The Conway Police Department is asking residents to remember to lock their car doors at all times, even when parked in a driveway at home. Also, police ask that residents not store valuables in their cars, or at least keep them out of plain sight.
The department released a statement Wednesday saying police arrested two teen girls on Sunday near the Cinemark on Skyline Drive after a witness saw them pulling on door handles of cars, getting into vehicles and taking things.
The 16-year-olds told officers they had been riding around the area, got bored and decided to break into cars. They turned over the stolen items which included money, cigarettes, a wallet and a phone charger. Police returned the items to their owners. The Conway Police Department says this incident should serve as a reminder to the public to lock car doors, as the girls only got into cars that they found unlocked.
