Reports of vehicle break-ins and residential burglaries continue to filter in to the Conway Police Department.

On Friday, at least four more vehicle break-ins and three burglaries were reported to Conway officers.

In the four vehicle break-ins, more than $5,800 in property was stolen and almost $500 in damage was reported. According to the incident reports, only one listed vehicle damage, while all others stated there were no signs of forced entry.

Conway police received two reports of vehicle break-ins on Morse Drive on Wednesday afternoon. In the thefts, more than $5,500 worth of property was stolen, however, no signs of forced entry were found in either case.

On Thursday, officers responded to two more vehicle break-ins, including one where police say it appeared the victim’s vehicle was hit several times with a hammer to gain entrance. The victim told police he had been on vacation for several days, and last used his vehicle Christmas Day.

Officers also responded to three burglaries on Thursday, which resulted in $6,800 worth of stolen property and $1,450 in damage.

Police first responded to a burglary at The Links at Cadron Valley in the 3400 block of Irby Drive around 2:47 a.m. The 27-year-old victim told police he had been out of town since Dec. 23, and returned home Thursday to discover his front door kicked in, and thousands of dollars worth of property missing. The burglary is at least the third officers have responded to at the apartment complex since Christmas Eve.

Around 3:27 a.m., police responded to another burglary report in the 4000 block of Glenwood Drive.

The 22-year-old victim told police he was investigating a loud noise when he was met by a black male on the stairs of his apartment.

The victim said he chased the man — described as medium tone, approximately 5-foot-7 and 150 pounds — almost 20 feet. The man was said to have continued south on to Cumulus Drive, according to the victim.

Hours later, officers were dispatched to two breaking and entering reports at Glenwood Town Homes in the 1200 block of Cumulus Drive.

The property manager said a cleaning lady discovered two apartments in the complex, which were locked, were forcefully entered. Damage to each apartment’s door frame was estimated at $300. No residents were listed for either apartment.

Around 1:56 a.m., officers discovered the garage door of a storage unit at The Pointe at Conway, located in the 2000 block of Rich Smith Lane, that appeared to have been forced open.

Officers were able to obtain half of a latent fingerprint at the scene. Damage to the storage unit was estimated at $500, and $2,000 worth of property was said to be missing, according to the police report.

Around 12:17 p.m., Conway police responded to another burglary in the 800 block of Donaghey Avenue.

The 37-year-old victim told police he does not currently live in the home, but discovered around noon Thursday that the residence was entered and electrical wiring was stolen. According to police, the thief or thieves removed sheet rock to access the wiring. Damage to the home was estimated at $1,000, and stolen wiring was valued at $1,000.

No signs of forced entry were located, and no fingerprints were obtained, police said.

Training

I guess some of the CPD Officers haven't taken Joe Taylor's crime prevention classes. He speaks of training the deputies with crime prevention techniques to lower the crime rate when he gets elected Faulkner County Sheriff. I can't imagine how crime would be without the training he has already provided. -Yes I meant this sarcastically-

The truth us, police don't

The truth us, police don't deter crime, unless by their presence alone. Perhaps these areas need increased patrols, so the perps will take their "skills" to another part of town.

The key to deterring crime, from the police perspective, is making a habit of catching the bad guy and recovering stolen property if possible. Unlike CPD has been sort of able to do, FCSO has not been able to accomplish that goal.

Hogan is a shill for Shock

Lee hogan has made it plainly clear through his "journalism" (that was also meant to be sarcastic) that he's just one of Andy's boys. At least the Conway PD makes arrests on these cases. How many arrests for breaking and entering or theft of property has the FCSO made? Lee Hogan, the whole county, not to mention almost all of your coworkers, have long ago realized your man crush on Shock. I hate to be the one to call you out on it, but its beginning to make you look a little pathetic.

Top ten stories of the year my butt

It seems that the Log Cabin FCSO unofficial mouthpiece forgot all about the jailbreak and the woman who was brutally beaten by the escapees in their version of "Andy Shock's selection of the top ten stories of the year". Surprise, surprise! You can bet your bottom dollar that if it had'nt have made the TV news that the editor and chief of this "newspaper", Andy Shock, wouldn't have even mentioned it. Way to go guys! You have served your master well! What exactly has Andy got on y'all?
