From Conway Police Department reports

Textbook update

On Aug. 27, a manager at Textbook Brokers contacted the police department to report a man had attempted to sell the books and access code that were reported stolen earlier this week.

Officers went to the store and spoke with the manager.

The manager told officers that around 9 a.m. a man reached out to them on their website asking how much he could get for some books and an access code.

“The books he listed to them were the same ones that [the victim] had stolen from him,” an officer wrote in the report.

In addition to filing a police report, the victim had contacted the area textbook stores to alert them of the theft in case someone tried to resell the books.

Around 3 p.m., the man brought the books and access code into Textbook Brokers, where the manager gathered his information.

“[He] left before selling the books,” the manager reported. “[He] left the access code sitting on the counter.”

The manager provided police with the man’s information and a printout of the online conversation.
