A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
A new state agency is helping law enforcement gain the upperhand on car thieves.
The Colorado Auto Theft Prevention Authority started in January to help local police forces track and recover stolen vehicles faster and in higher numbers.
The authority brings together three task forces throughout the state that share information on thefts, which agency manager Tom Boyle says is key.
Most cars are found outside the jurisdictions they were stolen from.
So far the three task forces have recovered 153 stolen vehicles worth about $1.8 million through the first six months of the year.
The three task forces -- Northern Colorado's Auto Theft Team, Denver Metro Auto Theft Task Force and the Reduce Auto Theft of Southern Colorado.
