Sheriff's Office: Man sells stolen house trailer


FAULKNER COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) – A Faulkner County man is in custody for allegedly selling a house trailer that was stolen.

The Faulkner County Sheriff's Office said they took a report Feb. 27 of a house trailer being stolen from a home on North Madrid in Conway.

The suspect, 38-year-old Jason Curtsinger who owns moving company JT Mobile Home Services, brought his crew and equipment to North Madrid and removed the mobile home that was for sale.

The Sheriff's Office said Curtsinger eventually sold the trailer that he did not own, to someone in England for $12,500 with $3,000 down and $350 per month. Authorities said Curtsinger allegedly didn't want to go "through a bank or worry about interest".

PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - I spent the day visiting Pine Bluff, walking around and going to different visitor centers. Before I visited the area, I posted on Facebook that I was going to Pine Bluff (See original post: http://on.kthv.com/1jbwVrA). Based on some comments left by folks there, I half-expected to find a city in shambles, with decrepit buildings and sporting a mere shadow of a by-gone era. I was pleasantly surprised to find exactly the opposite.

Tornado Hero Gets a Friendly Gift


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – A local guardswoman who lost everything in last month's tornado got a big surprise on Saturday. Cars for Heroes and Tide Dry Cleaners came together and gave Jennifer Champion a car!

"It's going to help a lot," she said. "It's going to help a lot to get them where they need to go."

And by them, she meant her four children: Alexis, 16, Kylea, 15, Dylan, 14, and Haley, 6. Their home was destroyed when a tornado hit the city of Vilonia in April. The whole family has been staying with Champion's mother, Carrell Wade, in Conway.

"It's been an overwhelming mix of emotions," Wade said.

"It's been hard cause of all the memories and stuff that we've lost," Alexis said. "It's just been difficult."

"We've been having to use my grandma's cars," Dylan said.

Terry Frantz with Cars for Heroes had a surprise waiting for Champion in West Little Rock.

Staff member shares thoughts on students dedicating lip dup to her fight against cancer

GREENBRIER, Ark. (KTHV) - The lyrics of Madisa's song, "Overcomer" are the words to Dana Taylor's testimony. "The whole student body, the whole staff, you know they all come together and did this for me and it was overwhelming," Dana Taylor begins.

Taylor is the administrative assistant at Greenbrier High School and a person who many say helps keep the building in order. But in January of this year her duties were put on hold after being diagnosed with cancer. Taylor says, "It was tough the first three months or so and it got a little better and I got stronger."
