Thieves target vehicles near Conway trail

Thieves target vehicles near Conway trail


CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - If you happen to walk, jog or bike, you may need to watch out the next time you leave your car to work out. The Conway Police Department continues to get reports of car break-ins in parking lots near the Tucker Creek Trail.

Two break-ins happened days apart, and the thieves took cash and debit cards and a gun that was left behind in one of the cars. Police told THV it is where the keys were that made these break-ins a piece of cake for criminals.

Once Deidra Maltbia locks her car, she wishes she could forget about it, but because of recent car break-ins in the parking lots near the Tucker Creek Trail, she cannot.

"I do not leave anything in my car," said Maltbia. "I do not trust anybody."

She also takes her keys with her. Other runners now holding on tight too.

CATA looking to increase low ridership

CATA looking to increase low ridership


LITTLE ROCK, Ark (KTHV) - Fewer people are riding the bus in Central Arkansas. The Central Arkansas Transit Authority says they're down 5 percent in ridership from last year, saying the decrease came at the hands of this winter's weather.

"When it comes to level of investment in our system we're not at the top," said CATA executive director Jarod Varner.

In a day and age when there are more cars than people in the world the novel idea of public transportation can often be overlooked, and Varner wants to change that.

"I think there's room, much room for improvement when it comes to the service area as well as the frequency of service," he said.

Varner has had to implement cost saving measures that include lower fuel rates and fewer employee benefits to make up for the decrease in ridership.

"It comes at a time that we're being very introspective," he continued.
