Storage units pillaged — Police asking for victims to come forward

Posted: August 14, 2014 - 3:43pm

A Conway self-storage facility was pillaged, maybe over the course of two weeks, according to Conway Police Department incident reports released on Thursday.

Between July 28 and Tuesday, a thief or thieves got into 10 units at U-Save Storage at 2320 Stout Street and cleaned them out. La Tresha Woodruff, CPD’s spokesperson, said that whoever was responsible seems to have been cutting locks and replacing them with their own, allowing them to come back and steal from the storage units later.

At the time the reports were written on Tuesday, management at the storage unit hadn’t been able to provide a list of victims who had their property taken, Woodruff said. Only one of the 10 reports lists a victim and describes the stolen property: A man who had a Wilderness Systems kayak and about $2,000 worth of clothes stolen from his storage unit. 

In October, 2011 a thief or thieves got into 20 storage units at U-Save Storage. “The management at the storage facility have had trouble getting in contact with some of their customers, so the extent of the thefts is not known at this time,” Woodruff told the Log Cabin then, and anyone who had something stolen from the units was urged to get in touch with CPD and provide a list of what was taken.

CPD is again asking anyone with stolen property to contact CPD, and Woodruff advised anyone with a storage unit there to check on it.

Yes, Stout Street. The story

Yes, Stout Street. The story did incorrectly say South Street before I changed it. That might have been an autocorrect error…

bad recordkeeping

Sounds to me like U-Save Storage needs better bookkeeping; why didn't they learn that from the 2011 break-ins when they couldn't contact some of their customers? I just find it strange, don't these people pay monthly fees and don't they bill them?
