Here are the top 3 stories in Scottsdale today:

  1. The Scottsdale police are investigating a series of vehicle arson attacks in the area. After two previous reports earlier in January, the police are investigating two more recent incidents that took place on January 17 and 21. Luckily, no injuries have been reported. There are currently no suspects. (AZ Central)
  2. The judge in the Alison Feldman murder case is moving to discard DNA evidence because it was obtained without a warrant, instead being matched to blood samples that should have been destroyed. The judge is calling the police’s behavior reckless and a violation of the defendant’s Fourth Amendment rights. Prosecutors are trying to appeal the judge’s decision. (12news.com KPNX)
  3. On February 4, the 69th Annual Scottsdale Parada Del Sol Historic Parade and Trail’s End Festival will make its way to Old Town Scottsdale beginning at 10:00 A.M. One of the longest running community events in the city, the parade will feature the Scottsdale Charros, 150 floats, riders, horse-drawn carriages, marching bands, wagons, and stagecoaches. Celebrating different cultures, such as Mexican, Native American, Arabian, and Western, the parade route will run along Drinkwater Boulevard, to Scottsdale Road, and ends at Brown Avenue. After the parade, the Historic District will host the Trail’s End Festival from noon to 4 p.m. (Signals AZ)
