LARCENY

At approximately 8:18 a.m. on Sept. 7, Officer Nicholas DiNardo responded to a Helen Avenue home for a report of larceny from a motor vehicle overnight.

At the scene, the reporting party told DiNardo that both his vehicle and his wife’s vehicle had been entered and rummaged through sometime between 9:30 p.m. the previous night and that morning. A few items were missing, including the man’s wallet and a work bag. Both vehicles were believed to have been unlocked.

The reporting party told DiNardo that a credit card from his stolen wallet had been used to make purchases at 7-Eleven and Shell locations in Connecticut. Those charges had already been deemed fraudulent and refunded.

The matter was documented.

STOLEN VEHICLE RECOVERED

Just before 7:30 a.m. on Sept. 8, Officer Tomas Bogusz responded to a Fletcher Street residence for a report of a possibly stolen motor vehicle parked at the location.

Bogusz arrived at the scene and ran a check of the registration on the 2003 Ford F250 in question, which revealed the vehicle was listed as stolen out of Providence. The officer additionally reports that the vehicle’s front passenger-side window was smashed, a portion of its dashboard was missing, its steering column lock was broken and its front hood was missing.

The vehicle was towed from the scene, and Bogusz made contact with its registered owner by phone.

Just after 1 p.m. on Sept. 9, Officer David Boardman received an online report of larceny of a package. The theft reportedly occurred between Aug. 28 and Sept. 9 at East Coast Lighting on Jefferson Boulevard.

Boardman spoke by phone with the owner of the business, who said an Etsy order valued at $257.99 had been delivered to East Coast Lighting on Aug. 28 and left outside a garage bay. Before the package could be taken inside, it was stolen, the business owner said. The package is said to have contained nutritional items, including vitamins.

The matter was documented and the registration plate was entered into records as stolen.

SUSPENDED/NO LICENSE
