VILONIA, Ark. (AP) - Vilonia police say two men have been arrested on suspicion of looting in a neighborhood hit hard by Sunday's tornado.

Police Chief Brad McNew says the men were caught stealing copper wire and compressors from air conditioners in the town's Parkwood subdivision.

James Howard and Dustin Houston, both of Morrilton, were arrested last night on misdemeanor charges of theft, trespassing and possession of an instrument of crime.

Both are being charged with theft of property, criminal trespass, obstruction of governmental operations, and possessing instruments of a crime. Both are being held on $5,500 bond.
