Posted: December 3, 2013 - 3:53pm

Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:

•Breaking or entering building, Harkrider Street.

The owner of Conway Tire and Battery says his business, in the 2200 block of Harkrider Street, was recently broken into, and $2,500 worth of tires was stolen.

The 54-year-old Conway man told police he discovered approximately 50 used tires missing when he opened his business around 8 a.m. Monday. The owner showed police a hole, through which he believes the suspects entered.

The theft is believed to have occurred between 5 p.m. Friday, and Monday morning.

According to the owner, previous thefts of this nature have occurred.


•First-degree criminal mischief, East Robins Street.

Independent Living Services, located in the 600 block of East Robins Street, said copper tubing was recently stolen from one of its air conditioning units.

An employee told police the theft is expected to have occurred between 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, and 8:30 a.m. Monday, while the business was closed for the Thanksgiving holiday.


•Possession of controlled substance, Mary Ellen Drive.

Conway police seized an undisclosed amount of suspected marijuana while responding to a broken down vehicle on Mary Ellen Drive on Monday morning.

Officers say they made contact with two Conway males, ages 19 and 20, around 5:40 a.m., and immediately smelled an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

Police asked the driver of the vehicle if marijuana was located in the vehicle, to which he responded he was unsure because it was the other man’s vehicle. Officers then asked the passenger the same question, at which point the man reached into the vehicle, and pulled out a bag of a “green, leafy substance,” the police report states.

Police seized the suspected marijuana, and the man admitted it belonged to him. The substance was entered into evidence, and sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for testing, the police report states.

No charges were filed.


•Theft of property, Oak Street.

A Conway man says groceries were stolen from his cart while at a Red Box kiosk.

The 27-year-old victim said he was renting a movie from the kiosk located inside of Kroger, in the 100 block of Oak Street, when three teenage black males stole groceries from his cart.

When asked for a description of the suspects, the victim was only able to recall possibly seeing a red hat, a black jacket and a do-rag.

The victim told police the incident alarmed him, because his infant child was also in the cart at the time of the theft.

The victim was unable to provide police with a list of stolen items, because the report was filed at the police station on Sunday evening. No estimated time of the theft was listed in the report.
