Suspects steal $500 worth of candles

Two women reportedly stole about $500 worth of candles from Bed Bath and Beyond on Wednesday.

The store manager called police the following day to report the alleged theft, stating he believes the suspect made off with around $500 worth of candles sometime between 2-2:30 p.m. Wednesday.

While speaking with police, the manager said she was approached by a customer who said two "slender" black females, one with red hair and the other with dark brown hair were stealing candles, making off with about 20, according to the incident report.

Conway man reports vehicle theft

A College Park Apartment reported early Thursday morning that his vehicle was stolen.

According to an incident report, the 21-year-old man suspects his roommate stole is 2006 blue Scion TC.

An officer met up with the theft victim at his apartment at 2:21 a.m., where the man told him his vehicle was taken sometime between 8 a.m. Tuesday and midnight Thursday.

When the officer asked if anyone had access to the keys to the vehicle, he said his roommate, who was currently asleep in the apartment, did. The 21-year-old told the officer he was suspicious his roommate had something to do with his vehicle's disappearance.

"He told me that he felt [his roommate] had the vehicle," officer Michael Jones wrote in his report. "He told me that a few month[s] back, he allowed [his roommate] to borrow his vehicle and [the roommate] had claimed that it was stolen from the Kum & Go then. [The victim] said that he did not know when the keys were taken and never gave [his roommate] permission to take it."

The victim also said he confronted his roommate about his vehicle's disappearance. During his conversation with his roommate, he was told that "the cops already know about the car."

Authorities are also suspicious the roommate was responsible for the theft, according to the incident report.

"Given that [the roommate] appeared to sway [the victim] from contacting police, I feel that he is probably in possession of the vehicle," the report reads.

Greenbrier man cited for driving without a license

A Greenbrier man was cited for driving without a license and for failing to pay registration fees following a Thursday morning traffic stop.

According to an incident report, 28-year-old Jordan Chris Jernigan was pulled over at 8:20 a.m. Thursday after an officer noticed the tags on the vehicle he was driving were expired.

The officer initiated a traffic stop at the intersection of Factory and Sixth streets, and Jernigan reportedly pulled over in the Conway Glass Tinting parking lot.

"I made contact with the driver, Jordan Jernigan, and advised him why I had stopped him," officer Joey Balentine wrote in his report. "He seemed surprised about the registration and asked to step out and look at the license plate. I told him that he could, but asked to see his driver's license and insurance."

Jernigan said he could not find the registration because it's his wife's vehicle and "it was very dirty." He also said he did not have his license on him. However, Jernigan did have an ID card on him.

According to the report, officer Balentine could smell "a faint odor of raw marijuana" as Jernigan searched for the vehicle's registration paperwork.

"Once Jernigan handed me the ID, he told me that he wanted to be honest with me," the incident report reads in part. "He said that he did not have a driver's license. I said to him, since we were in the business of being honest, is there any marijuana in the car. Jernigan said that there was a small amount of marijuana inside a wooden box that was in the console."

Jernigan was ultimately cited on suspicion of driving without a license and for reportedly not paying registration fees.
