Man caught on camera breaking into home, cars


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Multiple burglaries on the same street in North Little Rock have left neighbors on edge as they wait for police to catch the person responsible.

Victims of the burglaries said they are worried because of how unusual this is for their neighborhood. One homeowner did manage to catch the burglar in the act.

"The guy comes in the back of their house, rummages through everything, and then walks out close to their bedroom and goes out the front door. Now how frightening is that," said JD Ashley as he described what he saw in the surveillance video.

"Got a real good picture of the suspect."

North Little Rock police reports indicate several homes along North Hills Blvd. had been broken into. Ashley was one of the victims. "If I hadn't had my garage door locked, the guy would have walked right in on me and my wife," said Ashley.

School bus ads a possibility for NLRSD


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - On Wednesday, the North Little Rock School District finalized its budget for the next year, accounting for its loss in desegregation funding. 

The discussion of budgets has left its administrators searching for alternate sources of revenue, and after this year's legislative session, its superintendent thinks he's found one. They're looking to sell ads on their school buses. 

This year legislators passed HB-1495, which would give schools the option. The state is still crafting rules, but the superintendent is all for it. Studies suggest the average person sees 5,000 ads a day. 

“Well, I think it's the way we do business now in schools,” said NLRSD superintendent Kelly Rodgers. “I think advertisement on buses would be great.” 

THV Working for You: Explaining the new NLRHS crosswalk


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A new crosswalk in North Little Rock is drawing more community concern.

THV11 first reported on the story in August when parents were worried about safety, now they're worried about how it works.

It's called the H.A.W.K. system and stands for high intensity activated crosswalk. It gives drivers and walkers 10 different signals in the matter of a minute and they're wondering if it was the right decision.

"Don't walk," said crossing guard Nadine Jennings to students at the crosswalk on Main Street. "Alright come on let's go," she continued signaling across the road.

People like Nadine are the first people our kids encounter each day. Giving safety when they arrive at school and tone when they leave.

Jennings has been doing it for 17 years, but now she's got an extra buddy in the H.A.W.K. system helping her and her kids along.
