5 Facts You Need to Know Before You Go

  1. Happening Monday, a house committee is expected to look into impeaching secretary of state Dianna Duran. Five republicans and five democrats will investigate the allegations against Duran. This comes after the Attorney General’s office filed charges against the secretary accusing her of turning campaign donations into spending cash.
  2. An Albuquerque woman is facing charges after police said she was busted trying to sell stolen property back to the victim. Police said 32 year old Crystal Romero asked the victim for $400 in exchange for his stolen electronics recently taken from his home. She agreed to meet up with the victim and that’s when police made the bust.
  3. Today is expected to be mostly sunny. Highs in the upper 80’s to mid-90’s. Tonight should be mostly clear, with lows in the mid to upper 50’s.
  4. The City of Albuquerque is wanting to put in a new warning system to alert people of flood dangers in arroyos. We’ve seen it before, people—including kids, hanging out in the arroyos when storms further up send fast moving water downstream and they’re swept away. The new system would be set up in the arroyo along I-40 and alert AFD when the water levels are dangerous. They would then warn the public. But it’s not a done deal yet, the public needs to vote yes on the bond come November.
  5. An Albuquerque pilot is waking up a new record holder. This weekend Jon Sharp beat an air speed record for planes that weigh less than 23,000 pounds. How fast did he fly? 420 miles per hour. The previous record held was 356 miles per hour.
