Woonsocket Police Log: Police Seize More Than $5,000 In Cash And Cocaine

A look at police activity around the city from Feb. 11 to Feb. 14.

Stakeout leads to drug arrest

Shannon Supple, 25, of 7 Liberty Hill Drive, Blackstone, MA, was arrested on Saturday after police responded to a call reporting a home invasion at 184 High St. Residents at High Street told police that Supple and Sherron Harris had threatened them with a knife, stole their Playstation 3 wires and left in a black car.

Officers proceeded to the registered address for Harris and although no one was home, a vehicle registered to Supple was parked in the driveway. After a half hour stakeout, the couple returned and a police officer confronted Supple in the driveway. A pat-down turned up 3.5 ounces of cocaine, with a street value of $4,000 and $1,676 cash. Supple was charged with manufacturing/delivery of Schedule I narcotics.

Woman dislikes being followed after intoxicated hit and run

Arlene Bernandi, 23, of 32 Chestnut St., was arrested Sunday after approaching an officer's car during another vehicle's routine traffic stop. Bernandi walked up to a cruiser and told police she was being followed by her ex-boyfriend, but, according to reports, showed signs of severe intoxication and staggered back to her vehicle. Officers spoke to the driver of the vehicle stopped behind Bernandi's, Keon Averett. Averette said he was following Bernandi because she hit his vehicle while leaving the bar, Our Pad, and drove away. Police found little damage on Averette's car and he left the scene.

Bernandi reportedly failed sobriety tests and was brought back to the station. While being read her rights, Bernandi reportedly began screaming and refused to cooperate, kicking Lt. Brooks in the groin, according to reports. She was charged with DUI (first offense) and assault.
