Thieves target vehicles near Conway trail

Thieves target vehicles near Conway trail


CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - If you happen to walk, jog or bike, you may need to watch out the next time you leave your car to work out. The Conway Police Department continues to get reports of car break-ins in parking lots near the Tucker Creek Trail.

Two break-ins happened days apart, and the thieves took cash and debit cards and a gun that was left behind in one of the cars. Police told THV it is where the keys were that made these break-ins a piece of cake for criminals.

Once Deidra Maltbia locks her car, she wishes she could forget about it, but because of recent car break-ins in the parking lots near the Tucker Creek Trail, she cannot.

"I do not leave anything in my car," said Maltbia. "I do not trust anybody."

She also takes her keys with her. Other runners now holding on tight too.
