAT RECAP. SO WE WANT TO TAKE IT BACK TO LAST WEDNESDAY. I WAS HERE AS LAW ENFORCEMENT SHUT DOWN THE BRIDGE FOR THE FIRST TIME AFTER A HOAX CALL LED TO A BOMB THREAT INVESTIGATION. THAT CALL CAME IN AROUND 545 THAT MORNING AND POLICE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE RIVER FEDERAL AGENTS AND THE COAST GUARD ALL WORK TO CLEAR THE AREA. THEN THINGS STAYED QUIET UNTIL SUNDAY MORNING WHEN ANOTHER CALL LED TO AN INVESTIGATION INTO A POSSIBLE PIPE BOMB. THE BRIDGE WAS CLOSED FOR HOURS AS MANY BENGALS FANS WERE LOOKING TO CROSS THE BRIDGE TO GET TO PAYCOR STADIUM. THEN, JUST A LITTLE MORE THAN 24 HOURS LATER, ANOTHER POLICE RESPONSE. AS KELLY AND STEPHEN WERE MENTIONING, THE BRIDGE WAS CLOSED AROUND 330 YESTERDAY AFTER POLICE SAY THAT THEY RECEIVED A REPORT OF A SUSPICIOUS PACKAGE. MAGE CREWS CHECKED THE BAG IN QUESTION AND DETERMINED THAT THERE WAS NO THREAT AND JUST ABOUT EIGHT HOURS LATER, AROUND MIDNIGHT, AGAIN, THAT’S WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW. THIS WAS THE SCENE AS POLICE RESPONDED FOR THE FOURTH TIME. LAW ENFORCEMENT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE RIVER AGAIN WORK TO CLEAR THE SCENE, WALKING THE BRIDGE TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE WAS NO THREAT. SO FAR, POLICE HAVE NOT YET SAID WHAT PROMPTED THIS THREAT INVESTIGATION. BUT TELL US THAT THERE IS NO CREDIBLE THREAT TO BE FOUND RIGHT NOW. IT’S NOT YET CLEAR IF ALL OR SOME OF THESE INCIDENTS ARE CONNECTED, BUT LAW ENFORCEMENT TELLS US THAT THEY DO TAKE EACH ONE OF THESE INCIDENTS SERIOUSLY, STILL WORKING TO DETERMINE WHO IS RESPONSIBLE. ALL WE DO KNOW, KELLY AND STEVEN, THAT THE FBI HAS BEEN GIVEN THE CHARGE TO LEAD THE FIRST TWO INVESTIGATIONS. WE’RE WAITING TO CONFIRM WHO WILL BE LEADING THESE LATEST TO INVESTIGATIONS. WE’LL KEEP YOU UPDATED AS WE CONFIRM MORE INFORMATION REPORTING LIVE IN COVINGTON, MEREDITH STUTZ, WLWT. NEWS 5. MEREDITH. THANKS SO MUCH. SO ANOTHER HEADACHE FOR POLICE THAT ARE DEALING WITH THIS. WE’LL STAY ON TOP OF THIS STORY AS IT KEEPS ON GOING, DEVELOPING ON WLWT MORE HATEFUL MESSAGES SPREAD ACROSS GREATER CINCINNATI NEIGHBORHOODS. IT’S A TREND WE’VE SEEN FOR MONTHS, INTIMIDATING FLIERS BEING DROPPED OFF ON LOCAL STREETS. WE EVEN HAD IT HAPPEN HERE AT OUR STATION JUST ABOUT A MONTH AGO. WHAT A WASTE OF ENERGY. SO THE MOST RECENT REPORT HAPPENING IN ANDERSON TOWNSHIP THIS WEEK, WLWT. NEWS FIVE’S RICHARD CHILES LIVE WITH THE DETAILS AND THE REACTION ON FROM THE PEOPLE IMPACTED. RICHARD. WELL, KELLY, GOOD MORNING. WE’VE SEEN THESE TYPE OF NOTICES LITTERING ABOUT FIVE COMMUNITIES ALL OVER OUR REGION, INCLUDING HERE IN ANDERSON. NOW, THE LANGUAGE ON THE FLIERS INCLUDES NEO-NAZI IDEOLOGY AS WELL AS TARGETS AGAINST THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY. NOW WE’RE MAKING THE DECISION NOT TO SHOW YOU THESE THESE IMAGES. WE DO HAVE A COPY OF THE FLIERS, BUT NOT SHOWING THEM THE JEWISH COMMUNITY RELATIONS COUNCIL KEEPS TRACK OF THESE REPORTS AND CONTINUES, THEY SAY, TO SEE AN UPTICK. NOW, THE ORGANIZATION RECEIVED CALLS ABOUT THEM THIS WEEKEND FROM LOVELAND WALNUT HILLS, EAST WALNUT HILLS, DOWNTOWN CINCINNATI, AS WELL AS ANDERSON TOWNSHIP. IT’S AN ACT. STATE REPRESENTATIVE RACHEL BAKER IS NOT TAKING LIGHTLY. SHE SAYS HER OFFICE IS IN TOUCH WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. WE DON’T TOLERATE THAT AT ALL. AND THAT KIND OF HATE IS NOT SOMETHING THAT DEFINES OR MAKES UP OUR COMMUNITY. THESE FLIERS TARGET THE BLACK COMMUNITY FREQUENTLY. THEY REGULARLY WILL TARGET THE WILL TARGET THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY. THIS ONE CERTAINLY DID. SO WE KNOW THE PROBLEM IS GETTING WORSE AND WE JUST NEED THE COMMUNITY TO STAND UP AND SAY THAT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. NOW, THE JCRC HAS BEEN TRACKING THIS TYPE OF NOTICE LOCATION AND THESE TYPE OF FLIERS. THEY SAY THAT THEY HAVE BEEN SEEING AN UPTICK IN OUR AREA. THEY ARE ASKING ANYONE WHO DOES RECEIVE THESE FLIERS TO DOCK, ARGUMENT THEM FOR THE INFORMATION TO THEIR ORGANIZATION WHERE THEY CONTINUE TO TRACK THEM AND AGAIN, TAKE A PICTURE OF IT, CONTACT THE JCRC. REPORTING LIVE THIS MORNING IN ANDERSON, RICHARD CHILES WLWT NEWS FIVE. RICHARD, THANK YOU SO MUCH. NEW DEVELOPMENTS ON A STORY WE FIRST BROUGHT YOU AS BREAKING NEWS OUT OF WESTWOOD. THE AUTO LOT THAT BURNED DOWN IS ASKING FOR HELP GETTING BACK ON THEIR FEET. WE KNOW THE FIRE STARTED UNDERNEATH A 1988 PONTIAC FIERO AND THE OWNER TELLS US THE SHOP IS NOT COVERED. SO ALL COSTS ARE COMING OUT OF POCKET. IT REMAINS OPEN FOR BUSINESS DESPITE THE DAMAGE. BUT WE HAV
