1:35 p.m. – A member of the Greenwich Club told police someone broke into her car while she was parked in the lot between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. The person smashed her front passenger window and took $30 in cash, her driver’s license, a $100 gift card and six credit cards.
4:09 p.m. – Police arrested a Providence woman, 27, for obstructing police after she told police she was someone else. The woman had driven up just after her sister’s car had been towed and the woman said it was her car, responding said, “Yes,” when police asked if she was the registered owner of the car, referring to the other woman. When police said there was an active warrant out on her, the Providence woman told police she wasn’t that person after all, that she was her sister. Because she identified herself as her sister, she was taken into custody and charged with obstruction. Meanwhile, the car the woman had come in was being driven by a Providence woman, 27, whose driver’s license was suspended. That woman was charged with driving with a suspended license and released at the scene with a 3rd District Court summons.
4:29 p.m. – An East Greenwich resident, 19, told police she thought someone was trying to steal her personal information. She said her resume was posted on two babysitting websites – care.com and sittercity.com – and that on July 14 she got an email from a man who said he need child care for his young child when they move from New York to East Greenwich. He said he would send a check for $500 to secure her services and would send another $500 to be deposited into her bank account. On July 29, the resident got a FedEx package at home containing a bank check for $2,780 made out to her. She deposited the check in her checking account but became nervous because the man began texting with more personal questions and messages. While police were interviewing the woman, she received several text messages from the man. He asked her to send $1,950 to a woman in St. Louis, Mo. Police told the woman not to spend any of the money while they conducted an investigation.
