From Conway Police Department reports

Drug charges follow welfare check

A Crossett man was arrested Friday morning on drug charges after police learned he had suspected methamphetamine and a pipe in his pockets.

According to an incident report, authorities were called just after 7:20 a.m. to check on the welfare of a suspicious man who was in the gravel lot at the corner of Harkrider Street and Sturgis Road.

The man in question did not have a shirt on and was bent over as if he were searching for something when officer William Lipsmeyer arrived on scene, the report states.

Lipsmeyer soon learned the man was Brac Randall Stacy, 32, of Crossett, and that he had two outstanding warrants issued against him. After learning Randall had warrants, Lipsmeyer detained him and asked Randall if he had any contraband. According to the report, Randall admitted to having illegal items in his pockets.

Authorities located a suspected meth pipe as well as “loose white crystal like substance” in Randall’s pockets.

Later that day, police were alerted a bag with meth in it was found on Equity Road.

“Upon investigating the bag, we discovered that it belonged to Mr. Stacy,” the report reads in part.

Stacy faces two felony charges following the incident – possession of a schedule I or II controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Online records also indicate the 32-year-old is charged as a lower habitual offender and that he is scheduled to appear Aug. 20 in Faulkner County Circuit Court for a plea and arraignment hearing.

Resident reports burglary

A Crestliner Drive resident called police when he walked up to his front door Friday morning to find his home was burglarized while he was out.

The 29-year-old Conway man called the police department around 7:45 a.m. Friday immediately after finding the door trim to his front door was on the floor when he opened the door, according to an incident report. The man told officers he left for work around 6 p.m. the night before and did not walk inside after realizing his home was burglarized.

Authorities cleared the residence to ensure no one was inside the home before allowing the homeowner to walk through the home to determine what was stolen.

The homeowner noted four pairs of shoes valued collectively at $760 that were located “just inside the doorway” were missing, the report states.

A PlayStation 4 along with the homeowner’s personal documents were also gone, according to the report.

Man yells at salon employees, jailed on public intox charges

A 26-year-old Conway man was arrested Friday afternoon on a public intox charge after allegedly yelling at tanning and hair salon employees.

According to an incident report, authorities were called shortly before 12:45 p.m. Friday regarding a man who was causing a disturbance inside Palm Beach Tans on Dave Ward Drive.

Sidney Deshun Avance reportedly began “yelling he was going to kill someone at his house,” when employees called 911, the report states.

Police recognized Avance from a previous call to Hybrid Hair studio, where he allegedly yelled at one of the employees and also demanded she give him money, according to the report.

Once he got closer to Avance, officer Christopher L. Ramirez said he noticed the 26-year-old smelled strongly of alcohol.

According to the report, Avance claimed he was at the tanning salon to visit with friends. The 26-year-old also claimed he was “mental.”

“Due to Sidney’s erratic behavior and statements, and an unreasonable annoyance to two separate businesses, Sidney was arrested for public intoxication,” the incident report reads in part.

Online records show Avance is scheduled to appear Sept. 16 in Conway District Court for a plea and arraignment hearing regarding the aforementioned case.
