Police say this photo shows property stolen in a recent string of vehicle break-ins that was recovered from a stolen vehicle stopped earlier this week. Three teens were arrested.

Three teenagers have been arrested in connection with a series of vehicle break-ins.

According to information released today, on Monday an officer noticed the teens riding in a white Kia that had been reported stolen on Sunday. The officer stopped the vehicle for failing to stop at a stoplight, “immediately noticed” the personalized license plate of the vehicle and “advised dispatch of my location and that I was out with a stolen vehicle,” this officer wrote in his incident report.

Several other officers arrived and the three teens were arrested without incident, according to this report. In the vehicle were black gloves, flashlights and “tools commonly used to break into vehicles,” and several purses, bags and backpacks.

Also in the vehicle were bottles of rum and vodka and some beer. Based on what was in the vehicle, the officer found probable cause to arrest them on suspicion of motor vehicle theft, breaking and entering and theft of property from a vehicle.

The oldest suspect arrested is 18-year-old Angelo A. Neal of Conway. The other two, 17 and 16, are also from Conway.

Great job done by this officer! Hopefully our justice system can follow-through and keep these parasites out of our hair.

Conway a a big town

Anytime a city gets as large as Conway has, petty theft is going to be somewhat of a problem. If the economy is bad, the thieving gets worse. There is always a correlation between the two.

Great job!

This officer did a great job! Due to his actions, a lot of victims were able to get their property back.

Breaking and/or Entering into vehicles is a crime of opportunity. Most criminals aren't going to break into vehicles on the hunch that something "might" be in the vehicle. They usually look in the windows and see the items people leave in plain view.

I wish we could leave whatever we want in our vehicles, but sadly enough, there are people in this society that do not let this happen.

Must have read round about not red light ...

You mean they went around the roundabout too fast. Surely! We still have red lights in this town left after Tab? The budget went belly up after Tab vowed to be the roundabout architectural consultant after his last mayoral term. He can show you any style you could imagine in one town. No wonder the street dept guys said all their machines know how to do is go in circles...Good job CPD!
