Monday, Nov. 10

3 p.m. – An East Greenwich real estate agent told police she’d received a phone call from a man who said had just won the lottery and wanted to look at a house on Miss Fry Drive. He said he knew her, called her “honey,” asked her out to dinner and commented on her hair. She declined to go out with him. He was to call last Friday to set up a meeting to see the Miss Fry Drive house but never called. The woman said she then heard that similar incidents had taken place in Fall River so she reported the incident. Police ran the man’s name, which came back with several addresses, and advised Fall River police.

5 p.m. – A Miss Fry Drive resident told police someone rang her doorbell several times at 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 8. When she answered the door, she found a pile of cooked chicken wings. A grease spot remained after cleaning up the wings. She reported the incident after neighbors related similar incidents had happened.

Tuesday, Nov. 11

10:08 a.m. – Police arrested an East Providence man, 48, for driving while intoxicated, second offense, after he was stopped at Division and Marlborough streets. Police had gotten a call from a motorist who saw the man on a motorcycle driving erratically on Route 95. The suspect continued onto Route 4 south and got off at the Division Street exit and the caller continued the follow. Police stopped the motorcyclist at Division and Marlborough streets. Police noticed a strong smell of alcohol on the man, who said he’d been drinking the night before and could still be feeling the effects of the alcohol. The man failed field sobriety tests so police took him into custody. At the station, the man refused to take a blood alcohol test. He was given a 3rd District Court summons and a Traffic Tribunal summons for refusing to take the BAC.

Wednesday, Nov. 12

11:39 a.m. – A Middle Road resident told police their cars were broken into overnight. She said she noticed two or three shadowy figures run past the garage entrance when she went to close the door at around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday. It wasn’t until this morning that she noticed two of the cars at the house had been broken into. Among the items missing were a purse with her Social Security card, $50 cash and two debit cards. A wallet containing $90 was missing from the second car. The second car had been unlocked; there was nothing in the report about the first car’s status.
