WARWICK, RI — At 2:30 p.m. Dec. 27 2019, WPD Sgt. Randy Francis was called to the Warwick Police Headquarters lobby at 99 Veterans Memorial Drive to speak with a woman turning herself in on a warrant for sale/concealment of rental property.

 

According to Warwick Police records, the matter was first brought to officers’ attention on Oct. 24, when the manager of the Rent-A-Center at 1800 Post Road had reported that Ebony Johnston, 33 of 12 Sutton Ln., apt. 102, North Kingston, had failed to pay for or return several rental items.

The manager told Officer Austin Charles that Johnson had rented a living room set worth $2,433.01 and a washer and dryer worth $2,339.52.

The manager told Charles that Johnson had failed to respond to several phone calls and certified mail letters attempting to reach her about the unpaid bills and requesting the property back.

 

Charles issued a warrant for Johnson’s arrest on a felony charge of Sale or Concealment of Leased Personal Property.

 

Francis booked Johnson and held her until the next bail commission hearing.
