by | Dec 18, 2014

These reports come from the East Greenwich Police Department and are public information. An arrest does not mean the individual has been convicted of a crime. EG News does not identify those arrested for misdemeanor charges.

Monday, Dec. 8

11:43 a.m. – Police were called to Shippee Road on a report of a FedEx truck on fire. By the time police arrived, the truck was fully engulfed in flames and EG Fire was working to put it out. The driver was uninjured. She told police she saw smoke coming dashboard while she was driving and then lost her brakes. She managed to pull the truck over and get out. Packages in the truck were damaged by the fire and/or the water used to put out the flames. A second FedEx truck arrived and took what was left of the packages.

7:48 p.m. – A Hemlock Drive resident told police something hit his daughter’s bedroom window, breaking it, while the girl was in the room. It was unclear what, if anything, had hit the window as there was no clear point of impact. No suspicious people were seen in the vicinity; the girl said she had been having no issues at school.

Tuesday, Dec. 9

6:51 a.m. – A problem between the ex-husband and current husband of a East Greenwich woman prompted the ex-husband to ask police to issue a no-trespassing order against the current husband. It started while the ex-husband, also of East Greenwich, was waiting in front of his house for his son to be dropped off by his ex-wife. The current husband showed up first and there was a resumption of conflict between the two men. According to the report, police had been called to mediate between the men before. The ex-husband decided to call the police and while he was on the phone, his ex-wife dropped off their son. Police issued the no-trespass order to the current husband and both men signed the paperwork.

Wednesday, Dec. 10

12:36 p.m. – An East Greenwich woman told police her car got keyed while it was parked in the lot outside of Ocean State Health and Fitness at 5600 Post Road. There was no video surveillance of the parking lot.

Thursday, Dec. 11

7:43 p.m. – A Warwick man told police someone driving a white sedan hit his car while it was parked outside of Endzone Pub & Grille, 5835 Post Road, while he was having dinner inside. A witness told police she was outside having a cigarette at around 7:40 p.m. when she saw a four-door white sedan driving fast around the corner at the back of Endzone and hit a pickup truck. She said a woman was driving the truck but that was all she could describe. An Endzone bartender told police two women had left around the same time as the accident. One of the women was located at McKinley’s but her car did not have any damage. Detectives were given information on the other woman; the investigation continues.
