Arnold Jenkins is back in the news as he has been restored as an active member of Citadel and has had his business, Vanguard Salvage, returned to him. Jenkins was involved in a lawsuit earlier this year but he won his legal battle but lost much of his business assets.

When asked what next, Jenkins said, “I am off to find out what happened to my friend Salma Hayek, she was kidnapped while I was in trial and I must assume that she needs rescue.
