On July 18 at approximately 12:13 p.m. Officer Rose Michel and Detective Darren Parrillo responded to the Metro PCS store on Bald Hill Rd. for the report of a female fleeing the scene after kicking the glass front entry door of the store.
A witness said that the female, later identified as Jennifer Bailey, 36, of 11 Browne St. in Cranston, had entered the store and yelled about how poorly a vehicle had been parked in the parking lot. The vehicle belonged to a co-worker of the witness, and the witness said Bailey yelled profanities at them before leaving the store. When she left, she said she kicked the glass front door, breaking it.
She then left in a Chevrolet Tahoe, for which the witness got the registration plate number for, and drove away.
At this time, dispatch told the officers that Bailey had called Warwick P.D. and told them that she had accidentally broken the glass door. Det. Parrillo drove to meet with Bailey and brought her back to Metro PCS. Parrillo said she had struck the door with her knees as she entered the door, causing it to break.
The two workers identified Bailey as the one who broke the door. Bailey was given a no trespassed order from the store, as was the male she was with, and took into custody and brought back to police headquarters.
She was charged with Disorderly Conduct and Vandalism/Malicious Injury to Property and released on a court summons.
On July 17 Officer Richard Odell met with Lucas Britton, 26, of 43 Bernon St. in Providence, who wanted to turn himself in for a crime and take the blame for his friend, the defendant in a court case.
Britton said he and his friends had gone to Oakland Beach and became curious about how secure the American flag was in the Top of the Bay parking lot. He said he then undid the clips of the flag and brought it down before running to his car, when he and his two friends were apprehended by a restaurant employee. One of his friends took the blame for it when Britton was the one who did it.
Britton was subsequently charged with one count of Larceny under $1,500 and given a court summons.
