Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:

•First-degree criminal mischief, Oaklawn Drive.

A Conway resident in the 100 block of Oaklawn Drive says one of the windows of his van was broken while he was mowing his lawn.

The 54-year-old victim told police he was mowing and cleaning in the back yard when he heard a noise that sounded like breaking glass from the front of his residence.

The victim found the rear, driver’s-side window of his van broken, the police report states.

Police say the window appeared to have been broken by a red cinder block. The victim told police he did not see anyone when he came to the front of his home.

Damage to the vehicle was estimated at $400 in the police report.

•Vehicle break-in, West Street.

A resident in the 2200 block of West Street says her vehicle was broken into sometime between Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

The victim reported $32 cash and four Wild River Country tickets missing from her vehicle.

The victim told police that she parked her car around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, and discovered her door open when she went outside around 11:50 a.m. Thursday.

Police say the victim said her car was left unlocked. The total amount of stolen property was valued at $152 in the police report.

•First-degree criminal mischief, Equity Avenue.

A Conway man says his ex-wife poured powder and pickle juice in his vehicle while it was parked outside his work place in the 700 block of Equity Avenue.

The victim said he and his ex-wife separated in 2010, and their divorce was made final sometime last year, but since then he has had several incidents with her.

The 45-year-old victim told police his ex-wife had scratched his vehicle with keys, cut him with a box cutter, and broken windows and appliances at his residence. The victim said he had not filed reports, because his ex-wife has custody of their daughter, and he did not want his daughter to be there if her mother got in trouble.

The victim said he and a co-worker observed his ex-wife’s vehicle leaving his work place Monday, and found powder and pickle juice poured inside it. The victim told police he forgot to lock the doors to his vehicle that day.

The victim said his ex-wife also calls him and his current girlfriend, and yells obscenities at them, despite them repeatedly asking her to stop.

Police advised the victim of the warrant process.

•Vehicle break-in, Rich Smith Lane.

A Conway woman said her purse was stolen from her vehicle when it was broken into sometime Wednesday afternoon in front of her residence in the 2000 block of Rich Smith Lane.

The 83-year-old victim told police the break-in occurred sometime between 3:30 and 6 p.m. The victim’s purse and its contents were stolen, the police report states.

The victim told police all four windows of her vehicle were "slightly rolled down." Police noticed no signs of forced entry.
