RICHMOND — A West Greenwich man has been charged with writing a fraudulent check over $1,500 after local police said he refused to make restitution when given an opportunity by both the affected business and the local police.
Richmond police last week filed charges against Tyler Sutton, 28, after he was arrested in a traffic stop in Coventry. He was turned over to the custody of the Richmond Police Department and arraigned in Fourth Division District Court.
Sutton was later released on a promise to appear in Washington County Superior Court on Nov. 11, judicial records show.
Richmond police said the charges stem from a complaint made by Richmond Ready Mix, 35 Stilson Road. An investigation found that Sutton bounced a check for $1,943 worth of concrete products from the company. It was not clear whether the sale was for business or personal use.
Officials said that Sutton did not cooperate when the business and the police department made several attempts, both written and verbal, to collect on the debt. After giving him time to respond, police said they obtained the warrant earlier this year.
