Sunrise in the Sandhills Good morning -- it's Monday May 21, 2018 -- Are you ready for some sunshine? Unfortunately we won't see much sun today, although this week won't be as constantly stormy as last week... but there's still plenty of rain in the forecast. Now, here's your Sunrise News from WIOZ:

The Circle K on US-1 and Council Way was robbed at gunpoint early Friday morning. SandhillsSentinel-dot-com reports a black male entered the store at about 4:00 armed with a handgun... he got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. Nobody was injured in the robbery. The suspect was wearing a dark hoodie with writing or an image on the chest, blue jeans, and a bandanna. Anyone with information is asked to contact Aberdeen Police.

A traffic safety and enforcement checkpoint in Pinehurst Friday night netted two drivers for DWI... AberdeenTimes-dot-com reports four law enforcement agencies set up the checkpoints on Highway 5 and Highway 2, as well as on Murdocksville Road at Lincoln Avenue. In addition to the DWI arrests, the checkpoint resulted in one arrest for marijuana possession, one for drug paraphernalia, and several others.

Fayetteville Police say a Crimestoppers tip has led to the arrest of a fourth suspect in a January 2017 murder that took place at the Motel 6 in Fayetteville. 19-year-old Iona Thomas was arrested in South Carolina in connection with the shooting death of Calvin Blackshire Jr. A live video of Blackshire's death was streamed online for 10 minutes before help arrived.

(AP) - The 82nd Airborne Division War Memorial Museum has reopened its main gallery with new exhibits that cover the division's operations against terrorism. The Fayetteville Observer reports the main exhibit gallery was closed for nearly two years. The renovations are complete just in time for the annual All American Week, which starts today. The week typically brings hundreds of veterans and thousands of visitors onto Fort Bragg.

On Saturday, police discovered 120 gallons of liquid methamphetamine stored in a fuel tank on a semi-truck in Harnett County. WRAL-dot-com reports the driver, 49-year old Raul Topete Arreola, and another man, 48-year-old Aquileo Perez Pineda, were charged with trafficking methamphetamine. Harnett County Sheriff Wayne Coats says when converted into crystal meth, it would have had a street value of 90-point-8 million dollars.

(AP) - At least one resident of the North Carolina mountains is dead after heavy rains triggered mudslides and flooding. Polk County Manager Marche Pittman said Saturday that searchers have recovered the body of a woman whose home was crushed by a mudslide in an area of rolling hills near the town of Tryon.

(AP) - Police say a man intentionally rammed a vehicle into a steak and seafood outlet in Gaston County, killing his daughter and daughter-in-law who had been seated inside the restaurant with other family members. Bessemer City Police say preliminary evidence indicates the man purposely plowed the vehicle into the Surf and Turf Lodge. They've arrested the driver, Roger Self. He's been charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
