Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:

•First-degree criminal mischief, Mitchell Street.

A Conway woman says her vehicle was shot with a BB gun while at a friend’s house Thursday night.

Officers arrived around 7:03 p.m. to a residence in the 1300 block of Mitchell Street.

The 29-year-old complainant told police she arrived at her friend’s home around 5 p.m. She returned to her vehicle, parked in the yard around 6:40 p.m., and found damage to a window. The complainant said she believes it could have been kids who live in the area.

Police searched the area for pellets, but no mention of discovery was mentioned in the incident report.

Damage to the vehicle’s window was valued at $300.

•Commercial burglary, Salem Road.

Conway police responded Thursday morning to an alarm call at the Walgreen’s on Salem Road.

Officers arrived around 2:06 a.m. and observed a “large chunk” of a concrete rock on the sidewalk and three small marks on the front door.

A store manager arrived on scene and viewed surveillance footage. However, due to the camera being located inside the store, all that could be seen were headlights outside the store.

Damage to the door was estimated at $200.

•Theft of services, East Oak Street.

Waffle House employees say three black males ate meals and left the restaurant without paying Thursday morning.

Police responded to the 24-hour diner, located in the 800 block of East Oak Street, around 12:10 a.m.

A restaurant cook told police one of the black males walked out, while the other two perpetrators ran in the direction of the nearby Golden Corral.

The cook described one of the black males as heavy set and wearing purple pants and a blue hat or beanie. No description was given for the other two suspects.

According to the police report, the trio’s unpaid meal tickets totaled $37.04.
