Police Log: Man Questioned About Break-in Denies It, Admits To Previous Break-In

This arrest information was supplied by the Woonsocket Police Department. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.


Johnny Sanchez, 30, of 320 Bennett St., Apt. 10, may have provided a little too much detail in his denial of a recent break-in at the apartment of a co-worker while talking to  Aug. 29. 

When police asked him in to discuss the Aug. 26 break-in and read him his rights, he said he and the woman in the apartment had recently dated. Prior to the most recent break-in, he said, he saw the woman and another man driving together, so he entered the apartment through a window while they were there. The woman's friend grabbed him by the throat and threw him out, Sanchez said, and he hadn't been back to the apartment since.

The woman whose apartment Sanchez broke into said the two were not dating, and that they were simply co-workers. She confirmed Sanchez had broken into the apartment the previous week after driving past in a car with its headlights turned off. 

Police arrested Sanchez and charged him with the break-in to which he admitted.

I've always thought Johnny was a little impulsive.

the police tricked him into talking. the judge is goint to throw out everything.i wonder if Johnny was read his rights in english or Sanchez was read his rights in spanish, something is confusing here. the whole story is confusing ! was sanchez thrown out through the window? and did he break in while he was still in the car with no headlights on? and how could he see where he was going if in fact there were no headlights on! still many unanswered questions. I think jonny sanchez is very very confused.

Hey genius, the police can "trick" or as what educated people call "interrogate" all they want. If he was read his rights and refused any form of attorney he's out of luck. Do you talk just to talk? Return your law degree
