Woman says ex-boyfriend damaged apartment
A 38-year-old woman contacted police after her ex-boyfriend allegedly kicked in her door Thursday.
The woman, who lives in the 1200 block of Woodside Drive, told authorities on Friday that her ex-boyfriend, 36-year-old Jerome Marks, kicked in the door to her apartment the night before.
She said she left the apartment as soon as he fled the area in his car and now needed a police report for her landlord.
The responding officer took photos of the door frame and some drywall that was damaged during the alleged incident to attach to the report before leaving the scene.
CFD call police to trailer blaze
The Conway Fire Department called Conway police out to a fire in the Oakwood Village Trailer Park on Friday after two women said they believed the homeowner set fire to the trailer before they could move in.
The two women told authorities they recently purchased the trailer on Lot 34 but that the current homeowner continued postponing their move-in date. Their move-in date bounced around from April 28 to June 1, when they were finally allowed to move their belongings into the home. However, when the two complainants arrived, the home was engulfed in flames, according to an incident report.
"[One of the women] said when they arrived, the trailer was on fire, and they felt like [the homeowner] set fire to her own house to keep them from moving in," the incident report reads in part. "[The complainant] said she hadn't been able to make contact with [the homeowner] since they arrived."
Firefighters on scene said they believed the fire was sparked accidentally, "but they took samples due to the suspicious circumstances."
As authorities spoke with the complainants, the homeowner arrived on scene.
"She advised she was away feeding [a] friend's dogs," the incident report reads. "[The woman] said she wasn't trying to keep [the women] out of the house, but she had gotten sick and was unable to physically move things without help and help was difficult for her to secure."
The complainants said they wanted their money back from the homeowner, but did not get a clear answer from the woman when they asked for the refund.
"[The woman] said she would speak to her attorney about the matter," the report reads.
A 38-year-old man reported his bike was stolen on Friday.
According to an incident report, authorities were called out shortly after noon on Friday to the Kroger on Oak Street to take the theft report. While on scene, the complainant told officers he'd left his bicycle unattended at the front of the store and that when he returned, his bicycle was gone.
Police searched the nearby area for a bicycle matching the man's description. However, according to an incident report, authorities were unable to locate the stolen bike.
Officer arrests man with felony warrant
Authorities arrested a 35-year-old man with a felony warrant outside of the America's Best Value Inn on Friday.
According to an incident report, an officer was patrolling near the motel shortly after noon on Friday when he saw Zachary Hill, who had an active felony warrant out of the Arkansas Parole Board.
After confirming the man was Hill, the officer cuffed the suspect and asked if he had anything illegal on him. Hill, who has an active search waiver on file, admitted to having a glass pipe in his pocket as well as other pipes hidden in a shoe in his motel room.
Authorities located the pipes as well as small baggies with suspected methamphetamine residue in them. Hill was arrested and taken to the county jail following the incident.
