Texarkana Texas Police Officers have arrested a local woman for theft after she attempted to pawn several boxes of stolen ammunition.
On May 14, 2015, Detective Kim Weaver was inside Superior Pawn and Guns in Texarkana, Arkansas recovering property from an unrelated case. While she was there, Deborah Conway, 50, of Texarkana Texas, entered the store and placed twenty-five boxes of ammunition on the counter. Weaver knew that a theft had occurred a short time before at Academy Sports and became suspicious of Conway. Weaver contacted the assistant manager at Academy Sports by telephone while Conway waited at the counter. Weaver requested that Texarkana Arkansas Police Officers respond to her location and then approached Conway to ask her about the ammunition. She told Weaver that she had removed it from a relative’s garage in Ashdown. The Academy Sports assistant manager was able to quickly review their video surveillance footage and provided a description of both the woman and the items that had been stolen that perfectly matched Conway.
Conway was arrested by TAPD at the scene for Theft by Receiving and transported to jail. On May 15, Conway was transferred to our custody and arrested for Theft under $1500 with two prior convictions, which is classified as a state jail felony. She is currently being held the Bi-State Jail pending a bond being set by a magistrate.
