DUI

At approximately 11:53 p.m. on June 1, Officer Paris Norwood responded to the Cumberland Farms at 1291 Warwick Ave. for a report of an intoxicated person.

Dispatch initially advised that a “highly intoxicated” man was said to be sitting near the air pumps outside his 2010 Honda in the store’s parking lot. While en route, Norwood was advised the man had entered the driver’s seat of his vehicle, which was being blocked in by the reporting party.

Arriving at the scene, Norwood observed the Honda and the reporting party’s vehicle blocking it from leaving. Norwood reports he exited his cruiser and approached the vehicles, at which point the reporting party moved his vehicle upon. The allegedly intoxicated driver then put his vehicle in reverse and began moving in Norwood’s direction, the officer reports, only stopping after Norwood shouted and struck the vehicle’s trunk with his palm.

Norwood then made contact with the operator, who reportedly had “bloodshot, watery eyes and a flushed face.” The officer also reports detecting a “strong odor of alcoholic beverage” on the man’s breath and states the man was “unable to make any coherent responses to my instructions.”

Norwood reports the operator acknowledged consuming alcohol earlier that night and refused to submit to field sobriety testing.

At that point, Michael Patrick McVey, 58, 115 Lyndon Road, Cranston, 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 refused a chemical breath test.

McVey was issued a summons to appear in Third Division District Court on a charge of driving under the influence and released into the custody of a sober relative. He was additionally cited for refusal to submit to a chemical test.

LARCENY

At approximately 7:16 p.m. on May 28, Officer Ben Bratko spoke by phone with a Bluff Avenue resident regarding a larceny complaint.

The reporting party told Bratko that a 9-foot inflatable dingy moored roughly 50 yards offshore from her home was missing. It had last been seen on the morning of May 27. The dingy – valued at roughly $2,000 – was not believed to have sunk or run aground, and the reporting party thought it had likely been stolen.

The matter was documented.

Just after 9 a.m. on May 29, Officer David Boardman responded to The Paradigm Group at 887 Greenwich Ave. for a report of malicious damage.

At the scene, the reporting party told Boardman that sometime between May 6 and May 20, the catalytic converter had been stolen from her 2008 Jeep Liberty while it was parked at the location. She estimated the cost of the damage at approximately $1,000.

The vehicle had been removed for repairs prior to the officer’s arrival. No security camera footage was available. The matter was documented.

At approximately 10:35 p.m. on May 31, Officer Albert Marano Jr.responded to a Pequot Avenue address for a report of a stolen bicycle.

At the scene, the reporting party told Marano that a young male suspect had stolen her son’s bike from the family’s driveway at approximately 9:30 a.m. that day. The theft was observed on security camera footage at the home, the reporting party said. The lime green, Haro brand bicycle was valued at approximately $500.

The matter was documented and forwarded to detectives.

SUSPENDED LICENSE

Shortly before 6 p.m. on May 13, Officer Brian Fontaine responded to a motor vehicle accident at the intersection of Warwick and Quinton avenues.

Fontaine checked with the operators of the two vehicles involved and confirmed neither had been injured. He then conducted records checks for both operators, which found one of the drivers had a suspended license and at least two previous convictions for driving with a suspended license.

Kailee V. Delprete, 24, 40 Green River Ave., Warwick, was arrested on a charge of driving with a suspended license, third or subsequent offense, and transported to Warwick Police headquarters for processing. She was later released with a summons to appear in Third Division District Court.

***

At approximately 10 a.m. on May 29, Officer Derek Mourato was driving south on Post Road when he observed the operator of a 2019 Nissan Pathfinder not wearing a seat belt. Mourato followed the vehicle as it turned into the parking lot of Cumberland Farms and initiated a motor vehicle stop.

Mourato made contact with the operator, who was found through a records check to have a suspended driver’s license and at least two previous convictions for driving with a suspended license.

Octavio Duarte, 31, 105 Meadow Road, North Providence, was issued a summons to appear in Third Division District Court on a charge of driving with a suspended license, third or subsequent offense. He was additionally sited for failure to wear a seat belt. He arranged for another operator to take custody of his vehicle and was released from the scene.

SHOPLIFTING

Shortly before 11:30 a.m. on June 1, Officer Nicholas J. DiNardo responded to the Lowe’s at 555 Greenwich Ave. for a report of a shoplifting incident that occurred on May 29.

At the scene, a loss prevention associate from the store told DiNardo that security camera footage showed a male suspect take a portable Craftsman generator – valued at approximately $450 – from the store without making any attempt to pay.

DiNardo was provided with a copy of the footage. The matter was documented and forwarded to detectives.
