CPD investigating burglary at storage unit facility

Officials with the Conway Police Department are investigating a burglary that occurred at Highway 365 Self Storage, located at 1555 South Highway 365, on Monday. 

According to police reports from the incident, the manager of the facility reported that she arrived at work to find that seven units had been burglarized. The report also notes that the suspects used “some type of tool to cut the locks off the hinges” and gain entry to the units.

At the time the reports were filed on Monday, an inventory of what was stolen was not available because the staff of the facility were still trying to contact the customers who rent the storage units.

One customer was able to tell the investigators that a 32-inch Emerson flat screen television set had been taken from her unit as well as a box spring and mattress and a “DJ” stereo system to include two large speakers and a turntable/mixer.

According to the reports, units 191, 154, 194, 300, 302, 305 and 306 had been broken into. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the Conway Police Department at 450-6120 or to text a tip to 274637 (CRIMES) using keyword Conway.
