JONESBORO, Ark. (KTHV) - An update tonight on a business owner who allegedly pocket-dialed his former employee while hiring someone to kill him.

JPD said they, along with the Secret Service, have been looking into Barnett and his used car dealership since May for forging bills of sales to his bank.
Police said Barnett would forge vehicle identification numbers from other businesses to complete the bill of sale.
Then, he'd get money from his bank for the non-existent vehicles.
Authorities said in total he received more than $80,000.
