Wanted Man Found Hiding in Closet Top Story Fri, 19 Sep 2014 3:44:42 PM Stephania Jimenez - Wanted Man Found Hiding in Closet

CORPUS CHRISTI - The Nueces County Sheriff's Office caught an aggravated robbery suspect two weeks after he was on the run.

Joshua Seamore, 29, was arrested Friday afternoon at the Island Villa Apartments on Nile Dr.

Deputies with the Nueces County Sheriff's Office said Seamore was wanted for aggravated robbery. Officers had spent the last two weeks searching for him, and finally caught him today after he showed up at his old job at the Applebee's restaurant on SPID.

"We were at his apartment, and then we got a tip that he was at Applebee's where he works. When we went in, he saw us and ran out," explained Lt. Ashley Isaac, with the Nueces County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies spent about 40 minutes looking for Seamore and found him hiding inside a closet at an apartment at the Island Villa complex.

In addition to aggravated robbery, Seamore also faces evading arrest and burglary charges.

Desalination Progress Top Story Fri, 19 Sep 2014 3:41:47 PM Caroline Flores Desalination Progress

CORPUS CHRISTI - Efforts to get a desalination plant in Corpus Christi is making huge strides. An agreement between the Port Industries and the City of Corpus Christi is getting us one step closer.

The city says Corpus Christ is experiencing one of the worst droughts we've ever seen. Our Port Industries use 40% of our water supply. In response to the drought, the Industries went to the city wanting a secure drought resistant water source.

"We went to them and said, we get it. You're our customer. We want... You know... What do you need? And they say we need reliability. We said how do you define that? Desal," said City Councilman Mark Scott.

Since that conversation took place, a couple months ago, their hard work is now reaching a milestone. Within the next week an agreement is expected to be signed by the city and port industries can move forward with a seawater desalination plant.

"Now how big, where, how much, that's kinda all yet to be determined," said Councilman Scott.

That will come after the agreement is signed. Once they figure out all the logistics, the next step will be to look for contractors and developers to begin turning seawater into usable water for our port industries. The best part about the desal plant is it would be privately financed the refineries and port would pay for the desalinated water.

"It's not as though we're asking the residents to do something for industry. It's all about industry pulling its weight and doing its fair share," said Port Industries Executive Director Bob Paulison.

All of this is dependant on the cost. But if the price is right, both the port industries and the city say they are ready to hit the ground running on Corpus Christi's first desal plant.

If everything plays out as expected the city hopes to begin searching for contractors and developers by next year.
