Happy Wednesday from the FOX6 Newsroom! This is Jonathan Hardison with a look at some of the stories we're working on for tonight.

Targeting teens

Could your kids be the next victim of identity theft? Surprisingly teens are one of the hotter targets for thieves right now, especially their medical records so we asked Erika Gonzalez to dig into this issue and figure out why this has become such a big issue and, more importantly, how to prevent your children from becoming a victim and she'll share what she learned tonight on FOX6 News at 9.

Terrible case of cruelty
 
And a Bibb County woman is facing a slew of animal cruelty charges tonight after at least 15 animals found on her property had to be euthanized because they were so malnourished. Josh Gauntt has been out to the property and is on his way
back to our Tuscaloosa bureau right now to put together the sequence that lead to her arrest and figure out how the rest of the animals found there are going to be taken care of, his report is all new on FOX6 News at 10.
 
Those stories and more beginning at 9 on FOX6 News. I hope you'll watch us on air, online at MyFoxAl.com or in the WBRC News app by clicking "Live Newscasts."
