Councilman Robert Johnson asked that residents who suspect a break-in should contact the Rhode Island State Police, but emphasized on Wednesday that the issue is not ‘out of control.’
“There have been four events in the past year on Widow Sweets Road,” said Johnson. “I am trying to confirm with the state police what information they have, but there was a rumor it was a Verizon guy, or a guy imitating a Verizon guy.”
