K2 drug making a comeback in Pine Bluff

Saturday, April 25th, 2015


That’s one of the scariest things about synthetic marijuana, or K2, according to Wegner.

“You cannot reason with them. They act as if they can’t even understand the English language.”

Wegner says many users end up in the emergency room.

“These are chemicals that were put together that are not supposed to be put in your body and can have some very serious side effects.”

Often times it makes users become aggressive, violent and combative, according to Wegner.

“It’s hard to say how someone’s going to react. I’ve seen some just flat out pass out and sleep it off and then I’ve seen other become extremely violent.”

Arkansas banned synthetic marijuana in 2010, but Wegner said young people still seem to get their hands on it.

“Right now one of the biggest things we can do is especially educate parents because we’ve seen a lot of young kids come having being exposed to this stuff.”

According to Poison Control there are 47 different variations of K2 known in the state of Arkansas.

Church Raising Money For Crash Victims Yakel Culclager, And Their Three Children And Father

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. The four members of a family who died when their broken-down SUV was rear-ended on the Buckman Bridge on Monday afternoon had recently moved to Jacksonville. The victims’ husband and father, a corpsman at NAS Jacksonville, who had recently moved his family here from Arkansas, will return there with the burden of burying his wife and children in their home state.

The pastor of the family’s church — Trinity at Oakleaf — said the church is collecting online donations and gift cards to help the father, Dexter Culclager, pay for travel expenses. Gift cards can be dropped off at 800 Hammond Blvd. at the C Building front desk, and online donations can be made at

Dexter Culclager will be going home to Pine Bluff, Arkansas, for the funerals of his wife, 36-year-old Yakel Culclager, and their three children: 18-year-old Trequis Woods-Sims, 17-year-old Tradesia Woods-Sims and 6-year-old Trevieon Woods-Franklin.

All four were killed when the SUV they were in burst into flames after it was struck on the bridge, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The family had moved to Jacksonville’s Westside. A man who just heard the victims of the tragedy were his neighbors reacted with shock.

“The father had high hopes for his oldest son. He was going to make a decision whether he would join the military or not,” said Dean Buben. “His older daughter’s about to graduate high school and was talking about college. That’s what she was excited for. And the little kid was full of energy. He run around this neighborhood like a firecracker all of the time.”

Security Cameras Catch Thieves On Video Who Stole $14,000 Worth Of Rims

Friday, November 21st, 2014


(KATV) – It took three tries for thieves to ram a van through the door of Chrome City Custom Wheels and only minutes to leave with $14,000 worth of rims. Owner Crag Bratton says he knew the minute his phone rang at 11 p.m. that his store had been hit.

“They said glass break sensor, and I knew it was a break in like that because they’ve already hit the other businesses down the street,” said Bratton.

Bratton’s done everything he can to prevent break-ins, but when criminals are determined, they can often find a way inside the business. This time it left a huge hole in the front of his building.

“These guys need to get caught. They’re getting away with it too easy,” said Bratton.

Police responded quickly and security footage caught it all clearly on tape, but technology can only get you so far.

“The problem comes when you don’t know who you’re looking at, and that’s when we kind of depend on viewers of your station to kind of give us a heads up on who that person might be,” explained Lt. Sidney Allen of the Little Rock Police Department.

Bratton hopes catching these guys now could stop another business owner from having to deal with a mess like the one he has.

“About 45 minutes after the break in they found the van in Pine Bluff, but no luck finding the guys yet,” said Bratton.
