4 arrested on drug charges

LONOKE, Ark. (KTHV) - Four people are under arrest after officers find them in possession of stolen property and presciption drugs.

The Lonoke County Sheriff's Office was helping parole/probation officers in finding Jason Vires, 32, and John Wilson, 32.

The two were found in a home on Barnes Street in Lonoke. Authorities found and seized 10.5 grams of meth in the form of "ice", numerous items of drug paraphernalia, and prescription medication.

Also found inside the home were three flat screen TVs, prescription medication, and other items that had been taken during a residential burglary that happened at a home on Hwy. 70 earlier that morning.

Today's Box Office: Preview of new CBS shows

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV 11 Film Critic Jonathan Nettles couldn't find a movie so instead he's talking about the new CBS shows.

This week, the local theaters didn't have any new movies showing on Thursday night which created quite the conundrum for this film critic. How can I review a movie if I haven't seen it? I can say things like "it should be good" or "it has an actor/director/producer whose work is usually good" but often I've said that about a film before going to see it and I've been disappointed. So, what does a film critic do when he hasn't seen a movie for his weekly segment? Sometimes, a gift like CBS premiere week drops in your lap.

Let's talk about these new CBS shows.

On September 23rd, CBS launches the fall season (that means new shows) and this year, they're giving us 3 comedies, 1 drama, and 1 looks-like-a dramedy.

Cabot drive brings in 333,097 Diapers; Bins out in Bryant

CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - The final numbers for the THV Diaper Drive in Cabot are in, and the grand total is 333,097!

Here's how it all breaks down. We collected 27,947 diapers and raised $6,103.03, which translates to 305,150 diapers!

Combined, that equals 333,097 diapers for families in need, and that was collected in just one drive! An amazing feat because last year, we collected 126,000 diapers total.

Help us continue helping the Arkansas Rice Depot. The bins at the Bryant Walmart are now out waiting for your donations.

Then THV's Liz Massey and her son Cruz will be there broadcasting live Tues., Sept. 17 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. collecting diapers and dollars. Then on Sept. 24, they'll be live at the Conway Walmart on Highway 65N.

THV 11 Showcase Game of the Week Preview

LONOKE, Ark. (KTHV) - Week 2 of THV 11's Showcase Game of the Week features the Beebe Badgers visiting the Lonoke Jackrabbits Friday night.

The Jackrabbits have taken 3 of 4 from the Badgers including a 14-7 loss in Beebe last season.

Lonoke knows Beebe will be looking for revenge this season and Head Coach Doug Bost knows exactly what type of atmosphere to expect when the Badgers come to town.

"Stands will be packed. You'll have the cheerleaders, the band members, the hot dogs, the hamburgers. It's just a good atmosphere on a Friday Night," Bost says.

Along with plenty of fans Beebe brings a fierce running game that has Head Coach John Shannon excited about the Badgers chances.

"Not everyone gets to see the power run game anymore and it's hard for teams to prepare for it. So when we execute it and execute it right other teams have a hard time with it because they don't see it very often," says Shannon.
