Police Log: Tipster Alerts Police To Burglary Suspect

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


On July 12, Woonsocket Police responded to 82 Grand St. at noon to speak with Ken Dube, who said his mother's house there had just been broken into.

Dube said he arrived at the home at 11:30 a.m. to find a person he recognized as Peter Daignault, 21, leaving the apartment. Since Daignault doesn't live there, Dube chased him down Grand Street and onto Logee Street, but lost sight of him, he said.

When Dube returned to the home, he found a window had been opened, with the blinds disturbed as if someone had just crawled through. He said his wallet, containing $100, was missing, and that he wanted to file a complaint.

On Sept. 17, Woonsocket Police received a tip from an anonymous caller telling them that Daignault, who now had a warrant for his arrest for the break-in as well as two warrants for larceny of more than $1,500, was at 357 Park Ave., apt. 2R, where he was living.

Officer Matthew Oliver went to the address, and was met at the door by a woman. He asked if Daignault was there, and she said yes, though Daignault was visible from the door, rolling a cigarette in the living room. 

Oliver asked Daignault his name and birthdate, and he responded, confirming he was the man police were looking for. He was arrested and transported to Woonsocket Police headquarters.

Daignault was charged with breaking and entering and two counts of larceny of more than $1,500.
