Updated: Stolen weapons investigation targets Guy-Perkins school grounds

Posted: November 7, 2012 - 5:02pm

Followup: Guy-Perkins Superintendent David Westenhover said he was placed in handcuffs at the school Wednesday by deputies with the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office. He said he was taken to the office's Criminal Investigations Division for questioning and released.

Second update: Faulkner County Sheriff's Office Sgt. David Hall said the office's Criminal Investigations Division questioned Guy-Perkins Superintendent David Westenhover in connection with an investigation.

Sheriff's Maj. Andy Shock said the investigation is related to stolen weapons and property.

According to Hall, deputies executed a search warrant at the superintendent's home, which is on school grounds.

Hall said the superintendent's son is part of the investigation, and that Westenhover's son lives with his father on school property.

Some information conflicts with information provided earlier by Guy Police Chief Dave Martini, who stated the superintendent was arrested by CID.

Martini said his department assisted in the arrest, and that Westenhover was "transported to Faulkner County CID."

Previous update:

Guy-Perkins Superintendent David F. Westenhover was arrested on school property before students were released for the day Wednesday, according to Guy Police Chief Dave Martini.

Martini said his department assisted Faulkner County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division, who conducted the arrest.

Sheriff's Maj. Andy Shock said a search warrant was executed at Westenhover's residence, which is on school grounds, as a result of an investigation into stolen weapons and property.

Shock said Westenhover and investigators are in interviews, and no more information is available at this time.

"We're at the point where we can't get any more details right now," he said.

Investigation/publicity

Since when do law enforcement agencies announce investigation details before the investigation is completed. Looks like publicity seeking is at epidemic level in Faulkner County law enforcement agencies. Next will they announce when a search warrant has been issued?

Why steal guns, all the

Why steal guns, all the superintendant had to do was call the county judge's office and they would have given him some.

Hmmm...

Couldn't wait until after school let out?! The LC reports a false acount of events before the police leave the school yard? And no arrest of an actual thief?

There is more, much more to this story.

It's A well known fact that the mayor has a vindetta against the supervisor, and will do what ever it take to remove him from office, No matter what is said the fact is he has done a good job for Guy Perkins school.

Hmm

If the mayor doesn't like the supervisor then why was the superintendent arrested? It sounds like there is some super-confusion up in Guy. Superman better steer clear of the town or else he might get caught up in the anti-super sentiment.

No one is saying he's not doing a good job, it's the alleged criminal activity that is the issue here.

Next you'll tell us how O.J. Simpson was a really good running back.

Well he never won a championship at Buffalo, so to say we was good might be debatable. Now had you said He could jmp over a Hertz car rental desk better than anyone, I would completely agree.

Well, Dan Marino never won a Super Bowl. Does that automatically make him a terrible QB?

It takes a lot of people to win a championship in football.
