2:38 p.m. – A resident of Greenwich Bay Manor told police she was missing cash and jewelry, starting with the disappearance of $500 from her filing cabinet – which she keeps locked – around May 1. She did not report the cash missing. On May 15, she noticed another $500 was missing, which she reported to Greenwich Bay management. Around June 1, she said she noticed a URI class ring (valued at $700) and a cameo (valued at $1,000). Staff told police the resident had reported the thefts but had been unsure of the amounts. They have changed her lock and her valuables are now kept by a family member.

7:38 p.m. – Police cited a Delaware man for soliciting without a permit on Reynolds Street. Like the man cited above, this man was working for an organization called Urban Development Solutions, based in Michigan. He was given a municipal court summons.

9:18 p.m. – Police arrested a Warwick man, 31, for driving with a suspended license after he was pulled over because his motorcycle had an out of date registration sticker.

9:53 p.m. – Police arrested a North Kingstown man, 57, on a 3rd District Court bench warrant after police were called to Raku Restaurant because of a man who appeared to be drunk behaving belligerently. Routine checks turned up the warrant. The man initially was cooperative became aggressive when police searched him, telling police he was going to fight them. He continued to yell obscenities until he got to the police department, when he apologized. He was arraigned by a justice of the peace, posted bail and released. Police gave him a lift to his apartment on Post Road.
