From Conway Police Department reports
Suspect takes TVs
An unnamed suspect reportedly stole three TVs from the Walmart on Skyline Drive early Thursday morning.
According to an incident report, an employee contacted the Conway Police Department at 1:01 a.m. Thursday after a black man left the store with three 40-inch, Sanyo flat screen TVs without paying for the electronics.
The assistant manager who called police said it was unknown what vehicle the suspect fled the parking lot in, according to the report.
Teen high on 'meth or bath salts' complains about rats
A De Queen teen believed to be under the influence of a stimulant was arrested early Thursday morning after claiming rats were after him and throwing items inside a Kum & Go gas station.
A clerk at the Kum & Go gas station on Prince Street called 911 around 1:10 a.m. Thursday after a customer began yelling about rats he believed were inside the store and began throwing items across the business, according to an incident report.
The clerk reportedly told 18-year-old Isaac Mendez to calm down and stop yelling as the teen began screaming about rats he said were crawling about inside and outside of the business when Mendez "grabbed a camp size propane bottle from inside and threw it across the store."
Officer Jason Case arrived on scene about five minutes after the 31-year-old clerk called police and found the suspect standing outside, swinging a long-handled squeegee that he said he was using to fend off rats.
"He was yelling about rats being everywhere and [said] I needed to watch out," Case wrote in his report. "I asked him to put down the squeegee and he stated they (the rats) were hiding about about to jump out and get us. [Mendez] stated there were dead bodies everywhere in the parking lot and we were next. [He] was visibly nervous and jumpy."
Following a brief negotiation with the 18-year-old, officer Case was able to get Mendez to put down the squeegee and also put his hands behind his back.
Once the De Queen teen was detained, Case arrested him on suspicion of public intoxication due to "his erratic and dangerous behavior" and also because he believed the teen "was under the influence of meth or bath salts," according to the report.
While headed to the Faulkner County Detention Center, the 18-year-old "began screaming that [rats] were eating his legs" and "slumped over like he was dead" by the time they arrived at the county jail.
"After a little [shake], Isaac came to and walked inside the jail," the report states.

According to the report, the complainant did not tell immediately tell St. Andrews staff about the incident "because she wanted to protect her sister and she didn't want her to get into trouble."
