Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:
• A caller at Rosemary Drive contacted police in reference to a stolen television around 3 p.m. Sunday following a residential burglary. According to the report, the man and a roommate left the home around midnight Sunday and upon returning on Sunday afternoon, discovered that pry marks on the front door of the home. Missing from the residence was a 42" LED TV, which had been taken from his bedroom. A flatscreen television, laptop, Xbox and other items in the living room area remained undisturbed. The man told police he believed a neighbor had watched them leave the home and was responsible for the burglary. Police checked surrounding residences for signs of forced entry, but found that no other homes had been disturbed. Police located wet footprints leading to a neighboring door, but were not able to locate any usable fingerprints inside of the home. The man was provided with an incident number and the investigation is ongoing.
• A 16-year-old female contacted police on Monday to report a series of early-morning harassing texts she received on Saturday. The girl said she received the texts beginning at 7:30 a.m. from a person posing as a male senior at the high school. According to the report, the messenger was requesting that she engage in sexual contact. After denying the request, the girl received messages asking for other favors. She repeatedly told the messenger "no," but they continued to send messages, offering $500 for sexual contact or $250 for "a description" of certain parts of her body. The messages reportedly stopped around 9:45 a.m. Police advised the girl to inform her parents of the situation and instructed her to report any other messages.
• An employee at a local medical supply company called police on Thursday to report that unknown person(s) had stolen a company delivery van. According to the report, the man stated the van was parked at the business on Nabco Drive at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday. The man noticed the van missing around 7 a.m. on Thursday. The man advised the vehicle had not been repossessed because the lien had been released in 2011. He further advised that all of the vehicle’s keys were accounted for and he had no knowledge of any possible suspects. The van was entered into ACIC as stolen. The employee contacted police later Thursday afternoon to report they had found the van at lunchtime hidden behind another local business. The man said the vehicle was not damaged and was locked, and that the ignition had not been tampered with. The man told police he believed that a delivery driver or another employee possibly hid the vehicle "as a joke." The man said he would contact police if he discovered anything to be a criminal offense, otherwise they would handle the matter internally. The vehicle was deleted from ACIC and the case was marked "unfounded."
