DUI

At approximately 2 a.m. on Sept. 12, Officer Jake Reddy responded to the Centerville Road underpass on Bald Hill Road for a report of a motor vehicle accident.

At the scene, another officer was speaking with the operator of the vehicle involved, described as a 2005 Mazda. The vehicle had “severe disabling damage to the front end,” Reddy reports, and its airbag had been deployed.

Reddy spoke with the vehicle’s operator and observed two open containers of beer in the vehicle – one in its center console, the other on the passenger-side floor.

“I observed [the operator] to have bloodshot watery eyes, slurred speech, and an overwhelming odor of alcohol emanating from his breath,” Reddy reports.

The operator is said to have acknowledged consuming alcohol that night and agreed to undergo field sobriety testing, which he reportedly failed.

Enrrique Alvarez, 23, 22 Summit Ave., Apt. 2, West Warwick, was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence and transported to Warwick Police headquarters for processing. While at headquarters, he is said to have agreed to undergo chemical breath testing, which reportedly found his blood alcohol content to be above the legal limit.

Alvarez was later released into the custody of a sober adult with a summons to appear in Third Division District Court on a charge of driving under the influence.

SHOPLIFTING

Just after 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 9, Officer David Boardman responded to Target at 1245 Bald Hill Road for a report of a female suspect concealing merchandise in her purse and shopping cart.

At the scene, Boardman identified a woman matching the suspect’s description next to a 2005 Chrysler SUV in the parking lot. He then spoke with a loss prevention officer, who had followed the suspect out of the store.

The loss prevention officer told Boardman the suspect had selected a “large amount of high dollar items” inside the store, removing their security devices and concealing the items in her clothing, shopping cart and purse. The suspect then exited the store without making any attempt to pay, at which point she was met by loss prevention personnel.

According to Target, the stolen items – including an iRobot vacuum and cosmetics – had a combined value of $2,302.31. The items were recovered.

Jordan A. Chichester, 33, 59 Cowesett Ave., Apt. 77, Coventry, was arrested on a charge of shoplifting and transported to Warwick Police headquarters for processing. She was later released with a summons to appear in Third Division District Court.

Shortly before 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 12, Officer Erick Herrera responded to Walmart at 650 Bald Hill Road for a report of shoplifting. Dispatch then advised that two suspects – one male, one female – were in the custody of loss prevention personnel.

At the scene, Herrera spoke with a loss prevention manager, who said the male suspect had been observed “ripping open watch cases and concealing them in his pocket.” The suspect is said to have concealed four watches with a combined value of more than $100 and exited the store without making any attempt to pay.

The woman who had been accompanying the male suspect was released after Walmart staff told police she had not stolen any items.

Geovannie Alomar, 40, 100 Broad St., Apt. 28, Providence, was arrested on a charge of shoplifting and transported to Warwick Police headquarters for processing. He was later released with a summons to appear in Third Division District Court.

Shortly after 6 p.m. on Sept. 12, Officer Sara Goes responded to Walmart at 650 Bald Hill Road for a report of two female shoplifting suspects in the custody of loss prevention personnel.

At the scene, a loss prevention officer told police the suspects had been observed “falsely scanning the wrong prices for items” at a self-checkout register. In keeping with store policy, the women were asked to move to another self-checkout register.

“At this time, [one suspect] under rang and ticket switched while [the other suspect] started bagging unscanned items inside the cart,” Goes reports. The women then exited the store with the merchandise that had not been paid for, which had a combined value of roughly $150. At that point, the women were met by store personnel and the merchandise was recovered.

Tiara L. Wilkins, 24, 286 Chad Brown St., Apt. D, Providence, and Delilah Aelia Jauregui, 22, of 170 Admiral St., Apt. 3, Providence, were each arrested on a charge of shoplifting and transported to Warwick Police headquarters for processing. Each was later released with a summons to appear in Third Division District Court.

WARRANTS

At approximately 1:44 p.m. on Sept. 2, Officer David Boardman was traveling north on Jefferson Boulevard during a routine patrol when he observed a 2016 Ford Fusion with “heavy limo style tint all around, including the windshield.”

A subsequent check of the vehicle’s registration found that its owner was wanted on an active arrest warrant issued from Providence Police.

Boardman initiated a motor vehicle stop and made contact with the Fusion’s operator, who was confirmed to be the registered owner.

Preston L. Moore, 33, 221 Valley St., Apt. 2, Providence, was taken into custody on the warrant and transported to Warwick Police headquarters for processing. He was later transferred into the custody of Providence Police.
