Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:

• Vehicle breaking or entering, Fendley Drive.

A Conway man says his vehicle was entered some time between Monday night and Tuesday afternoon, at his residence in the 800 block of Fendley Drive.

The 54-year-old victim said his wallet — that included $98 cash and a re-loadable debit card — was stolen from his vehicle, which was left unlocked.

• Theft of property, Dave Ward Drive.

Walmart employees say an unidentified black male recently stole more than $160 from the store, located in the 3900 block of Dave Ward Drive.

Employees say the black male entered the store Monday night, took an item from the shelf and proceeded to the customer service desk.

Once there, the man presented a receipt to the office worker, and was given a full refund for the item.

The refund totaled $162.04, the police report states.

Loss prevention workers say the man was approximately 5-foot-9, medium build, bald and looked to be in his 30s or 40s.

• Shoplifting, Skyline Drive.

A Greenbrier man was arrested for shoplifting Monday night at Walmart, located in the 1100 block of Skyline Drive.

Loss prevention employees say they observed the man conceal five DVDs, and attempt to leave the store.

After being approached by employees, the man turned over the DVDs, and was taken into custody by Conway police officers.

The man was charged with theft of property, the police report states.

• Vehicle accident, Appalachian Drive.

Conway police responded to a vehicle accident, with property damage, Monday morning in the 1700 block of Appalachian Drive.

According to an accident report, the owner of a 2000 Toyota Corolla, put her vehicle in neutral and pushed it out of her garage, and into the street.

Police say the vehicle rolled down the driveway, across the street, and into her neighbor’s garage door, before it struck another unoccupied, parked vehicle, which crashed into the interior wall of the residence at 1700 Appalachian Drive.

The woman told police she was unable to reach the vehicle, and enter it, before the vehicle rolled across the street and into her neighbor’s garage.

Police say the second vehicle, a 2005 Cadillac CTS, moved approximately two feet, upon impact, and was pushed into the wall.

Total damage in the accident was estimated at $7,400.

The owner of the Toyota Corolla was found at fault in the accident, police said.

• First-degree criminal mischief, Misty Lane.

A Conway woman says one of her kitchen windows, at her residence in the 2400 block of Misty Lane, recently received damage that was believed to have been caused by a pellet gun.

The 76-year-old victim said she has neighbors who were recently shooting at birds and squirrels with a pellet gun.

Police said the window’s outside pane would need to be replaced. Damage was estimated at $250. Officers attempted to make contact with the victim’s neighbors, but were unsuccessful.

Wait. What?

"the owner of a 2000 Toyota Corolla, put her vehicle in neutral and pushed it out of her garage, and into the street."

Why in the world would someone do that? Does it require a rolling start?

"The owner of the Toyota Corolla was found at fault in the accident, police said."

I sure as heck hope so!
