18-year-old charged in Westerly Library break-in


WESTERLY — An 18-year-old man faces two felony counts after Westerly Police charged him with twice breaking into the Westerly Library in February.

Shane M. Kenner, 18, of 65 High St., Apt. 2, Westerly, was charged Wednesday with two felony counts of breaking and entering a building with criminal intent, and two misdemeanor charges of larceny under $1,500.

Kenner’s alleged breaks into the library on Broad Street in February had Westerly police at one point surrounding the facility in the early morning hours, guns drawn, and Officer Ryan Page with K-9 Zigo looking throughout the building and surrounding area for the suspect who had “climbed through a first-floor window.” Prior to that incident, the library’s security officer had noticed a screen had been cut and a window open. At the time of the two incidents, police were going over library surveillance information and shortly after sent out a bulletin to neighboring departments seeking Kenner, who was not publicly identified as a suspect.

Initial reports on the incident indicated a man with a red backpack entered the building through a window, stealing a small amount of petty cash of about $70 from two separate locations, and getting away as police surrounded the building.

Police Chief Edward W. St. Clair said Kenner also stole a Kindle e-reader.

Kenner is scheduled to be arraigned in 4th Division District Court on April 14.
