From Conway Police Department reports
A woman who was unhappy with her meal at Playa Azul on Wednesday reported the dining experience to Conway police.
The 25-year-old woman told Conway police she took her girlfriend out to eat at Playa Azul on Wednesday afternoon but was forced to pay for more meals than she believed she was required to.
According to an incident report, after the women received their meals, the victim reportedly informed the server “she did not like [her] meal and wanted a different meal.”
“The waiter … stated that would be fine and brought her another meal,” according to her statement.
The woman said that from there, everything was fine, until she received her bill. The bill included three meals, “rather than the two she had eaten.”
According to her statement, the woman spoke with a manager at the restaurant, who told her she was responsible for paying for each meal that was prepared. Brooks said she felt this incident qualified as a theft of services and decided to contact authorities.
A Conway resident told officers last week that she fell victim to a tax scam.
The 56-year-old woman said she received a call shortly after 10 a.m. Thursday from a man claiming to be with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The victim said she was told an arrest warrant was issued against her because she owed the IRS nearly $7,000.
“[The victim] stated that [the suspect] told her there was a miscalculation on her taxes from 2011-2016 and that she still owed $6,950,” the incident report reads.
The woman said the caller said there were four outstanding allegations against her and that it would cost $14,050 to have the allegations dropped and prevent her funds from freezing. The suspect allegedly told her that after two days, she would receive a full refund of the $14,050. However, if she did not comply, she faced five years in federal prison.
According to the incident report, the woman was instructed to pick up gift cards from Walmart, Best Buy and Target and then to immediately send over the card numbers to the suspect.
The woman told officers that she did not provide the suspect with any of her account numbers, “only the numbers of the gift cards.”
The responding officer told the woman to contact her credit union and fill them in on the situation so that she could get identity theft protection services. Each of the gift card numbers were collected on scene as evidence.
A 35-year-old resident at the Fairways apartments reported to Conway police on Thursday that someone had keyed obscenities into his car.
The resident said he went to walk his dog outside shortly after 8:30 p.m. Thursday, when he noticed someone had keyed both the driver and passenger side’s of his 2012 black Dodge Challenger. He also found someone had scratched obscenities into his car as well.
The victim said he was unsure who was behind the incident, but that he suspected one of his girlfriend’s coworkers.
“[He] stated that his girlfriend has been having problems with coworkers and that he had some words with a guy … about a week ago, but does not know for sure who did this,” the report reads.
The responding officer took pictures of the vehicle to keep as evidence.
