2:11 a.m. – An East Greenwich man called police to say he was being chased by a woman in a white shirt and that he was hiding from her on Shippeetown Road just off Division Road. Police found the man standing in the intersection. He explained he had been hosting a few friends at his new home and his ex-girlfriend showed up uninvited and that’s who he was fleeing. Police could smell alcohol on the man’s breath. They took him to his house, where they found the ex-girlfriend, who also appeared to have been drinking and was visibly upset. She said she’d seen a post on Facebook about the party and came to find out why she wasn’t invited. The man said he did not want her to stay. A mutual friend, who was not intoxicated, agreed to give the woman a ride home. Police told the woman not to return.

11:27 a.m. – The owners Hobson & Coutu, a collections company, told police about a message left on their answering machine over the weekend. “You should be ****** careful who the **** you send notices to. . . . I’m coming for you. I’m ready for ******* blood. I don’t have much time left to live. But I’m going to kill you before I do.” The caller identified himself as Heinz Guderian and the business and police could find no record for that name. Police did find a reference to a Heinz Guderian in history – he was German general who lived from 1888 to 1954 and was a renowned armored forces expert.

4:31 p.m. – A Warwick woman told police her wallet had gone missing after she left it beside her while watching a basketball game at Our Lady of Mercy School gym Saturday afternoon. By the time she returned to the school to look for it, it was gone. The janitor said he had not seen it and nothing had been turned in. When the woman called Capital One to cancel a credit card, she learned the card had been used three times on Saturday – at Silver Spoon Bakery on Main Street for $15, at Walgreens in Warwick where charges for $509 and $254.95 were declined, and at a CVS in Warwick where a $234 purchase was declined. The credit card had a $300 limit. No other cards had been used. The manager of the bakery said they have surveillance but the video is deleted after 24 hours. Police contacted Walgreens and CVS to get copies of their video surveillance from Saturday afternoon. The woman said she would press charges if a suspect was caught.

8:05 p.m. – The manager of CVS on South County Trail told police a man came into the store and shoplifted an Oral B electric toothbrush, walking out with it under his coat. The alarm sounded when the man walked out, alerting the manager. She was able to give police the man’s car license number and a description. Video surveillance footage showed the man in the dental hygiene aisle taking a box from the shelf and placing it under his coat in another aisle before walking out.

9:42 a.m. – A Watch Hill Drive resident told police a dog tried to bite her dog she was walking the dog in the neighborhood. Police spoke with the owner of the other dog, who said she’d been outside with the dog and the dog was on a leash but had gotten free. This was the second incident with the same dogs. The animal control officer gave the owner of the second dog some tips on how to control her dog as well as a ticket for the dog being at large.

12:59 p.m. – Police arrested Harris Moid, 18, for breaking and entering, and felony counts of larceny greater than $1,500 and receiving stolen goods over $1,500. The first two charges were out of EGPD, the third charge was out of Warwick. Moid turned himself in. He was arraigned at 3rd District Court and told to have no contact with the victim or property. Bail was set at $10,000 personal recognizance.
