Officer's 'Sixth Sense' Leads to an Arrest in Wilton

Wilton Police logs for May 29 - June 5. Arrest information does not indicate a conviction.

Driving with a suspended license to police HQ

5/30: Police arrested Paul C. Osawke of Mountain Road in Wilton on charges of driving with a suspended license and failure to return a suspended license after the accused allegedly drove to the Wilton Police Department to speak with officers about another, different matter, police reports say. He was released on a promise to appear in court.

Embezzlement Charges

6/1: Police arrested Bonnie Piro-Rivera, 39, of Tremont Ave. in Bridgeport on charges stemming from an investigation where the accused is alleged to have “embezzled money from her place of employment” by offering customers a cash-only discount for services, police reports state. The accused is said to have worked at a Wilton-based dentist’s office and accepted cash payments from a 44 year-old customer while subsequently stealing the cash and pretending to run the payment as a credit card transaction, police said. The accused is also charged with stealing some old gold dental crowns, worth about $120, and selling the crowns at a scrap metal shop, according to police. The accused is charged with stealing $1,850 worth of cash; police said these ‘discount’ transactions only occurred with one customer. The accused is charged with fourth-degree and sixth-degree larceny and was given a $5,000 bond, reports state.

Officer’s ‘sixth sense’ pull-over leads to arrest

6/2: A police cruiser noticed a vehicle driving with a spare donut tire on Rte. 7 near Sharp Hill at about 6:15 p.m. The officer began following the car and ran the vehicle’s plates; returning information stated that the vehicle’s registered owner had a warrant out of New Milford for a larceny charge and another warrant from Conn. State Police regarding several motor vehicle charges, police said. Upon subsequent inspection,  the driver, Paige Neukom, 21, of Bacon Road in Roxbury, was found to have a pill of crushed suboxone in his wallet, according to police. Police charged the accused with possession of a controlled substance and then released the accused to the New Milford police department.

When asked why the officer began following the car, Captain John Lynch said that the donut tire may have tipped off the investigating officer.

“Sometimes [officers] just have a sixth-sense,” said Lynch.

A donut spare tire on a car gives a cop in Wilton a reason to have a "sixth sense" about the driver?? Wow - wonder if the driver was EATING a real donut in the car. Maybe that would give this cop a a sixth sense to head to Dunkin' Donuts to shmooze with his pals for an hour or so on taxpayer dollars! Afterall, this is the favorite hangout of the local cops in Fairfield county - no matter which town you go to the Dunkin' Donuts parking lot will ALWAYS have a few police cars in the lot. They say it's because the coffee is "so good". LOL - I say it's because they are slacking off on the job once again! I am contemplating a documentary on this subject: "The love affair of Cops in America with coffee and donuts from Dunkin". I wish I was able to have so many coffee breaks during my work day. If I could, I'd go to Dunkin Donuts because it's got to be safe with all the cops hanging out there all the time!

You must be a cop Mario - aren't you the one in Greenwich who failed his exams but tried to get the top dog job a few years ago? You have the vocabulary of a 3 yr old and your anger and hostility levels are off the charts. Definitely a cop. I don't think I've ever read such trash in my life. You're the loser you dumb bozo!!!

Yes Sushi you nailed it buddy. That's me. You think the above is hostile?! That was tame. No threats upon your physical well-being or anything. What kind of pacifist are you??? That wasn't hostile..., ignorance is bliss which leads me to believe you are one happy individual!!! Let's meet and talk it over at Dunkin. Vocabulary of a three year old? Wow! You hurt me with that one. Bad. Real bad.

When did they out of the lunatic asylum Mario? Or maybe I should ask why? No threats upon my physical well being? Considering I'm half way across the globe today, I'm hardly worried about you and your pure evilness. So angry and defensive about the cops and the dunkin donuts comment, perhaps you're a tad bit off kilter (understatement of the year) because someone else is on your case to lay off the fatty foods on tax payer time and dollars. It really isn't what the good people of CT deserve you know. They pay you to work Mario, to do a job, c'mon man. You know, big guy? Time you lived up to your potential out there. Got to be something inside that bastion of manliness exterior. Such a tough guy flexing your cowardly muscle behind a fake name. Show us some substance.......you gotta beef no doubt but where is YOUR beef? When you figure it out, maybe you can rear your ugly head again. Do us all a favor until then, and go away!!

I have a sixth sense that Mario is a cop and needs a bar of soap in his mouth if not a demotion. Anger and hostility is so unbecoming of law enforcement agents. Disorderly conduct here is an understatement. Thanks to Patch for removing his venomous remarks - unfit for the general public.
