Brothers charged with breaking into Blue Whale Inn


WAKEFIELD — Two brothers have been charged with breaking into an apartment at the Blue Whale Inn in Westerly, taking a safe and allegedly attempting to escape by car before Westerly police arrested them Wednesday on Shore Road.

Slone M. Williams, 27, and Wayne G. Williams, 25, both entered no plea to felony charges of breaking and entering a dwelling without consent and conspiracy before 4th Division District Court Judge Pamela Woodcock-Pfeiffer on Thursday. Wayne Williams told the judge his address was “bouncing around Pawcatuck.”

Westerly Lt. Phil Williams said police were called to The Blue Whale Inn at 54 Winnapaug Road reporting a break-in in progress, indicating the suspects made their way into the apartment by kicking door.

He said the suspects allegedly carried a black safe out of the apartment, and left in a vehicle being operated by an unidentified female.

A short time later, Lt. Williams said, police received a call about a car, bearing the same registration plates, speeding through a residential neighborhood.

After retrieving the safe, the owner was contacted to make a positive identification and said she wished to pursue charges, Williams said.

The men were held overnight until their arraignment Thursday.

Both were to be released on $2,000 with surety on this case.

However, Slone Williams was scheduled to go before Superior Court Judge Melanie Wilk Thunberg on charges that he is a violator of terms of his probation on a previous case where he was sentenced to a six-year suspended sentence.
