Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:

• An 11-year-old female student reported to a police officer on Monday that an unknown man with gray hair, of average height and build, wearing Wrangler jeans and a plaid shirt, was photographing the girl and a group of friends near the intersection of Hubbard and Bruce Streets as they walked home from school. The girl said when the group of children started running, the man began walking in a fast pace towards them. The officer contacted the girl’s mother and advised that he would make a report of the incident and patrol the area after school in an effort to locate the suspect.

• Police were dispatched to Drake Drive on Wednesday after a mail carrier reported that he had discovered a bag of marijuana inside of a mailbox. Police made contact with the homeowner, who denied having any knowledge of the bag or its origin. Police took possession of the 5 grams of marijuana and entered it into evidence at the Conway Police Department to be destroyed.

• A 25-year-old woman contacted police on Tuesday following the receipt of several harassing text messages from a man she reported loaned her $300. The woman said the man gave the money to her about a month ago, and now wants it back. The man sent a total of 46 text messages in three hours stating that the man wanted the money back if she wasn’t going to use it. The woman reported that the man said he would "kill her," and "RIP" if she did not return the money. She told police she spoke to the man and asked him to quit contacting her, but the man continued to send text messages. The woman said she did not want to press charges against the man, but wanted a report on file. The woman was advised of the warrants process and on how to obtain a no-contact order.
