Five more Conway residents reported their vehicles were broken into, entered or sustained damage to windows, according to incident reports released by the Conway Police Department on Thursday.

In all, $1,304 in stolen property and $300 in vehicle damage was reported, according to the reports.

Officers responded to the 1800 block of Lucille Street around 10:03 p.m. Wednesday after a resident there found damage to her vehicle’s window.

The 55-year-old victim said she was alerted of the damage by a neighbor. Police said the window damage appeared to have been caused by a small rock or pellet. Officers said the window was “mostly intact,” but “severely shattered.”

No entry into the vehicle appeared to have been attempted, and the damaging object was not found in the vehicle, police said.

Damage to the vehicle, a 2000 Dodge Caravan, was estimated at $200.

Around 7:53 a.m., officers responded to reports of another broken vehicle window in the 400 block of South Donaghey Avenue.

The 37-year-old victim said he did not notice any items missing. Damage to the window was estimated at $100.

Between 8:42 p.m. Tuesday and 6:47 p.m. Wednesday, Conway police also responded to at least three vehicle break-ins, according to incident reports.

On Wednesday afternoon, a Conway resident in the 1600 block of Angeline Drive told police his wife’s vehicle was entered and more than $1,000 in property was stolen.

The 28-year-old man said he and his wife arrived home around 5:30 p.m., and left the vehicle unlocked. The couple returned to the vehicle around 6:15 p.m. and discovered the vehicle had been entered and the wife’s purse was missing.

According to the couple, the purse contained $600 in gift cards, two $200 checks, and other personal items.

No damage to the vehicle was found, the police report states.

Around 6:02 a.m. Wednesday, a 17-year-old Little Rock girl reported another vehicle breaking or entering to Conway police.

The minor told officers she was with friends Tuesday night at a party in the 2400 block of Morse Drive, and left her purse in a friend’s trunk.

Around midnight, the teen said her friend noticed all purses, once located in the trunk, were missing.

The teen told police she believed the car had been locked.

The total amount of stolen property was estimated at $231 in the police report.

Around 8:42 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to another vehicle breaking or entering in the 300 block of Radcliffe Drive.

The 26-year-old victim told police two of his vehicle were entered. Officers were unable to find any signs of forced entry.

The victim said his wallet, which was apparently stolen from one of the vehicles, was found at a nearby house with all contents. According to the victim, all that appeared to be missing was approximately $3 in change.

On Thursday, the Conway Police Department said three teens were arrested in connection with a series of vehicle break-ins reported Monday night.
