JUST A WAY
Patrolman Kevin Brady reported he witnessed two people talking loudly in the parking lot of D. Palmieri’s Bakery around 6 p.m. on March 11 and went over to see what the problem was. He said the man and the woman involved said that they were friends and that was just the way they talked to each other. But Brady said a check on the two people revealed an arrest warrant for the woman for vandalism in North Providence and an outstanding warrant for her failure to appear for a shoplifting charge in District Court. Tracy A. Micielli, 47, of 27 Greenville Ave., Johnston, was processed at headquarters and later turned over to the North Providence Police.
Patrolman Luca Lancellotti reported arresting two men on Newman Avenue on March 15 for outstanding warrants. Nizar Rassas, 24, of 203 Greenville Ave., had two bench warrants out of District Court for failure to appear for vandalism in Smithfield and domestic disorderly in Pawtucket. Shaun Mckeage, 25, of the same address, had a bench warrant for failure to appear for a shoplifting charge out of North Smithfield. Both men were processed at headquarters and later transported to the ACI.
On Jan. 29 a Johnston woman called police to complain that her estranged husband violated a no contact order by calling her. She told police she informed him that she had reinstated the order and he replied, “I don’t give a [expletive].” Patrolman Derrick Palazzo said he traced the call back to a tattoo shop in Cranston, but Palazzo did not find him there. In the meantime, the woman told police her ex-husband called their daughter and told her he would “bust her head.”
Palazzo said things got complicated when BCI reported that the man had not seen the renewed court order. He said he called the woman and told her he could not arrest her ex for the no contact order if he hadn’t been notified that it was back in force. She told Palazzo she checked with the ACI and learned that he was notified of the order before he was released that morning around 12 p.m. Palazzo said he called the ACI and a different guard said that the man was not served his copy of the order before he was released. He said he told the woman he could not arrest her ex at that time, but documented the situation in case it was learned that he was, indeed, served the order before he was released.
On Feb. 4 Sgt. Michael Babbitt reported that the department’s domestic violence liaison confirmed that Deputy Sheriff Pamela Dos Reis served the suspect a copy of the Family Court’s no contact order at 9:30 a.m. Jan. 29. An arrest warrant was prepared for Samuel W. Cardarelli, 44, of 8210 Queens Blvd., Elmhurst, N.Y. Patrolman David Galligan reported that he went to Warwick Police Headquarters on March 14 to take custody of Cardarelli, who was also the subject of a warrant for failure to appear for a vandalism charge. He was also charged as a probation violator and remanded to the ACI to await a court appearance.
