(Mountain Home) – A Viola, Arkansas man who is already being held in the Baxter County Detention Center on various charges has now been charged with an additional offense related to theft of a motor vehicle.
28-year-old Joshua Langston, who has been in the detention center since August 21, was charged with felony theft of property.
On August 2, it was reported to the Sheriff’s Office that a 1997 Lincoln MK 8 passenger car valued at approximately $2,500 had been stolen from a home in Salesville. The vehicle was located and recovered the next day, August 3 in Fulton County by the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office.

Bond on this charge is $15,000. He is scheduled to appear in Circuit Court next week.
