From Conway Police Department reports

Unknown suspect keys car

A Conway woman called police Friday evening after learning someone keyed her car while she was at work.

The 27-year-old complainant told officer Carson Howard that the damages were caused sometime between 1-5 p.m. Friday, according to an incident report.

As she walked to her red 2009 Toyota Corolla after work on the day in question, the report states the complainant found an “X” was scratched into one of the passenger doors.

According to her complaint, the woman was unsure of who would key her vehicle but thought one of her patients could be responsible for the damages.

“She thinks that it may have been a patient from work, but with no cameras in the parking lot, she was uncertain who may have cause the damages,” Howard wrote in his report.

At the time the report was filed, damages were estimated at $300.

Woman in wheelchair accused of stealing from Kroger

A 40-year-old Conway woman is facing a theft of property charge after allegedly stealing groceries from the Kroger on Oak Street.

According to an incident report, a manager at the store called police around 1:30 p.m. Saturday regarding a woman who allegedly hid items in a blanket and tried to flee the store.

The store manager told police the suspect, Amanda Grayson, had the items in question in her lap when she “pushed her wheel chair past the registers and into the parking lot.” When confronted about the theft, Grayson reportedly “unwrapped the blanket causing the items to fall onto the ground.”

When questioned about the incident, the report states Grayson claimed she did purchase all the items she had but that she could not show authorities a receipt for the items because she thrown the receipt away. The woman also claimed she did not have any bags to carry her items in because she did not need them.

“Grayson advised she purchased the items, and then threw the receipt away. I asked why she did not have any Kroger bags, and she stated she did not need them,” the incident report reads in part. “I then asked how she paid for the items and Grayson stated she had exact cash.”

Authorities, at the manager’s request, ultimately banned the 40-year-old woman from the store and also charged her with theft of property.

Due to her disability, she was not arrested but instead given a citation and court date.

Items that were damaged included a TV, a mattress, a wall, a lamp and the air conditioning unit, the report states.
