WARRANTS

Patrolman Michael A. Martufi Jr. responded to the intersection of Killingly Street and Hartford Avenue on the afternoon of Aug. 28 to assist with a motor vehicle stop.

During the stop, procedural checks on the driver – identified as Thomas M. Fallah Jr., 32, 17 Allendale Ave., Johnston – revealed that he was wanted on an active bench warrant issued from Superior Court for failure to appear originating from a first-degree robbery charge. Fallah was placed under arrest and transported to Superior Court.

Patrolwoman Kayleigh Cooper and Patrolman Derrick Palazzo responded to Burlington Coat Factory at 1386 Atwood Ave. on the evening of Sept. 1 to assist the Johnston Fire Department with a report of an unresponsive male.

Joseph Souza, 36, 66 North Spruce St., East Providence, said that he had fallen asleep in his car, and he subsequently signed a refusal to be transported to the hospital with JFD. A check revealed that Souza was wanted on two warrants, one of which being a bench warrant for a hold without bail violated and the other a bench warrant for hold without bail failure to appear for an arraignment.

Both stemmed from a previous DUI charge, Cooper said. Souza was arrested and transported back to JPD headquarters before being taken to the ACI for arraignment.
