8:15 a.m. – A Bridge Street resident told police that someone broke into his car while it was parked in the driveway. The car had been unlocked. The resident told police that his glove compartment was open and that he was missing three pairs of sunglasses (Maui Jim) along with a bottle of bourbon whiskey (Sons of Liberty). Two days later, the resident contacted police again, to report additional missing items, including 200 compact disks (estimated value $2,000), Apple headphones ($30) and 10 pairs of cufflinks ($500).

9:30 a.m. – An employee of Alpha Associates on Rocky Hollow Road told police that their work and personal cars had been gone through in the parking lot. The cars were unlocked at the time. Loose change and some cigarettes were taken (estimated value $25).

10 a.m. – A Fifth Street resident told to police someone stole some things from his car and garage, both of which were unlocked. He said $40 and a bottle of prescription medication were missing from his car and a Specialized Matte Black 24-speed bicycle (estimated value $800) from his garage.

10:18 a.m. – A Second Street resident told police someone tried to break into his house. He said around 9:30 a.m., his wife saw that a lawn chair had been pushed up to their bedroom window. He said the bedroom window was opened at the same place the chair had been. The resident said his next-door neighbor had a video surveillance camera. Police checked the footage and could see a person opening the window at around 7:40 p.m. on Tuesday but that the person did not try to enter the house. The resident said he and his family were home at the time.

8:16 p.m. Police arrested an East Greenwich man, 65, for disorderly conduct after he was yelling and screaming while at the Oaks Tavern on Queen Street. When police arrived, the man was standing in the middle of Duke Street, holding a metal pipe in the air yelling, “C’mon I’ll kick your butt.” Despite requests from police, the man refused to stop yelling, saying he was angry about an incident that happened the day before. Police arrested him and took him to the EGPD, where he was processed and released with a District Court summons and issued a No Trespass order for the Oaks.
