first_imgLawrenceburg, IN—Tuesday, Dearborn County Prosecutor Lynn Deddens filed a single count of robbery on Samantha Wyatt,26, of Trenton, Ohio. These charges stem from the bank robbery that occurred at the US Bank, Dillsboro on Monday, November 25th, 2019.The charges were brought after a detailed and thorough investigation.

Detectives from the Dearborn County Sheriff’s Department and the Special Crimes Unit began looking into this tip. It was learned that many of the same physical features that were visible from security footage from US Bank matched Wyatt.

Medals: Minister pledges to break 20-year jinx at Tokyo Olympics

first_imgRelatedPosts Minister gives condition for resumption of contact sports Minister pledges support for development of AI, robotics in Nigeria NSF 2020: Sports minister raises fresh hope The Minister of Youths and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has pledged to ensure Nigeria wins gold medals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and break the jinx of not winning gold medals since Sydney 2000. The minister made the pledge in an interview after receiving the Team Nigeria contingent which participated in the 12th African Games at Morocco. The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Team Nigeria arrived in Abuja on Sunday evening after finishing second overall at the just-concluded African Games in Rabat. The minister who commended the contingent for a job well done promised to work with relevant stakeholders to ensure Nigeria wins gold medals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. He said: “This is a team of champions. Members of the team have been professional and committed. In spite of all odds, they came out tops just behind Egypt on the medals table. “The result of Morocco signposts what is going to happen at Tokyo Olympics, We will go there and win not just one gold, but gold medals by the grace of God. “This is a team that is very inspiring and we intend to keep them together.” NAN reports that Nigeria last won an Olympic gold medal at the Sydney 2000 Olympics in the men’s 4x400m, though it was formally awarded to Nigeria eight years later due to Team USA’s disqualification on doping grounds. Nigeria has been participating in the Olympics since 1952, but it only won its first gold medals at Atlanta in 1996 in football and long jump. The country has won three gold, 10 silver and 12 bronze medals since then. At the last Olympics at Rio de Janeiro in 2016, Nigeria managed to win just a bronze medal in the football event. The Tokyo Olympics is scheduled to hold from July 24 to August 9, 2020.Tags: 12th African GamesSunday DareTokyo Olympicslast_img read more

F1: Leclerc signs new Ferrari deal until 2024

first_imgRelatedPosts Leclerc ends Ferrari’s nine-year wait, wins Italian GP  Verstappen wins Austrian Grand Prix  Formula One: Heartbreak for Leclerc as Hamilton wins in Bahrain Charles Leclerc has signed a new long-term contract with the Ferrari Formula One team through to the end of the 2024 season. Ferrari Academy driver Leclerc joined the Scuderia at the start of last season after a year plying his trade with Sauber, agreeing a deal believed to last until the end of the 2021 season. But he has been rewarded for a successful maiden campaign with Ferrari with a new and improved contract. A delighted Leclerc said: “I am very happy to be staying on with Scuderia Ferrari. This past season, driving for the most illustrious team in Formula 1, has been a dream year for me. “I cannot wait to enjoy an even deeper relationship with the team after what has been an intense and exciting 2019. I’m keen to see what the future holds and I can’t wait to get going again next season.” Leclerc went into 2019 as teammate to Sebastian Vettel, who was given number one status by team principal Mattia Binotto due to his experience as a four-time champion and after four years with Ferrari. But Leclerc quickly established himself, claiming two race wins and seven pole positions to the one victory and two poles for Vettel, and finishing 24 points ahead of the 32-year-old German in the drivers’ standings. The new deal makes clear that Ferrari see 22-year-old Monegasque Leclerc as their long-term future. Vettel’s current deal expires at the end of 2020. Binotto has no doubt that with Leclerc, Ferrari will again be successful. Next term will be the team’s 13th year without a drivers’ champion, and 12 since they last won the constructors’ championship. Binotto said: “With each passing race this year, our wish to extend our contract with Charles became ever more self-evident and the decision means he will now be with us for the next five seasons. It demonstrates that Charles and the Scuderia have a firm future together. “Charles has been part of our family since 2016 and we are more than proud of the results we are achieving with our Academy. “We are therefore very pleased to be able to announce that he will be with us for many years to come and I’m sure that together, we will write many new pages in the history of the Prancing Horse.”Tags: Charles LeclercFerrari AcademyScuderiaScuderia Ferrarilast_img read more

Reigning champions face tough test as Champions League action resumes on DStv

first_imgRelatedPosts Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says Neymar bags two-match ban UCL: Benfica kicked out by player who left club one week earlier + other results SuperSport viewers on DStv can look forward to a breathtaking football treat on the midweek of February 18 and 19, 2020 as the first leg of the UEFA Champions League last 16 games get underway. There will be four fixtures across Europe. The UEFA Champions League action resumes for the first time in 2020 with a potential thriller between Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain at Signal Iduna Park on the evening of Tuesday. This clash could be a goal-laden affair, with two hugely attack-minded teams and a bevvy of stars on display. PSG boast the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Angel Di Maria and Mauro Icardi, while Dortmund’s youthful promise is highlighted in the likes of Jadon Sancho, Achraf Hakimi and January signing Erling Haaland. The latter player has made a huge impact at BVB since his move from Salzburg and will be looking to add to the eight goals he has already scored in the competition while on the books of the Austrian side. “It’s absolutely fantastic,” Haaland said in regard to scoring in front of Dortmund’s famous Yellow Wall, the largest standing terrace in Europe. “It’s just a fantastic feeling that I haven’t had before.” Tuesday also sees reigning European and world champions Liverpool return to the scene of their UEFA Champions League final triumph from last season, the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, to face hosts Atletico. While the Reds have been absolutely imperious across all competitions virtually through the whole of the season thus far, this has been a tough campaign for Diego Simeone’s Rojiblancos, who are very much in a transitional phase. Yet if any team can find a way to stymie Liverpool’s awesome attack, then it is surely Atletico. SuperSport viewers will be treated to their next double dose of UEFA Champions League action on the evening of Wednesday, with Atalanta hosting Valencia at the San Siro at the same time that Tottenham Hotspur tackle RB Leipzig in London. La Dea are one of the most free-flowing and attacking teams in Europe and their recovery from a position of virtual elimination in the group stage is one of the best fairytales of this season’s UEFA Champions League, but they may find Albert Celades’ Valencia a tough nut to crack. At the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, former UEFA Champions League winner Jose Mourinho and highly-rated young coach Julian Nagelsmann will have a fascinating battle of tactical wits. While Spurs have become more direct and pragmatic under “the Special One”, Leipzig are a well-drilled attacking team, though their confidence has taken a hit with some poor recent results and it will be interesting to see how Nagelsmann lifts his player for a clash against Spurs.
