NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - The City of Norfolk is accused of violating a permit when it removed the bald eagle nests at the Norfolk Botanical Garden last year.
An attorney for Eagle on Alliance sent a letter to City Manager Marcus Jones earlier this week accusing the city of violating the Virginia Game and Inland Fisheries permit.
The nests were removed in October at the request of the Federal Government because they were too close to Norfolk International Airport.
The city said the nest was under construction per USDA-Wildlife Services and covered under the permit.
Camden County Sheriff Tony Perry said that during the last two weeks, incidents of breaking and entering and home or vehicle larceny have increased in two areas of the county.
A Facebook post helped Elizabeth City Police identify and locate the suspect of a hit-and-run incident involving a 3-year-old this week.
As Newport News Fire Chief Scott Liebold plans to retire at the end of this month, the city is looking for his replacement -- and they want your help.
