Police ask for help after rash of Maumelle break-ins


MAUMELLE, Ark. (KTHV) - A Maumelle neighborhood is shaken up after multiple thefts occurred Wednesday night. Now, police are investigating and looking for help as they try to find out who is responsible for 10 break-ins.

"Two o'clock in the morning, the last thing he wants to do is make a bunch of noise by breaking a window," said Maumelle Police Captain Jim Hansard.

He said the criminals go door to door checking for unlocked cars. And even though some see the area near Diamond Pointe and West Pointe as a nice neighborhood, Hansard said it isn't unusual to see crimes in that kind of area.

"This kind of thing can happen anywhere," Hansard said. "The perpetrators went into unlocked vehicles and took whatever they could find."

They took money, purses and even firearms. Most of the property has been recovered, but two of the guns are still missing.

Little Rock Fire Department to offer free CPR class

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (July 31, 2015) – The Little Rock Fire Department is introducing an initiative to teach residents basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills for use in emergency situations

The “Put Me in Chief” program will hold a free CPR class from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 8, at the Little Rock Fire Training Facility at 7000 Murray St. The class includes a demonstration on how to provide primary emergency response in the event of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

Data provided by the American Heart Association show that roughly 70 percent of Americans feel helpless during a cardiac emergency because they either don’t know how to administer CPR or their training has lapsed. Additionally, some people are afraid they will hurt the individual in distress if they try to administer CPR.
