Newport Police: Tow Truck Driver Robbed At Park Holm (R.I.)


Recommended Posts

NEWPORT, RI— Police arrested a 17-year-old Newport teen on Wednesday and charged him with Larceny under $1,500, which is a misdemeanor. The incident happened April 2 at 5 p.m., but it took detectives some time to identify the accused. His name is not being published because he is a juvenile.


According to the arrest narrative, a tow truck driver was in the Park Holm parking lot on April 2 when he ran into a problem with a car owner and the owner's friend. An argument started, and while the driver was dealing with the two people, he was not watching the truck. When he returned, he noticed his work tablet was gone. Police had a description of a suspect, and they eventually located the accused. He allegedly told police he did not know where the tablet was or who might have it now.


"I want to be honest," he said, according to the police narrative. He allegedly said he threw the tablet on the grass and walked away.
