PAWTUCKET â€” A Central Falls man accused of breaking into several churches and local businesses, including stealing a churchgoer's car, was arrested by Pawtucket Police on Wednesday.
Dean M. Dumont, of Clay Street, was taken into custody on Dexter Street on Wednesday by Officer James Baino. According to Major Arthur Martins, a description and other information that came about during an investigation of the crimes led to police identifying Dumont as the suspect in the Park Place Congregational Church break-in last Sunday. Police were also able to tie him to several other recent break-ins.
LINCOLN â€” Corey A. Dumas, 37, initially thought he was lucky not to have lost anything as a result of a break into his family business, Lil & Geneâ€™s Restaurant in Manville this week.
But that feeling quickly soured when Dumas later found one of his 29 Winter Street businessâ€™ personal treasures to be missing after all.
No, Dumas didnâ€™t lose a large sum of money or even an expensive piece of business equipment. He lost just a $20 bill â€” but one that had much meaning to someone running a small business like his.
CENTRAL FALLS â€” The city is about to exit state-managed bankruptcy but how much will it cost local taxpayers when it does?
That was a question debated at Wednesday eveningâ€™s public hearing at the high school on the state receiverâ€™s 5-year budget plan for city finances in thewake of its 13-month long bankruptcy. About 18 people attended the hearing, many representing groups affected by the receivership.
LINCOLN â€” Free food for blood was the deal during a blood drive at Lincoln Mall that day, but Maxine Renning wasnâ€™t allowed to donate â€” she was running a slight temperature.
Renning, then 18, had such a hankering for a slice of pizza she did the next best thing. She offered up a cheek swab, providing a sample of her DNA to a bone marrow registry.
And today a woman in Chicago is alive because of it.
