  • SHOP WITH COPS: Maumelle police offer lot for Craigslist meetings.

The Little Rock area has seen more than its share of Craiglist crimes — people robbed, even killed in a Little Rock robbery last week, after arranging to meet someone to buy or sell an item listed for sale on Craigslist.

KTHV reports that Maumelle police have invited the public to use their parking lot for such transactions. The building is staffed 24 hours a day and security cameras are in place on the lot.

PS: Creating such a safe place was one of our Big Ideas for Arkansas last year
