The water advisory for an E. coli contamination at Caesar Creek has been lifted just in time for Memorial Day weekend.

A spokesman for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources told this news organization that samples came back and showed no elevated levels of bacteria. The advisory was initially issued after samples were taken on Monday at 8 a.m. at the beach at Caesar Creek Lake, according to the Ohio Health Department.

The samples on Monday showed a result of 3840 cfu/100 ml, or colony forming units per 100 milliliters of water. That value exceeds the Ohio Water Quality recommendations for public beaches of 235 colonies of E. coli per 100 milliliters of water.

The water quality is monitored throughout swim season for algae and bacteria from May through September. In 2016, Caesar Creek had two advisories — one that lasted a week and another that lasted only two days. In the past five years, the longest contamination advisory was back in 2013, which lasted 27 days. That advisory was for high bacteria levels, and the pollution source was unknown.

A large law enforcement presence was at a Germantown Pike property all day.

Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputies, a special weapons and tactics team and Regional Agencies Narcotics and Gun Enforcement task force members were on scene at a home in the 6700 block of Germantown Pike and deep into the woods of the property.

Deputies brought a semi and dumpster back into the woods. They were seen moving some of the trash around. They hauled away a backhoe as evidence.

Neighbors said deputies carried piles of items from that wooded area, as well as from a house and garage.

“They found stuff back there. They’ve carried out huge tubs, looked like it was really heavy. Big boxes of things. They carried out stuff in cloths, white cloths.”

Neighbors said the RANGE task force was ready to break down the home’s front door when one of them offered a key. They said they watched deputies carry out several guns, and then the task force did break a door to get into the garage.

One man was spotted handcuffed in back of a cruiser.

A Jacksonville, Florida, family saved a kitten from the side of a freeway Sunday.

Rebecca Marshall rescued the kitten, while her daughter, Allison Bullard, caught the entire event on video.

The rescue happened where I-95 North nears the Zoo Parkway.

Marshall said she was looking out the window when she spotted the kitten.

“We hurried and got off the exit and turned around,” Marshall said. “I was scared to death it’d be hit by a car or something by then.”

Bullard started to record, and nearly two agonizing minutes went by before they were able to get to the kitten.

“We were so scared he was going to run into traffic,” Bullard said. “He just ran straight ahead, it was scary.”

The kitten darted, but Marshall was able to catch up to it as it was trying to get into a storm drain.

“I just threw the towel over him and that was it, I caught him,” Marshall said.

The family wasn’t sure how the kitten ended up there.

Thankfully, the kitten from the incident should be fine.

“My dad, he noticed that we found him on Mile Marker 357, so we decided to name him Magnum, like the gun,” Bullard said.

They're bringing Magnum to the Jacksonville Humane Society on Tuesday.

“I knew that I was in danger the whole time, scared to death,” Marshall said. “But, I can’t just leave an innocent life.”

“So, it was worth it?” Action News Jax Reporter Russell Colburn asked

“It was worth it,” Marshall replied. “I’d do it again in a heartbeat.”
