Posted: June 19, 2014 - 11:09am

Among the incidents recently reported by the Conway Police Department:

• Theft at the 1800 block of Simms Street

A resident reported Wednesday that he rode his bike home from work for lunch and parked it outside and, when he came back out an hour later, his bike was gone. It was a Diamondback bicycle valued at $200.

• Theft by deception

A Conway woman reported Wednesday that she had responded to an online ad for a Siberian Husky for sale and fallen victim to fraud. The original price of the dog, located in Baltimore, Md., was listed as $200, but once the agreed-upon price was paid, more fees surfaced. The woman became suspicious when the total reached nearly $2,000. The dog was supposedly shipped to Fort Smith instead of Little Rock as agreed, and then she was asked to pay more money to get the dog, she reported. The woman turned over all correspondence between herself and the seller to police.

• Residential burglary at the 2800 block of Dave Ward Drive

A Conway man reported Wednesday that someone broke into his residence and stole a 30-pack of beer, a bottle of tequila, a box of wine, $60 in change and a suitcase. Total value was $151.

• Criminal mischief at the 300 block of Mitchell Street

A resident reported Wednesday that someone damaged her green city trash can. It was lying in the front yard with its wheels removed and the lid torn off.

• Residential burglary on Garden Walk Lane

A homeowner reported Saturday that someone apparently tried to break into her home. There was a dirty footprint on the front door, and the door frame was destroyed. Damage was estimated at $500.
