From Conway Police Department reports
Motorcycle stolen over night
A 41-year-old man reported his motorcycle was stolen last weekend.
According to an incident report, police were notified around 8:30 a.m. May 12 that a 2001 burgundy Harley Davidson Heritage Softail Classic motorcycle was stolen from the Fairways apartment complex. The vehicle owner said he got home around 6 p.m. the night before and last saw the bike outside his apartment around 9 p.m.
According to another Fairways resident, two unknown men took the motorcycle around 3 a.m.
A man who lives across the street from the victim said he “observed two males wearing black mask[s] moving the motorcycle” sometime between 2 to 3 a.m. In his statement, the 25-year-old witness said he was out on his balcony “when he observed a male in an older, beat up white pickup [turck] exit his vehicle and walk up to the bike.”
“The truck left momentarily and returned with two males both wearing black mask[s],” according to the witness’ statement.
The witness told authorities he overheard one of the suspects say, “What an idiot,” before one of them drove off on the Harley Davidson.
The responding officer attempted to gather evidence of a possible suspect off security footage. However, the apartment manager said there are no security cameras set up at the apartment complex.
Man threatens to eat others’ faces off on his way to jail
A man arrested last weekend on suspicion of public intox reportedly told officers he planned to eat someone’s face off once he got to the jail.
According to an incident report, the man became “very belligerent” and claimed Satan was going to help him out as he was taken in the back of a Conway officer’s patrol unit to the county jail around 12:45 a.m. May 12.
Authorities were reportedly called out to the Torreyson Place apartment complex regarding a 35-year-old man who “was being loud and disruptive” outside of his mother’s residence. After locating the suspect, the responding officer questioned him about why he was outside and if he had been banging on doors throughout the apartment complex.
The suspect, identified as James Heathcock, said he was outside speaking to his cousin but denied causing any disturbances in the area.
“I asked him what was going on and he stated that he was outside speaking to his cousin,” the responding officer wrote in his report. “I also asked if he had been banging on doors and he responded no, but he had been drinking.”
As the officer continued speaking with Heathcock, he noticed the man’s eyes were bloodshot and that he was unsteady on his feet. The officer also said he suspected Heathcock was drunk because his speech was slurred and he smelled strongly of alcohol.
“His appearance was very disheveled, and he was sweating profusely,” the officer noted. “I asked him if he could go inside his apartment and remain there for the rest of the night and he responded by walking to his trash can which he had kicked over to ‘think about’ the answer.”
Heathcock never gave the officer a definitive answer as to whether he would go inside and stay there for the night, according to the report.
The officer decided to arrest Heathcock on suspicion of public intoxication so that he would not continue disrupting other residents. According to the officer’s report, Heathcock became “belligerent” on the way to the jail “and was repeatedly stating ‘Satan’ would help him.”
“[I’m] going to eat someone’s face cause I’m going to jail for some bullshit,” he reportedly said to the officer.
Once at the jail, the man refused to sign his citation.
