Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:

•Residential burglary, Dave Ward Drive.

A Conway woman says she returned to her apartment Saturday after being gone for more than a week to discover her front door kicked in and thousands of dollars worth of property stolen.

The 22-year-old victim said she went home for Christmas on Dec. 18 and returned around 4 p.m. Saturday to find her apartment, located in the 2700 block of Dave Ward Drive, had been burglarized.

The victim said her roommate had also gone home for Christmas and appeared to have had items stolen.

Among the items stolen was a 32-inch Samsung television, a Blu-ray player, an adidas backpack, a tool box, a laptop and other household items. In all, the stolen property was valued at $3,450.

•Fraudulent use of a credit card, South Ash Street.

A Conway man says he recently discovered unauthorized charges to his bank account after leaving his debit card at a Little Rock strip club.

The 23-year-old victim said he and friends left the strip club around 3:30 a.m. Saturday, where his tab was $17, and went to IHOP.

Once at the restaurant, the victim said he noticed his debit card was missing. Later that morning, the victim said he noticed a $100 charge that he did not make.

The victim told police he has since canceled his debit card.

•Vehicle breaking or entering, Landover Trail.

Police say a Conway woman’s vehicle was recently entered and more than $7,000 in firearms was stolen.

Officers responded to the woman’s residence, located in the 2300 block of Landover Trail, around 8:53 a.m. Saturday.

The 28-year-old victim said she and her husband returned home around 9 p.m. Friday and left her purse and a bag containing the guns in the vehicle.

The victim told police she was made aware of the theft after receiving an email from Redbox thanking her for her rental of two video games. The transaction was completed around 5:16 a.m. at the Walgreens kiosk, located at the intersection of Harkrider and Oak streets.

Officers were able to obtain footage of a silver, four-door vehicle pull up to the kiosk, and a male exited to rent the two video games. Officers were unable to view the male’s face, the police report states.

Police were unable to locate any signs of forced entry, however, the victim stated the vehicle was locked.

The stolen property was valued at $7,350 in the police report.

On Friday afternoon, officers responded to another vehicle breaking or entering in the 1600 block of Southern Hills Road where a Conway man said his firearm was stolen from his vehicle.

The 34-year-old victim said the theft occurred between 8 p.m. Thursday and 2:30 p.m. Friday. The victim said one of his vehicle’s doors was not closed all the way when he locked his doors, which caused the doors to remain unlocked.

Officers were unable to obtain fingerprints from the scene.

The handgun was valued at $400 in the police report.

•Aggravated assault on family or household member, Clover Lane.

Police arrested a 26-year-old Conway man early Saturday morning for aggravated assault on a family or household member, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and carrying a weapon.

Officers observed the man with a handgun outside a residence in the 2700 block of Clover Lane around 12:52 a.m. Police were responding to reports of an armed subject.

Upon contact with the man, a responding officer drew a rifle and ordered the man to drop his weapon. Police said the man turned and walked toward the house and attempted to open the door. Police continued to order the man to drop his weapon, which was held down by his side.

The man then began to cry and yelled “I’m tired,” and threw the weapon onto the grass, the police report states. Multiple officers were able to subdue the suspect and place him into custody. While searching the man, officers located a magazine.

The victim, identified as a 23-year-old Conway woman, told police the man came home intoxicated around 12:25 a.m., and began an argument with her. The man then proceeded to go outside, and told the victim to come outside as well. The victim told police she then noticed he had a gun.

The victim said she then locked the door and went to a back bedroom with her child before hearing what she thought were gunshots.

Other witnesses also told police they heard gun shots prior to police arrival. Officers were able to locate three shell casings in the area.

According to court documents, the man was charged with aggravated assault on a family or household member, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and carrying a weapon.

I'm guessing that whatever

I'm guessing that whatever you need to pass to obtain a permit for guns does not include a common sense test? I seem to recall a woman a couple of months back who left her car unlocked at a daycare and had her purse, which contained a gun, stolen.
