Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:
•Shoplifting, Skyline Drive.
Police arrested a North Little Rock woman for theft of property after Walmart staff told officer the 24-year-old stole merchandise from the store Thursday afternoon.

•Theft of property, Willow Street.
A Conway woman says a woman she allowed to use her trailer around one month ago has not returned it.
The 47-year-old victim says she loaned the trailer to a black female, whose name she could not remember, for her to use for one day. Since loaning out the trailer, the victim says she has been unable to make contact with the woman.
The victim described the trailer as homemade and black in color.
The trailer was entered as stolen, and the victim was advised to alert police if she remembered the woman’s name.
•Theft of property, Village Commons Drive.
A Conway woman says she has been duped out of $1,150 by a supposed Publisher’s Clearing House worker.
The 69-year-old victim told police she was contacted by a man named “Michael Henderson” who claimed to be with the company. Henderson told the victim she was the winner of a second-place prize and needed to send him processing fees to claim her $1.5 million prize, and a new Mercedes-Benz.
The victim told Henderson that she was on a fixed income, but Henderson “insisted that she send him money to cover the processing fees,” the police report states. The victim told police she sent the man $1,150, via Green Dot MoneyPak cards, in the West Indies.
The victim said she believed Henderson because, “he swore to God and she didn’t think people would do that if they didn’t mean it,” the police report states.
•Fraudulent use of a credit card, East German Lane.
A Conway woman says her debit card was stolen Wednesday, and was used in more than $400 worth of unauthorized charges in Conway.
The 39-year-old woman says the theft occurred while she was at Harp’s.
The victim, who has since cancelled her card, told police she has an idea of who the thief might have been, but had no evidence to support her claim.
