Police Beat 6/24/14: The disappearing pizza thief

LOG CABIN DEMOCRAT

Among the incidents recently reported by the Conway Police Department:

Breaking or entering on South Ash Street

A delivery driver for Domino’s Pizza flagged down a police officer who was driving by to report someone had broken into her car while she was delivering two pizzas. The woman who answered the door wanted to pay with a credit card, and so the driver had to go back to her car and left the pizzas with the woman at the door. At her car, the driver discovered her phone and wallet had been taken. When she got back, the door was locked and no one would answer it. Police entered the apartment and found it empty, but the description the driver gave matched a woman the police knew lived next door. They got permission to search the residence next door and found two warm pizzas in a closet. The driver saw the woman who lived at the second apartment but said it was not the woman who took the pizzas.

Aggravated robbery at 100 Vine St.

A Conway couple reported Monday that they were driving east on Vine Street when they stopped at a stop sign on Third Avenue.
