CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - Arrests have been made in regards to the string of vehicle break-ins that occurred in Conway during the month of March. 

Spencer Johnson and Jacob Reza are being investigated for their involvement in the break-ins. According to detectives, the two 19-year-old boys could be responsible for most of the 70 car break-ins that were reported in March. 

The pair was taken into custody after police received a call about trespassers on Duncan Street Wednesday night. Police later discovered that Johnson and Reza were in possession of a car that was reported stolen from Hendrix College. Reports state that during questioning, the men admitted to breaking into unlocked cars and taking anything they could put into a backpack or their pockets. Johnson and Reza stated that they traded the stolen property for drugs.

Exxon Mobil subsidiaries to pay nearly $5M for oil spill

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Justice Department says two subsidiaries of Exxon Mobil have agreed to pay almost $5 million in government penalties from a 2013 oil spill in a central Arkansas community.

As part of a consent decree set to be filed in a Little Rock federal court Wednesday, the companies would pay about $3.2 million in federal civil penalties in addition to addressing pipeline safety issues and oil-response capacity. They would pay $1 million in state civil penalties, $600,000 for a project to improve water quality at Lake Conway and $280,000 for the state's legal costs.

Assistant Attorney General John Cruden notes that Exxon Mobil doesn't admit liability in agreeing to the measures.

UCA professor promotes new book with 12-foot-long alligator gar

CONWAY, Ark. (UCA) - Fish-writer and University of Central Arkansas writing professor Mark Spitzer is driving around Arkansas with a 12-foot-long alligator gar on top of his car to promote his new book, Return of the Gar, just out from the University of North Texas Press.

The last stop on his statewide tour will be at Hastings Books and Music in Conway on Saturday, May 9, from 1-3 p.m. Return of the Gar continues the conservationist crusade Spitzer began 13 years ago to de-stigmatize this monstrous-looking prehistoric fish. Alligator gar, the largest member of the gar family, can grow 11 feet long and weigh more than 300 pounds ― and they’re right here in Arkansas.
