From Conway Police Department reports

 

The angry

It was an angry person at the source of a call for a call about a disturbance at a East Robins Street mobile home community Wednesday, Oct. 4, at 11:20 p.m.

The reporting officer, with a second officer, arrived at the trailer in question, speaking with the woman who made the call. As they spoke the officer could hear a man inside the trailer screaming, “… sounding very belligerent towards whoever was inside,” the officer reported. The officer went inside. There was the woman’s husband, sister and the man who had been screaming (his name given in the report). The man was “acting very hostile toward the family,” the report stated. The officer spoke with him.

Initially the man was very upset, but after speaking with the officer for a bit he calmed down, the officer telling him he was there to help the man. He had a cut on his head, and the man told the officer he did not. The officer was able to calm the man down enough to where he agreed to have an ambulance crew come and look at him. Here the mother said the man had a brain injury from a car accident, due to which his reaction to alcohol was often unpredictable, and that the man had a drink earlier in the evening.

As all waited for the ambulance to get there, the man, 25, went through repeated mood swings, ranging from calm to hostile to angry. This included his screaming loud oaths at his family.

The officer spoke to the woman again, who said the cut on the man’s head apparently had something to do with his falling outside, and perhaps hitting his head on a part of their home’s trailer tongue.

The ambulance crew got there, and with the officer’s caution about the man’s brain injury and mood swings coupled with his having had a drink, an attendant went inside and checked him out. The man got angry and belligerent, again telling the officer there was no cut on his head. The officer got the man to calm down, the attendant began to check him out, the man got upset again, the officer calmed him down, and the attendant began to check him, the man got upset, and this pattern continued.

The attendant told the officer that they would not be able to take the man to the hospital, due to his mood swings. The officer then arrested the man for public intoxication. With some struggle, and a second officer’s help, they were able to get the man into the officer’s car.

At the jail the man was aggressive again, screaming and threatening officers. He was jailed.

Gone, found

A man called police about his grandfather’s missing car, a Nissan Cube. It was Thursday, Oct. 5 at 9:08 a.m. The reporting officer arrived.

The man told the officer when he got home at 7 a.m. his grandfather’s Cube was in the driveway. When his grandfather came out of the house to drive, however, the Cube was missing at 8:55 a.m. They thought at first it may have been borrowed, the man explained, as family members will frequently borrow the car, but they called and nobody else had it. The officer got a description of the car, including its license number and stickers on its back window.

Police checked the area but did not find the car.

Two hours later, however, the officer got a call. A second officer had found the Cube, parked in a mobile home community on Downing Court. They confirmed what there was to confirm and had the Cube towed. There was, the report noted, pieces of copper wire in the back of the car.

The trailer park manager said he first saw the car sitting where it was about 6:15 a.m.

The officer spoke with the man who reported the theft, telling him the car had been found. The timeline, he said, was something of a problem as the car was spotted about 45 minutes before it was described as being seen last. The man double-checked with his grandmother, who was leaving as he was coming home, and realized the car was already gone by then.

The copper wire was not theirs, the man said.

The officer cross-checked as another officer had reported a business’s truck had been broken into the night before. As information was being gathered, officers checked security camera footage from the theft and saw the car the thieves had used, a Nissan Cube with stickers on its back window.

Copper wire had been stolen from the company truck, among other things.

Check not

A man called police Thursday, Oct. 5 at 10:08 a.m. about being the victim of a fraud. An officer took the report

The man said he’d searched online to find a loan and found a company called Supreme Loan. He contacted the company, and got a check for $938. He deposited the check with his bank on Sept. 28. He then, he told the officer, got instructions to wire the money back to the loan company. The man said he, per instructions, went to Walmart and arranged a Moneygram transaction to send the money.

He was then told by his bank that the check had not cleared. This cost him, he told the officer, $938 plus overdraft fees.

The officer issued the man a report number.
