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 any of you have specific complaints about alleged police misconduct you should stop hiding behind your patch pen names. 1: report it to police internal affairs 2: (because I know you're going to say they do nothing) report it to the State Police 3: call any local news station (reporters love a good police corruption story) or 3: STFU

They should have used their batons to beat a loud tattoo on that pot head's skull and torso! Then he'd have an excuse for puffing medical marijuana.

LA as usual you always come through on facts thanks.
A July 19, 2012 at 08:27 PM

This is why people think your Crooked Woon Police...

haha! Actually, my coworker and I were discussing that just today, John! I don't smoke, but I do buy things in bulk, and an ounce of a dried herbal substance isn't a tiny amount, it's true! I have no idea why that's the cut-off point, but an ounce-bag of something like it is a bulky thing to have crammed into your pocket!
la_mouffette July 20, 2012 at 02:45 AM
Common Sense, that's common sense!

Thank you, Russell.

William D...... You obviously have a lot to learn brother. The state Senate and House approved the legislation this June, however, it does not go into effect until April 1, 2013. So please stop your ignorant rant as you are only polluting the minds of your local populous.
G-Runner July 20, 2012 at 05:47 AM
Yup! after reading this message I sent the editor an email to remove your commenting privileges until you become more informed. You're making statements in which there is no validity and as indicated in my last comment is what makes you ignorant. Or maybe you're just one of those citizens who has an ax to grind with the local police department and will stop at nothing to shed a negative light on them. My only hope is that you never need police assistance.......
Uncle Ben July 20, 2012 at 12:15 PM
GRunner, it sounds like something i'm saying is true, its hurting you like I was there in person, lol baby !!!
Uncle Ben July 20, 2012 at 01:04 PM
Lotus Lily, I seen you say something about the hookers in woonsocket, well thats just another tip off the iceberg if you ask me, they do know who the girls are in the city and whats being done ? absolutely nothing. Its almost they are catering to them. If you pay attention riding in this city, you know who they are too, when you see them and they are Fat, thats because they just got out of jail, and pay attention they lose all that weight in 2 months, and do the same ole things. I know they can do stings to get rid of them, do they ? nope. They have no problem putting a female Officer to catch all the guys who know they can find it here, and arrest the men. Get rid of the girls would be the first thing to do, it sends a message to any would be Hookers wanting to work here. When you ask them why there still here ? they say they have rights, lol thats a joke. Pot is Legal and Prostitution is a Crime Woonsocket Police !!! If you get all the hookers out of here, maybe some of the Pedifiles will go too. Corruption Attracts Corrupted people. We'd be better off having Community Policing.
Loryne July 20, 2012 at 05:50 PM
Russell , call me stupid just one more time. You're real hard behind a computer screen ? why are you trying to come at my neck ?!?! I'm a 17 year old GIRL . What is your problem .

Loryne July 20, 2012 at 06:44 PM
oh , and A , of course I'm not serious lol it was a joke . Sheesh , too soon people ? too soon ? My bad >.< haha
Common Sense July 20, 2012 at 07:56 PM
William, Sometimes it's better to remain silent and be thought of as a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt...marijuana is still ILLEGAL. You must have an awful lot of free time if you can drive around the city monitoring the weight loss programs utilized by prostitutes...or maybe you have to pay for it and are one of their best customers. If people like you didn't use their services they would ply their trade elsewhere and you could move there and make that city that much dumber...
Uncle Ben July 20, 2012 at 08:11 PM
If I remain silent, Woonsocket residents wont have a clue who to vote for in the next Mayoral Election. After seeing the last few incidents and the results of them tell me there is more than just a currupt Police dept. And you can continue to try and intimidate, it wont work, I am an intimidater as well. I know my rights and this is one of them, Freedom of speech, ya don't like what i'm saying, read another comment, or skip it.
Russell Archambault July 20, 2012 at 08:35 PM
hey common sense. william is correct in noticing certain situations in this city. Unfortunately i believe I possess lot more knowledge than he does about this . Now you should take your own advice about staying quiet instead making comments that you just did.Facts: prostitution is on about dozen streets now after the city got them off arnold. They usually work more in the day when safer. .Cops allow until 3AM. Sting operations dont work and are nothing but a big show and more overtime for police.Community policing, call the station to let them know, Ive tried, thats a joke. Police serving, can prove one thing, not going to happen.They have no intention of serving, unless there is an absolute law broken, that they can prove. thats the only public service they serve.
Russell Archambault July 20, 2012 at 08:43 PM
L im not hiding behing a screen name. Never called you stupid.answering your question, on who i think I am, I know I am right on the topic. Not trying to disrespect you in any way, so please don't be angry. A problem that I have is I feel that ive failed trying to educate you in other past post.
Russell Archambault July 20, 2012 at 08:48 PM
L i also can read between the lines quite well. Should I be waiting for the home boys? Im sure ill be waiting a long time on intellectual blogs!
Rob Borkowski (Editor) July 20, 2012 at 09:14 PM
Hi, everyone - Wilson was in fact charged with a felony. Det. Jamie Paone says the felony charge is based on prior convictions for possession. Remember, arrests and charges are not convictions.
P D July 20, 2012 at 09:18 PM
So what are the cops suppose to do? You can't just arrest people for walking around on a street even if they are known to be hookers. Unless you catch them in the act then you have nothing to arrest them for. That's like saying they should arrest someone for doing drugs just because you know they do drugs. Unless they have drugs on them and have a reason to search them, then they can't do anything.
Russell Archambault July 20, 2012 at 09:23 PM
common sense cant find your last blog. looks like it might been taken off. maybe because it didnt make any common sense. try to re post im interested in what you had to say especially about the slum part.
Russell Archambault July 20, 2012 at 09:29 PM
common sense and pd I agree with both your comments about certain things. writing blogs is difficult on trying to make a point. We are all damned either way.
Loryne July 20, 2012 at 09:38 PM
So automatically I'm the type of person who has "home boys" and I "amaze you with my stupidity" thats not calling me stupid ? Okie , I don't know your deal but if you have nothing nice to say don't use my name , dont talk to me , and dont comment on what I say . Seems to me you're only looking to get a rise out of me . Oh, and by the way I don't need you to "educate" me on anything when obviously you yourself need to be educated on a few things first . BTW , I was only kidding about the first post i made on this IF it's any of your business . Of course I'd want someone like that off the streets and I'm glad he's getting what he deserves . >The police are doing their jobs to the best of their ability I'm proud of them , well at least most of them . It's hard to keep a city like this in line . With the exception of a few a-hole cops, I think everything is just fine and dandy . <

L well said, my faith in humanity has been restored! thanks

A August 30, 2012 at 12:25 PM
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
