Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:
•Possession of a controlled substance, Conway High School. A 15-year-old student at Conway High School was suspended Friday for 10 days following a report by a fellow student to school officials that he was in possession of suspected marijuana. The school’s assistant principal searched the student and located a clear plastic bag and a small clear bottle, each containing a green leafy substance. The assistant principal provided a voluntary statement. The student told school officials the substance was salvia, bought from an online store under the “legal high” section. The substance was submitted to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for testing. Police say criminal charges could follow pending the outcome of lab analysis.
• Sexual indecency with a child, Ash Street. An investigator with the Arkansas State Police Crimes Against Children Division contacted CPD Wednesday about a child abuse report made via hotline. The victim is listed as being a 4-year-old white female, with apparent minor injury. Her relationship to the offender is unknown, and no suspects are listed on the report.
• Forgery, College Avenue. A woman filed a report with police Wednesday about business checks possibly taken from a car in May 2012. The woman said that following the May break-in, neither her nor her husband noticed anything missing from the vehicle. When they attempted to withdraw money from a business account on Jan. 17, the account had been emptied. Bank employees told the couple that two checks written on the account totaling over $700 had been cashed by a David Byers on Jan. 11 and 12, and the balance had been drained. The couple had no information on the suspect. Police contacted the bank requesting any video surveillance images of the suspect, and the victims closed the checking account.
