Tuesday, Feb. 3

8:13 a.m. – An Adirondack Drive resident told police someone plowed all the snow into his garage, blocking access and damaging the garage door in the process, and trapping a car in snow too. The resident said he does not hire anyone to plow his driveway. He said he heard someone plowing his driveway at 3:30 a.m. but went back to bed without confronting the plow driver. It wasn’t until morning that he saw what the driver had done.

8:34 a.m. – An EG man told police the front bumper on his girlfriend’s car was damaged while it was parked in the municipal lot at 111 Peirce Street. It appeared to have been caused by a snow plow pushing snow forcefully enough to damage the bumper.

3:50 p.m. – For the third week in a row, police were called to the Liberty Street side of the warehouse at 461 Main St., because of tractor trailers blocking the roadway. Police found a trailer extending a few feet into Liberty Street. The officer watched for about 20 minutes, during which time about 20 vehicles passed by, navigating around the trailer without a problem. Based on that, police did not take any action.

6:32 p.m. – Police arrested a West Warwick woman, 52, for violating a no-contact order after she was detained by West Warwick police. The charged dated back to May 1, 2014. The woman was processed at EGPD and released after a friend brought in bail money.

Wednesday, Feb. 4

9:22 p.m. – An EG man told police he was frustrated with repeated conflicts with his neighbor, who lives in the same building. The other man banged the wall that separates their apartments “very aggressively” earlier in the evening, for no apparent reason. He said the other man also punched a hole in the glass in his front door because he said the first man owed him $20. There’s also an issue over heat for the building – there’s only one zone, and the man who called the police said the other man always turns the heat down. He said he didn’t want to press charges, but just wanted the problems to stop. The second man admitted to police he’d lost his temper and banged the walls. He said he just wanted the $20 he was owed. And he said the heat was an issue because the two men were so different in their preferences. Police told the second man to remain under control, and noted that the caller was elderly, so any charges would be higher.

Thursday, Feb. 5

5:24 a.m. – Police arrested Steven Devonis, 56, of Cranston for violating a no contact order, a felony because it was the third offense. The incident took place at a hair salon on Main Street in January. Devonis had been picked up by state police so EG police picked him up at the Lincoln barracks and took him to the EG station for processing and held until court opened.
