CPD responds to shoplifting incident at Target
A man who stole a video game and an audio transmitter reportedly threatened to hurt employees if they did not get out of his way as he attempted to flee.
According to an incident report, authorities were called out just before 3 p.m. Friday regarding a shoplifting incident at Target.
Once on scene, officer Jim Pfrenger learned a bald-headed man "shoved loss prevention employees" and fled the scene in a black Nissan Rouge after stealing an Xbox One game and a FM Bluetooth audio transmitter.
After the man in question hid the two items and proceeded to walk past the cash registers, two loss prevention officers attempted to stop him, according to the report. Despite the two employees' efforts to stop the suspect, the man began threatening them and fled the scene Friday afternoon.
"Loss prevention stated while attempting to detain the male, the male stated he was going to hit the employees if they did not let him go," the incident report reads in part. "Loss prevention advised they let go of the male, and after yelling at loss prevention, ran back to a black Nissan Rouge."
Employees said they were able to collect the two items from the man before the suspect fled at a high rate of speed, according to the report.
The two items collectively totaled $69.98.
Suspect snags shoes
An unnamed suspect reportedly stole three pairs of shoes from Shoe Carnival on Friday.
A store manager called police around 5:50 p.m. Friday to file a shoplifting report after a "tall, slender white male wearing jeans, a white and blue flannel type shirt and a ball cap" fled the store with three boxes of Nike tennis shoes, according to an incident report.
The report states the manager was able to get the license plate number off the suspect vehicle but that when officers ran the tags, the license plate did not match the description the store manager provided of the suspect vehicle.
According to the report, each box of shoes was valued at approximately $100.
Former employee upset with ex-boss
A Conway man is accused of threatening to attack his ex-employer.
The Conway Police Department was called to the McDonald's on Salem Road shortly before 7:30 p.m. Friday after a former employee at the fast-food chain allegedly threatened to attack a manager at the restaurant, according to an incident report.
The restaurant manager said the suspect "had quit and come in to get his last paycheck" but that the restaurant was busy at the time Elijah LeMay stopped buy to collect his check. Instead of waiting, the 21-year-old Conway man reportedly welcomed himself behind the counter and proceeded to grab his check, the report states.
"[The manager] told him that she was required to hand him the check, and because he had already quit, he was not allowed behind the counter," the incident report reads in part. "LeMay got angry and started cursing and yelling at [the manager]. [She] stated he then told her he would [attack her]."
When the 21-year-old learned the manager planned to notify police of the incident, he left the restaurant, the report states.
