Richmond police arrest man on fugitive charges

RICHMOND — A Providence man was arrested by Richmond police Oct. 3 on multiple charges including being a fugitive from justice.

Police report they stopped Christopher E. Schreffler, 46, on Buttonwood Road after it was determined he was driving an unregistered car. Corporal William Litterio said when he checked on Schreffler, he found him to have a suspended driver’s license and was wanted on two District Court warrants stemming from failure to appear on shoplifting and suspended license charges in East Providence.

Additionally, Litterio indicated in his report that during the stop he located and seized a new 8,000-watt generator — valued at more than $1,000 — which had been reported stolen from Lowe’s Home Improvement in Waterford, Conn., earlier in the day.

Schreffler was charged with obstructing a police officer, being a fugitive from justice and operating on a suspended license. Richmond Police Chief Elwood M. Johnson Jr. said an additional charge of receiving stolen goods under $1,500 will also be brought against Schreffler.

Man charged after alleged confrontation

RICHMOND — A West Kingston man was charged with a misdemeanor after he allegedly complained about recreational vehicle use in the area.

Leonard R. Ponte, 72, 11 Sunset Drive, West Kingston, was charged Sunday with disorderly conduct after Richmond police received a 911 call reporting he had allegedly confronted a male neighbor about another family’s use of recreational vehicles in a nearby wooded area governed by the neighborhood’s homeowner’s association.

Police said the alleged victim declined to file assault charges, but an arrest was made “as the result of statement made by an alleged eyewitness.” Ponte was transported to the station where he was processed and released with a summons to appear on Oct. 31 in Fourth Division District Court.
