Motel tryst turned into theft, man says

A Little Rock woman was arrested early Wednesday after a vehicle theft was reported by a man who said a woman had agreed to have sex with him before the theft, according to an affidavit.

The victim told police that he had taken Dominique Mayers, 34, out to eat, and then to the Sportsman's Inn on 2501 E. Broadway where they were to have sex, the affidavit said.

According to the affidavit, Mayers grabbed the keys and ran out of the room while the victim was undressed, getting away with his vehicle, and lawn equipment.

Mayers was arrested at 3201 West Roosevelt Road at 4:20 a.m., and she was taken to the Pulaski County jail. She is charged with felony theft of property and misdemeanor failure to appear on a different warrant.

Shoplifting suspect held in burglary, too

A Jacksonville man who was arrested Wednesday in a shoplifting case also has been charged in a burglary at a church two hours earlier that morning, according to a report.

Police responded at 11:15 a.m. to a shoplifting report at a shopping center at 1319 T P White Drive where Brandon England, 19, was accused of concealing items and refusing to pay, the report said.

England matched the description of the suspect in an 8 a.m. burglary of Second Baptist Church on 1117 N. James St. in which a door was damaged and "Summer England was here ..." was written on the wall, according to the report.

The report said that England told police that he "barely remembered" being at the church and that he was on drugs at the time.

England was taken to the Pulaski County jail and is charged with felony commercial burglary and two felony counts of criminal mischief.
