Authorities have made two arrests this morning in the serial sniper case.
An official with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms says the pair was arrested at a rest stop off Interstate 70 in Frederick county, Maryland.
He says the men were taken into custody without incident.
Police had earlier issued an arrest warrant for John Allen Muhammad, a former soldier who was being sought on a federal weapons charge.
He was believed to be traveling with a 17- year-old male.
Jim Acosta has an update.

The sniper shootings have prompted Governor Warner to consider safety measures for Virginia voters when they head to the polls November fifth.
For now, those measures do NOT include posting National Guard troops at polling locations-- something Maryland's governor IS considering.
Warner says he's looking at ways of making polling places more secure, and at other options, such as greater use of absentee balloting.
He says more people may be moved inside polling places.

Now the state's closing 9 other D-M-V customer service centers even earlier than expected.
The offices were supposed to close on November 15th as part of the governor's budget cutting plan.
Instead they'll close for good today.
The D-M-V says it can not staff the offices because so many employees are taking earned leave time before they're laid-off.

That word came yesterday-- during a hearing to determine if Bowman should be released on bond. For now-- Bowman is being held as a material witness in the kidnapping of nine year old Jennifer Short.

This is a bank photograph of him.. he's a white male, about 30 years old, 5-feet-10 inches tall and 180 pounds.


Anyone with information should call the Campbell County sheriff's office.

A circuit court judge said he will wait until jury selection, before moving Livingston "Bud" Pritchett's trial.
Pritchett was convicted in 19-99 for the shooting death of Estel (ES-tul) Singleton, but was given a new trial because the jury wasn't aware of the extent of his mental retardation.
Pritchett's attorneys believe he would not get a fair trial a second time because of the publicity.
His new trial is set for November 12th.

[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Dublin;]

The new V-N series will be produced at the Dublin location and help secure jobs for its 16-hundred employees. The truck is equipped with an engine that meets newly mandated diesel emission standards. Officials say the standards may mean a loss of fuel economy for truckers but that Volvo's new truck will curb that loss because of its weight and aerodynamic design. Volvo is the only trucking manufacturer building a new truck with the modern engine and officials say because of that - their order board is full through the end of the year. (------------)
