A Menifee woman was arrested for shoplifting at Walmart, located in the 1100 block of Skyline Drive, on Thursday afternoon.

Store employees told police they observed the 18-year-old female conceal several items, including headphones and two phone charges, and attempt to leave the store.

Upon arrival, police took the woman into custody and transported her to the Faulkner County jail where she was processed on a theft of property charge.

•Non-financial identity fraud, Irby Drive.

A Conway woman says she recently discovered her social security number was illegally used.

The victim said the social security office did not have a record of anyone using her number.

•Public intoxication, College Avenue.

A Conway man was arrested for public intoxication after hospital staff discovered the man in a closet.

Police arrived on scene, in the 2300 block of College Avenue, around 10:38 p.m. Wednesday, and discovered the 42-year-old man lying in the parking lot.

Conway Regional Medical Center staff told officers the man ran into the parking lot and laid down after he was discovered in a closet.
