    The NYPD says they have identified the suspects for the major security breach that had white flags replace the American flags at the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City, according to the New York Post. Police say they only know the suspects by nicknames, not their legitimate names. They are working on getting their names in order to bring the suspects in for questioning. The Post says nearly three dozen detectives were on the case.

PHOENIX -

It's an award you may not have known existed -- the National Truck Driving Champion.

But Phoenix is home to the latest truck driving champ and the first ever woman to hold the title.

Ina Daly stands out amongst the crowd when it comes to truck drivers at Conway Freight.

Not only because she's a woman in a male dominated profession -- but because she's one of the very best behind the wheel of a big rig.

Daly was crowned the first ever female Truck Driving Champion in 76 years of the competition.

Topping the tanker truck division, she'll be recognized with a personalized truck with her name on it, used by the company she works for.

"It's really something to drive a company truck and now my names on it and no one else can drive it. That's really special," says Ina Daly, Truck Driving Champion. "I knew it was a matter of time before a woman won and I was hoping it would be me."

Daly was also presented with a giant check worth $45,000.
