A traffic stop was initiated in front of 930 Plainfield Street. The passenger, later identified as Antwon Barr, 29, of 168 Eastwood Avenue, was wanted on three warrants: a Superior Court bench warrant for failure to appear for a technical violation stemming from a second degree robbery, a Rhode Island State Police warrant for obstruction and driving with a suspended license, third offense, and a Family Court warrant.
Barr was taken into custody without incident and transported to police headquarters where he was processed. He was later transported to the Rhode Island State Police. The driver was issued a summons for display of plates and released at the scene.
While on patrol in the area of Starr Street on August 6 at approximately 11:20 a.m., Officer Hayleigh Cooper and David Galligan observed Randy Martin, 45, of 70 Glenwood Avenue in Cranston walking westbound.
The officer reported that they had prior knowledge that Martin had outstanding warrants, including a Third District Court warrant for failure to appear on a suspended license charge and a Superior Court bench warrant for failure to appear on a domestic vandalism charge.
Martin was placed under arrest and transported to police headquarters, processed, and held pending court.
At approximately 1 p.m. on August 3, while in the area of 1200 Plainfield Street, Officer Kayleigh Cooper and Remy Mendez observed a car traveling east with all of its windows tinted. The vehicle was then detained in the area of 1025 Plainfield Street.
Contact was then made with the driver, identified as Jonathan Pomales, 28, of 11 John Street in Johnston. Pomales informed the officers that his license was suspended, which was later confirmed through registry checks. Due to Pomales having a suspended license stemming from refusing to submit to a chemical breathalyzer test in November, 2017, he was arrested on the charge of driving on a suspended license. And transferred to police headquarters where he was held pending arraignment.
Pomales was also given a summons for unlawful installation of window tint.
