The Police Log is a digest of reports filed by the Warwick Police.
A Scituate man was arrested on Oct. 5 and charged with disorderly conduct after a woman customer at the Wal-Mart store on Post Road told police he was exposing himself and masturbating in the parking lot of the store around 4:30 p.m. The 33-year-old woman said she was walking out of the store toward her own vehicle two spaces away from the man. She told police she at first thought the man might be having a seizure because of his motions and the noises he was making but when she realized what he was doing, she made a note of the plate number and called police. She said it was particularly disturbing because he acknowledged her as she passed his car but made no effort to conceal himself or his actions. Officer Nadine Parmenter arrived just as the suspect was attempting to leave the lot and pulled his car over. The woman positively identified the man, Thomas P. Robinson, 34, of 700 Tunk Hill Rd. in Scituate, and he was arrested, charged with disorderly conduct and later released with a summons for District Court.
Officer Nicholas DiNardo reported he was called into headquarters to speak with the manager of a check-cashing service who had conducted an investigation into an employee at the Check N Go office on Bald Hill Road on Oct. 4 and had fired the employee for embezzlement and now wanted to file a criminal complaint against her. He said the woman admitted she took $120 from the register and gave it to a friend to pay some bills and promised to return the money that night but never showed up. DiNardo said he called the woman who voluntarily came into headquarters. He said Jhosyvette Collado, 27, of 39 Ivy St. in Cranston, repeated her admission to him and was booked for one count of embezzlement and later released on $5,000 personal recognizance.
Officer William DiGiulio reported finding a carving fork embedded in a tire on Overton Street on Oct. 2. DiGiulio said he was investigating vandalism to a vehicle when the owner of a new Kia Sorento SUV showed him the carving fork stuck in the sidewall of the driver’s side front tire. He said the value of the tire was around $120. No suspects or witnesses. The owner told DiGiulio she had no idea why someone would flatten her tire.
An employee of the Park School on Asylum Road told Officer John Curley she came to work on Sept. 30 and found that a 4-inch by 4-inch white wooden lawn post and a plant basket had been removed from the ground and thrown into the yard.
