Nigerian Armed Forces announced on their twitter page that troops have rescued 200 girls and 93 women in the Sambisa Forest. According to CNN, authorities could not confirm if any of the rescued girls were a part of the 200 school girls the militant group Boko Haram kidnapped in April of 2014 from the village of Chibok. The incident that occurred about a year ago resulted in a worldwide social media movement and the hashtag Bring Our Girls Back. Nigerian troops also destroyed three terrorist camps in the capture.

Numerous Baltimore residents have been out since early this morning cleaning up the trash and debris that littered the streets last night. Dump trucks have been collecting piles and piles of trash bags. After yesterday’s Baltimore riots that resulted in charred cars and buildings, hospitalized police officers and looted and damaged businesses, the city had a relatively calm morning. According to the New York Times, hundreds of National Guard members began deploying in Baltimore this morning and are expected to be joined by thousands of police officers from outside the city as they struggle to recover from all the rioting, looting and arson.

A month-long training exercise for Special Forces in Bastrop has many citizens concerned. Hundreds packed Bastrop’s county courthouse yesterday to get answers. According to TWC News, an army spokesman tried to explain the training operation, but some citizens said they were worried the exercise was part of a government takeover or spying operation. Others worried about the town being overrun with vehicles, helicopters and men running around with guns. The spokesman said that the army conducts these exercises all the time and Bastrop was chosen because a number of vets are donating their land. Operation Jade Helm will take place between mid-July and September on private farmland.

Pick-up truck tailgates are being stolen from vehicles in the Jowers and Strahan Coliseum parking lots according to reports received by the University Police Department. The most recent incident took place last Wednesday when a white extended cab suspect vehicle parked next to the victim’s truck and the driver of the suspect truck got out of their car to wander around the parking lot. As soon as the driver returned a second passenger in the suspect’s truck got out and the two of them proceeded to remove the tailgate from the victim’s truck and load it in their own. If you have any information in regards to the situation you are asked to call the Texas State UPD.
