Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:
1. Motor vehicle theft at 530 Enterprise Ave. (International Paper). Victim reported that at some point between 3 p.m. Friday and 4:22 a.m. Monday someone stole a white 2006 International semi-tractor parked on the property. The truck had the logo of Wayne Smith Trucking on both sides and the number 222 on the hood. Conway police are also investigating the theft of a 2004 Freightliner semi-tractor stolen at some point between 11 a.m. and noon Saturday and the theft of two trailer-mounted shipping containers containing more than 9,000 cases of feminine hygiene products stolen at some point between 2 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday from a business on William J. Clark Drive. Maj. Bill Milburn of CPD couldn’t confirm on Tuesday that investigators believed the three thefts were related, but said that it seemed a reasonable assumption.
2. Motor vehicle theft at 400 block of Second Street. Victim reported that at some point between 9 p.m. Sunday and 11 a.m. Monday someone stole a dark blue 2005 Ford Crown Victoria with a spotlight on the front A-pillar, holes in the truck and a bullet hole in the driver’s door filled in with body filler.
3. Fist-offense DWI at 1100 block of Skyline Drive. Officers and MEMS responded at about 6:20 p.m. on Thursday to reports of a man apparently unconscious in a vehicle sitting at the intersection of Highway 64 and Highway 65 and found the driver, identified in the report as 28-year-old James Gilmore of 204 Plainview Circle, North Little Rock, who staff at a Conway TGI Friday’s restaurant had alerted police to after refusing to serve him alcohol due to what they felt to be a high level of intoxication when he entered the restaurant. Gilmore was arrested on suspicion of DWI, refusal to submit to a chemical test and careless and prohibited driving.
4. Second-offense DWI at 300 block of Mildred Street. Police responded to a vehicle accident at about 11:55 Saturday night and allegedly found the driver of one of the vehicles, identified in the report as 28-year-old William Preston Meers of 951 Paul Drive, Conway, to be intoxicated and in possession of about four grams of suspected marijuana and a smoking device. In the course of the arrest Meers registered a breath alcohol content of .22. He was arrested on suspicion of second-offense DWI, possession of an instrument of crime and careless/prohibited driving.
5. Fleeing on foot at 1100 block of Ingram Street. At about 6:40 p.m. Saturday an officer initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle that had allegedly run a stop sign and made contact with the driver, who said he didn’t have a driver’s license but gave the officer a name and date of birth. When the officer stepped back to his patrol car to check for warrants matching the name, the man fled on foot. In the course of the pursuit the officer lost his footing on muddy ground and lost sight of the suspect. The officer later notified a parole officer assigned to a man with the name and date of birth given by the suspect of the incident.
6. Commercial burglary at 1125 South Harkrider St. and 1503 Washington Ave. (Conway Auto Sales, Insta-Print). An Insta-Print worker driving past the business Wednesday afternoon noticed that someone had broken the glass from the front door, and a worker arriving at Conway Auto Sales on Friday morning noticed that someone had broken a window. A TV seemed to be missing from Conway Auto Sales. Nothing seemed to be missing from Insta-Print. In both cases the burglar left behind drops of blood which were collected as evidence.
