9:53 a.m. – While on a medical call with EG Rescue at Shoreside apartments, police noticed a Coventry man familiar to them from a previous incident leaving the building. The man is not a resident and had been found there previously sleeping in the laundry room. On this day, police asked him how he was getting in and out of the building and he said he was buzzed in. But on further discussion he admitted he had a resident’s pass key. Housing officials were notified and the resident who had apparently given the man her key was told not to hand it out again.
1:56 p.m. – Police arrested John Belfi, 40, of Winthrop Street in Cranston for driving without a license after he was stopped because police noticed expired registration stickers on his car while he was driving east on Division Street. Routine checks had turned up he had a driver’s permit but that it was expired. He was issued citations for driving without a license and for driving with expired registration. Police seized the plates and had the car towed from the scene.
3:24 p.m. – A Main Street business owner told police someone had attempted to use a fraudulent credit card on his server today. The online transaction came from a computer I.P. address out of Egypt. While no loss occurred, the man wanted the incident documented.

11:43 a.m. – Police recovered a bike on Route 4 south near Division Street. It was later learned that the bike fell off a car and struck another car. The bike’s owner picked up the bike from the station.
6:27 p.m. – Police arrested Eric Cloutier, 37, of Eton Avenue in Warwick, on a bench warrant after the driver he was traveling with was pulled over by police because a tail light was out.

Sunday, Oct. 21
3:05 a.m. – Police arrested Peter Mastors, 24, of Mawney Street, on a bench warrant after police went to his apartment because of a noise complaint. He told police he had been arguing with his girlfriend but she had left. Routine checks turned up the warrant. He was arraigned at the station and released on bail.
5:16 p.m. – Police arrested Joseph Nicholson, 25, of Admiral Street in Providence, and Rachel Barnett, 20, of Smith Street in North Providence for violating no contact orders against each other after the car in which they were traveling as passengers was stopped for a possible violation. Routine checks turned up the no contact orders against each other so the two were taken into custody. While being processed at the station, Nicholson complained of shortness of breath and dizziness, telling police he’d taken a pill he thought was morphine and had been drinking alcohol. Rescue was called and while they were interviewing him, Nicholson fell flat on his face so he was taken by rescue to Kent Hospital. Meanwhile, Barnett admitted to using heroin, taking multiple percocets, and drinking alcohol, so police had her taken to Kent by Rescue as well. The two were released from Kent early Monday morning and taken back to EGPD for processing.
