Narragansett Police Log: September 2, 2012

A URI student is arrested – again – for a warrant, and a Providence teen is charged with driving without a license.

Unless otherwise noted, information about the following incidents was supplied by the Narragansett Police Department. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.

Providence Teen Charged With Driving Without License

Wifferson L. Manzano, 18, of 17 Grand St., Apt. #1, Providence, was arrested at about 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 2 and charged with driving without a license.

According to police, an officer monitoring traffic on Knowlesway near Point Judith Road noted a red Honda Accord with a missing front license plate and a cracked windshield. A traffic stop was made at the entrance of the Anchor Motel.

Manzano – the driver – told police that he did not have a license, and a background check confirmed no Rhode Island license on file. He was arrested, and also cited for operation of an unregistered vehicle and misuse of plates.

He was processed and then released at about 5:04 p.m.

URI Student Arrested for Warrant

Kelly Schwendeman, 21, of 18 Rockland St., Narragansett, was arrested at about 12:45 a.m. on Sept. 2.

Police said Schwenderman is a student at the University of Rhode Island, and a Fourth Division District Court warrant was out for her arrest for not appearing at a court hearing related to a Narragansett police charge of misrepresentation of age. Schwendeman was arrested for a similar warrant in April.

According to police, an officer traveling on Point Judith Road near Burnside Avenue spotted a dark-colored sedan with a defective rear plate light. A traffic stop was made near Angell Road.

Police said a background check revealed the warrant for Schwendeman’s arrest – she was a passenger in the car. She was arrested without incident, processed and then released at about 3:15 a.m.

The driver was warned for the defective plate light and allowed to drive from the scene.
