EG Police Reports: Marijuana, Spitting & Slashing

by | Apr 28, 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.

Thursday, April 17

12:56 a.m. – Police cited a Providence woman, 22, for possessing marijuana (1 oz. or less) after she was stopped for speeding while driving east on Division Street. When talking to the driver, police detected a strong marijuana smell coming from the car. One of her two passengers handed over a small baggie with what later tested positive for marijuana. A search of the car failed to turn up any other contraband.

9:37 p.m. – A Castle Street resident called police after an argument with his neighbor and her boyfriend escalated to the point the boyfriend allegedly spit on the resident, then sliced one of his car tires. Police interviewed all three parties but stories were inconsistent – it was clear the tire was slashed but not clear who did it – so no charges were filed. Alcohol appeared to have been a factor.

Friday, April 18

6:35 p.m. – Police arrested an East Greenwich man, 39, for driving with an expired license after he was stopped on Division Street at Duke Street because his car was missing a front license plate. The man was issued a court summons and the car was towed from the scene.
