Police Log: Officers Find Pot While Offering Fugitive His Pants

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


If Ikey Wilson, 27, of 203 Arnold St., Apt. 2, had taken the time to put on some pants before attempting to evade arrest at 10:29 p.m. July 13, he might have chosen duds without a bag of pot in them.

But when police forced open the door to his apartment to make an arrest on six outstanding warrants, they found him in his bedroom, leaning against the door in an attempt to keep the police out, wearing only boxer shorts.

The struggle damaged the bedroom door and ended with Wilson handcuffed. When an officer collected some of his clothes for him to wear to the station, a bag of what was later identified as marijuana was discovered in one pocket, adding possession of marijuana, a felony (based on prior convictions), to what was previously only a series of misdemeanors, along with a charge of resisting arrest.

Police were alerted to Wilson's presence at his home by a caller using the Woonsocket Police Annonymous tip line (401 769-4444), and assembled a team including undercover officers in a perimeter around Willson's apartment building. With officers watching the apartment, a single officer knocked on the front door. An undercover officer watching from the street radioed that he saw Wilson looking out his apartment window, after which the officer knocking called to Wilson to open his door to prevent it from being forced.

Wilson ignored the warning, and the officer forced open the apartment door and began searching the apartment. The undercover officer radioed that Wilson attempted to exit a window but went back inside. That window turned out to be Wilson's bedroom window. When police attempted to enter, Wilson braced himself against the door, ingnoring commands to stop and get down. Officers eventually forced open the door, handcuffed him and made the arrest.

If your so concerned for the little kids in the house then why is weed in the house? He had 6 warrants...Dont blame the cops, Blame him. If he has issues he should get some help not continue to break the law. And wth is "use" ??? Reading that just dropped my IQ a little. Smh
