— Conway police are searching for a 46-year-old man in two separate incidents of swindling people, according to authorities.

Eric Moultrie, 46, of Conway is wanted on three counts of breach of trust stemming from incident in June and on Wednesday, according to Catina Hipp, Conway police spokeswoman.

On Wednesday, a woman reported to police that she gave Moultrie her vehicle to wash and return it by 9:30 a.m., but he never returned, Hipp said. The victim said at 12 p.m. Wednesday she was unable to contact Moultrie.

On June 24, residents told police that Moultrie approached two homes and asked for money to pressure wash their houses and said he needed cash in advance to purchase supplies, police said.

The victims said they gave Moultrie cash in advance, but he never returned to complete the work.
