Tuesday, Sept. 24

Kenneth N. Boudreau III, 18, of 11 Echo Lane, was arrested after allegedly rear-ending a school bus on Education Lane at Sprague Street and then leaving the scene. The accident took place shortly after buses left the high school around 2 p.m. to transport students home; no one was injured. The driver of the bus gave police a description of the vehicle that left the scene — a tan Explorer — as well as a license plate number. Police responded to Mr. Boudreau’s home and charged him with leaving the scene of an accident, with damage to the attending vehicle. The next day, Mr. Boudreau’s car was rear-ended around 2:10 p.m. while he was driving on Sprague Street, police said. The other car was driven by Andrew Aleicho, 18, of 48 Canonchet Drive, according to police. No one was injured.

Steven J. Olbrych, 52, of 28 Rice St., Pawtucket, was arrested around 4:45 p.m. after police responded to a report of a vehicle that had hit a bicyclist on East Main Road near Oakland Farms, then fled the scene. After getting a description of the vehicle, police stopped Mr. Olbrych’s Chevy sedan near Foodworkd Restaurant. Police said they detected a strong odor of alcohol on his breath. Mr. Olbruch was charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in personal injury, driving while intoxicated (first offense) and refusal to submit to a chemical test. The bicyclist, a 61-year-old Portsmouth woman, had to receive stitches and said she suffered extensive bruising, a chest contusion and an elbow sprain.

Wednesday, Sept. 25

Two men — an 19-year-old from Maine and an 18-year-old from Connecticut — were charged with possession of marijuana (one ounce or less) and underage possession of alcohol, at the BayPoint Conference Center on Anthony Road. Police responded there around 3:30 p.m. after a Roger Williams University security officer reported that students were in possession of marijuana. The school’s director of student conduct said she had seen one student handing to another silver-wrapped packages that she believed contained marijuana. Police later found brownies believed to contain marijuana inside a refrigerator in a room. They also found a device used for grinding marijuana, a glass pipe and $381 in cash.

Deborah Bauer, 59, of 30 Fowler St., Salisbury, Conn., was charged with embezzlement and fraudulent conversion at about 11:20 a.m. The charge stems from a complaint made by a Glen Farm Road woman, who told police that at least $30,000 had been embezzled from her accounts by Ms. Bauer, her employee.

Robert Kneipp, 40, of 46 Mason Ave., Portsmouth, was charged with disorderly conduct and possession of illegal weapons other than firearms. Police responded to the address around 11:15 a.m. to assist with the eviction of Mr. Kneipp. The reporting constable said that during the eviction process, employees of the moving company had found several firearms in the residence, which police seized along with some ammunition. About an hour later Mr. Kneipp arrived and started arguing with the property owner, at which point he said, “I’ll put you in a body bag,” according to police.
