3 Arrested in Conway Car Break-Ins

Neighborhoods all around the city of Conway rang in the New Year with car break-ins.
CONWAY, AR -- Conway Police have made three arrests including two juveniles in connection with a string of car theft and break-ins.

Police found the three suspects in a stolen car along with thousands of dollars worth in stolen property.

Neighborhoods all around the city of Conway rang in the New Year with car break-ins. They've seemed to plague the area in the last week.

Conway Police say thieves actually stole one of the cars right in front of Jordan Snoderly's home on South Mitchell.

He and his girlfriend came home late Sunday night to find her Kia Soul missing.

"I was just in disbelief," Jordan said. "Her car was gone."

Luckily, the next morning an officer spotted the stolen vehicle just two and half miles away. Inside was Angelo Neal, 18, and two other juveniles aged 16 and 17.

The suspect and two juveniles face three counts of felony charges including theft of property and breaking/entering.

Officers made the initial traffic stop after the suspects ran a red light.

As it turns out police say this car wasn't the only one involved in a breaking and entering.

"It is pretty crazy especially cause a few cars got broken into in the neighborhood alone," Jordan remarked.

Several car break-ins happened, police say, at the hands of Neal and the juveniles.

A page and a half list shows the thousands of dollars worth stolen that night.

"Those items were found in the stolen vehicle along with the three suspects," explained Public Information Officer for the Conway Police Department, LaTresha Woodruff.

Conway Police want to keep this from happening but they say the community could help which would all bring back more sense of safety in these neighborhoods.

"Making sure their doors are locked and just kinda taking a little bit of personal responsibility along with us patrolling and doing our jobs," Woodruff added.
