Three people were arrested Sunday for allegedly stealing items from Tractor Supply Company.
Autumn Page, 26, of Little Rock; William Rogers, 55, of North Little Rock and Johnnie Wigley, 33, of England were arrested on Interstate 30 with the reportedly stolen items in their vehicle.
According to a Benton Police Department report, officers were notified of the theft by a security system at the store.
The stolen items allegedly included a log splitter and tools, according to the report. Shortly after Officer Drew Brown reported the theft, Bryant police officers stopped a vehicle.
A former Bryant firefighter is facing charges for allegedly viewing illegal media depicting children on a computer at one of the fire stations.
Paul Ostrem, 49, of Bismark was charged this week with 35 counts of distributing, possessing or viewing sexually explicit materials involving a child.
In July of 2014, Assistant Fire Chief Brandon Futch reported to Fire Chief J.P. Jordan that inappropriate material was located on a computer at one of the fire stations.
Ostrem allegedly admitted later to knowing about the material, according to court documents.
