At least three vehicles were reported stolen from hotels in Little Rock's River Market district in recent days, and a pickup was also reported missing from a nearby garage.

Two of the vehicles were reported stolen after being dropped off with valet services at the Little Rock Marriott on Statehouse Plaza over the weekend, according to police reports.

According to one report, a woman told police she handed her Nissan Pathfinder over to an unknown valet attendant Saturday night, but the valet service had no record of receiving it.

In the other reported theft at the Marriott Saturday, valet attendants told police a Honda Pilot was parked in front of the hotel while in transition to the garage with other vehicles. Attendants assumed the SUV made it to the garage, but did not specifically remember driving it there, and could not find it when the customer returned, according to the police report.

Another report states a guest at the Homewood Suites on River Market Avenue discovered several items missing from his family's room, including his keys. When police checked the parking garage, they found the guest's Buick Enclave was gone.

Several blocks away, a red and black Chevy pickup truck was reported missing Monday from a parking deck at 401 Main St.

Little Rock police spokesman Ernest Hilgeman said no other information was available about the thefts, including whether police are investigating them as related incidents.

    Maybe we should let the AHD build 10 lanes so people can zoom on by the wonderful downtown Little Rock crime pit.

    It really is a shame how dangerous downtown and especially the River Market area have become. LR becomes more like Detroit every day. There should be many more CC cameras in place since police don't seem to be able to patrol the area to the extent required to prevent these crimes. At least with CCTV there would be a greater chance of solving crimes after the fact.

    I've worked and played downtown for 20 years and have never experience any problems. But you rustic scaredy-cats, please stay away. You ruin the vibe.
