North Kingstown Police said a Kingswood Road woman told police on March 19 that someone used her Social Security number to file a false tax return.

A case was opened with the IRS fraud department.

On March 22, a Hideaway Lane resident told police he has been having problems with someone tampering with the lights and motion sensors on his property.

The resident told police that someone removed the lightbulbs from the outside of his property and pointed the motion sensors upwards to disable them.

He’s also had people ring his door bell only to run away when he answers the door.

Police said the problem has occurred on several occasions and advised the resident to post no trespassing signs on his property.

Police are investigating.

A Forest Park Drive woman told police on Saturday that someone entered her Dodge Neon sometime overnight and stole an iPod nano and a pair of sunglasses.

Police said the car was parked on the street and it was left unlocked. When the woman got to her Saturday afternoon, she saw that items from the center console were strewn about the front seat.

North Kingstown Police charged Alexis Vergne, 22, of 347 Broadway, Newport, with driving with a suspended license and cited him for possession of marijuana (less than an ounce) after he was clocked driving 78 mph on Route 138 in a 50 mph zone.

Police said Vergne’s car smelled like burning marijuana and after he was in custody for the suspended license charge, the officer found a marijuana cigarette inside the car.

A North Kingstown police officer gave a ride home to a 34-year-old North Kingstown man who was not dressed for the cold early Sunday morning.

Police said the man flagged the officer down on Ten Rod Road near Paul Bailey’s.

The man appeared to be slightly intoxicated, police said, but he said he was trying to hitch a ride to his friends house in Narragansett but decided it was too cold to walk.

The officer said that due to the man not being dressed appropriately, he gave him a ride home.

Police charged Jared Jules Seigel, 20, of 236 Public St., Providence, with larceny for stealing a Samsung Galaxy S3 from an unlocked car parked at the Ten Rod Road Dunkin Donuts on March 17.

Police said they were contacted by a North Kingstown man who said he went into the store and when he came out, his phone was gone.

Store surveillance cameras caught an image of the suspect, who was found a short while later walking down Tower Hill Road by an officer on patrol.

Seigel reportedly told police that he did steal the phone from the car, saying “you know where I got it from, I stole it from the car in Dunkin Donuts.”

Police said he had two other phones on him but one had his personal photos on it and the other wasn’t working.
