eg police dept.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.

Monday, July 7

6:16 p.m. – Police arrested a Warwick man, 34, on a 3rd District Court bench warrant after he was seen slumped over on a bench on Main Street. The man admitted he’d had some beers, which was why he was sitting.  Routine checks turned up the warrant for failing to appear. He was taken into custody and, unable to make bail, was delivered to the Adult Correctional Institutions in Cranston.

Tuesday, July 8

1:34 p.m. – A King Street man told police the American flag in front of his house was taken by a man on June 30 and it was captured on his surveillance video. The video is very blurry, so the man is hard to distinguish.

4:32 p.m. – Police arrested a Woonsocket man, 24, on a 3rd District Court bench warrant after the car he was traveling in was pulled over for tinted windows. Routine checks on both the driver and the passenger (the man from Woonsocket) turned up the warrant. He was taken into custody and, unable to make bail, delivered to the ACI.

Wednesday, July 9

11:45 a.m. – A Coventry woman told police she was uncomfortable about a man who has been frequenting the East Greenwich pharmacy where she works. He comes several times a week to the store and on July 3 he brought her flowers, even though she had told him earlier she was dating someone. She asked if police would issue a no-trespass order. Police told her to get the man’s license plate number or call police next time she sees him.

11:52 a.m. – Police arrested a Cranston man, 22, for larceny after he took cash, an XBox and XBox games from a house on Empress Drive in an incident that was reported last week. The man had been one of a few people invited over to the house by the teenager hired to care for the pets while the family was away. (The homeowner had not given the teen permission to have guests at the house.) Police talked to people who had been at the house, narrowing in on the Cranston man, who eventually admitted he had taken the items. The man came to EGPD with a backpack from the Empress Drive house that contained the XBox, seven XBox games, and headphones. He said he and two others had divided the money while at the house after finding it in the upstairs bedroom where the XBox had been. It was not among the items handed over to police. The man was taken into custody, processed and released with a 3rd District Court summons.
