From Conway Police Department reports
Gas station graffiti
An unknown suspect reportedly vandalized several gas pumps at the Mapco Express on Dave Ward Drive last week.
According to an incident report, a manager at the gas station called police shortly after 9:30 p.m. Friday after "an unidentified white male arrived and began damaging the gas pumps before leaving the area in an unknown vehicle."
Officer Don C. Newton Jr. arrived at the gas station two minutes after receiving the call and found at least four spots that were "tagged" in permanent marker. Each "tag" read "KNOE."
Other than the tag, Newton said he did not see "any real damage."
The store manager said he was able to remove the graffiti with WD-40.
According to the report, "the business suffered a substantial inconvenience as a result of the incident instead of incurring of any damage to the property," making criminal mischief charges most viable.
Homeless man pees on hospital floor, jailed
A local homeless man with a suspected crack cocaine pipe in one of his socks was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication late Friday after peeing on a hospital floor.
Conway officers were called to Conway Regional Medical Center shortly before midnight Friday regarding "an intoxicated person" who had been cleared by emergency room staff but was refusing to leave the hospital, according to an incident report.
Joe Stewart, 60, reportedly was evaluated and cleared by staff but was intoxicated and refusing to leave, according to medical staff.
Authorities located the 60-year-old still in one of the examination rooms. Just before they walked into the room to find Stewart lying on the hospital bed, staff members warned officers Matthew Boyd and Colton Thomas that the 60-year-old had urinated on the floor, according to Thomas' report.
"Stewart had a strong odor of intoxicants coming from his person, very slurred speech, and once was standing was very unsteady and had to be helped when he walked," the incident report reads in part.
According to the report, officers also found a broken glass pipe in Stewart's left sock.
"The pipe was straight and had burn marks on it," the report reads. "Inside the pipe, there was residue and some type of filter which was burnt. It is suspected that it was used to smoke crack cocaine."
Records show Stewart was charged on suspicion of public intoxication and possession of drug paraphernalia and taken to the county jail following the incident.
Volunteer reports theft
A woman called police Saturday after an unknown suspect reportedly stole her son's iPad and wireless headphones while he was helping out with the food pantry.
According to an incident report, the 66-year-old complainant's son set down his Gen 3 iPad and a set of wireless headphones next to a sink in the foyer around 11:20 a.m. and that she noticed the items were missing at around 11:45 a.m.
The woman told police she looked all through the church — Saint Peter's Episcopal Church — on Mitchell Street but was unable to find her son's missing belongings.
Officer Mike Fuentes noted in his report there were no cameras at the church to help pinpoint the suspect and asked the woman to contact authorities when she was able to find out what the serial number for the iPad was.
