Father and son now both facing charges

CONWAY, AR – 24 year old Joshua David Westenhover was arrested just one day after the arrest of his father. Both are accused of theft by receiving.

Faulkner County Prosecuting Attorney Cody Hiland confirms the 24 year old was arrested Friday. Captain Matt Rice with the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office says Joshua Westerhoven was arrested in Searcy County around 10:00pm Friday, and transferred to Faulkner County around 11:30pm. He is being held without bond in the Faulkner County Jail until his first court appearance, Monday.

Westenhover’s father, 49 year old David Foy Westenhover was arrested Thursday accused of theft by receiving and other charges in connection with the same case. He is free on $6,000.00 bond.

The 49 year old Westenhover is the Superintendent of Guy Perkins School District. He is on paid administrative leave but has told the school board he will resign at the end of the school year.

The school district announced an interim superintendent to replace Westenhover with a permanent replacement expected to be announced later.
