Charges dropped against ex-superintendent in Ark.

CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Prosecutors have dropped criminal charges against a former Guy-Perkins superintendent who was accused of theft.

David Westenhover was charged in January with theft by receiving and hindering apprehension. Prosecutors had accused him of possessing weapons that were reported stolen from another residence.

Prosecutor Cody Hiland tells the Log Cabin Democrat ( ) that charges were dismissed against Westenhover because there wasn't enough evidence against the former superintendent.

Westenhover said previously that he was handcuffed at the school in November before students were dismissed for the day.

Authorities have also charged Westenhover's son with theft by receiving in the same case. Prosecutors say those charges are still standing.
