Monday, April 2

10:30 a.m. – A Warwick man, 37, was arraigned on a felony breaking and entering charge from an incident that took place at The End Zone restaurant Jan. 20. Because he had multiple probation violations, he was ordered held without bail and taken to the ACI.

He discovered this when he received a package in the mail from Home Depot containing a white rope. The man told police he didn’t order the rope and he contacted Home Depot and was told that there were charges between $1,600 dollars and $1,800 dollars on the account. (Another EG resident reported a similar incident in March.)  The Home Depot representative told the man he could not cancel the credit card until he filed a police report.
