Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:
•Theft of property, East Robins Street. The City of Conway Street Department, located at 100 Robins Street, says almost $2,000 worth of tools were stolen from two city trucks.
A department supervisor told police he believes the theft occurred Monday night. Department workers told police they believe the suspects gained access through an area of “old fencing” that surrounds the building.
Police said there was no evidence to be collected because the trucks were used prior to the theft being reported.
The items claimed to be stolen included a Skil hammer drill and bit set, a socket set, measuring wheel, a Stihl gas-powered concrete saw and a Skil circular saw. Keys to the trucks’ utility beds were also reported stolen.
The items were valued at $1,964.
•Second-degree terroristic threatening, East Oak Street. Police say a Conway man, on Tuesday, entered Car-Mart, located in the 1200 block of East Oak Street, and threatened to “shoot up the place” the next day.
Officers arrived on scene around 5:10 p.m. and made contact with the dealership’s general manager who said the 25-year-old man was upset with a situation concerning his vehicle. The general manager told police he did not want a report because he did not believe the man would do anything.
Police advised the general manager that extra patrol would be suggested.
•Violation of omnibus DWI act, April Drive. Police arrested a Conway man Tuesday afternoon for driving while intoxicated after finding him asleep behind the wheel of a vehicle.
Officers arrived on scene at the intersection of April Drive and Padgett Road, around 2:06 p.m., after receiving reports of the man.
Police observed the man, asleep, behind the wheel of a Ford Ranger that was stopped at the intersection.
The caller, who stayed at the scene until police arrived, informed officers he had been passed out for 10 minutes.
Police attempted to wake the man by knocking on the window, but were unsuccessful. The man awoke as police opened the door, the police report states.
Officers turned off the vehicle and took the keys from the ignition. Police observed an alcoholic beverage in the vehicle and said the man stared “blankly” while officers attempted to question him. It took the man several moments before he was able to respond to officers.
When asked if he had taken anything or been drinking, the man did not respond, police said. Officers said the man had difficulty finding his driver’s license, “despite it being plainly in sight,” the police report states.
Police said all of the man’s movements were “slow and seemed to require a lot of concentration.”
MEMS responded to the scene to check the individual and told police he was not sure where he was.
After undergoing a field sobriety test, the man was taken into police custody and charged with driving while intoxicated. Police said the man’s blood alcohol level, tested at the Faulkner County jail, registered at 0.19.
•Fraudulent use of a credit card, Main Street. A Conway woman says her debit card was used over the weekend in Florida, resulting in $1,571.49 worth of unauthorized charges.
The 58-year-old victim said her card was used at several locations in Tampa and Largo. The victim told police she noticed the activity after having her card denied at several locations in Conway, due to insufficient funds.
