Nearly 200 cats seized from hoarder

Hello again friends, it's Paul Cameron in the WBTV newsroom.

Tonight at 11:00PM—authorities seize nearly 200 cats from a pet hoarder.  Our reporter Dedrick Russell says you could not go into the house without seeing feces on the walls and smelling the stench of ammonia.  It was so strong; it burned the lungs with every breath.

This has been a summer of high heat and strong storms.  Again tonight, powerful winds knocked down trees near the Westside of Lake Norman.

If you have a small business or church, better put a wire cage around your air conditioning units.  Thieves are plying their trade in and around Charlotte again, stealing whole units to get the copper inside.

Beer and wine on a bike?  A small business called Party Peddlers says it will soon start giving tours of Uptown Charlotte while peddling customers around in a portable bar.  Right now, they're waiting to get a liquor license.
