Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:

•Shoplifting, Skyline Drive.

Police arrested a Conway woman Wednesday afternoon for shoplifting from Walmart.

Officers responded to the store, located in the 1100 block of Skyline Drive, around 1:58 p.m. A store employee told police he witnessed a woman conceal merchandise while in the store. The woman had already been taken into custody when officers arrived, the police report states.

More than $50 in merchandise was concealed, police said.

The 19-year-old woman was transported to the Faulkner County jail, and held on a theft of property charge.

•First-degree criminal mischief, Prince Street.

A dry cleaning store on Prince Street says a catalytic convertor was recently stolen from its delivery van.

Conway police arrived at Classic Cleaners, located in the 2300 block of Prince Street, around 11:52 a.m. Wednesday. An employee told police the converter was stolen from the vehicle overnight.

The van was parked around 6 p.m. Tuesday, and remained there until a delivery driver attempted to start the vehicle around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, the employee said.

Police said a large section of the vehicle’s exhaust pipe, along with the catalytic converter, was missing and appeared to have been cut out.

No surveillance footage of the theft was captured, police said.

•Forgery, Dave Ward Drive.

A Greenbrier man says he recently discovered two unauthorized checks from his account written to Walmart in Conway.

The 37-year-old complainant said two checks — one totaling $100, and another totaling $319.05 — cleared the Walmart on Dave Ward Drive. No dates of when the checks were cleared was included in the police report.

•Public intoxication, Watkins Street.

A Conway man was arrested for public intoxication Tuesday morning after police observed the man riding a bicycle in the middle of Watkins Street.

Officers observed the 31-year-old man on a black bike around 3 a.m. Police initiated a traffic stop, because the man did not have proper lighting for nighttime riding.

Upon contact, police said the man displayed bloodshot eyes and admitted to drinking at a friend’s house prior to riding the bike. The man told police he was en route to his home on Landover Trail.

The man was taken into custody and transported to the Faulkner County jail.
