A Cranston man was issued a No Trespass Order from a Warwick Chipotle after refusing to wear a mask.

At 12:35 p.m., Dec. 27, Warwick Police responded to the Chipotle, 1800 Post Road, to investigate “the report of a customer who was refusing to wear his mask indoors,” according to a Warwick Police incident report.

Police spoke to the Chipotle manager who told them that a customer, later identified as Edwin Barrios, 19, of 60 Lincoln Ave., Cranston, entered the property without a mask.

“Masterson stated that Barrios refused to leave to get a mask even after being spoken to by management,” Warwick Police Officer Nicholas E. Demarco wrote in the report. “At that time (the manager) called for police assistance after Barrios refused to leave.”

Police spoke to Barrios, who told them he would leave the property when he got a refund for his food, according to the report.

Police asked Chipotle management if they would refund Barrios’ money. Management said they would offer a refund, but the customer “would not give his name when … asked.”

Police provided the manager with the name “Edwin,” and they located his order to complete the refund.

“Management requested that I notify Barrios that Chipotle would like him trespassed from Chipotle,” Demarco wrote. “I walked back over to Barrios and asked for his name, (to) which he replied ‘I think my first name is good enough.’”

Police advised Barrios that he was “being No Trespassed from Chipotle, and that he needed to be properly identified for the report.” Barrios refused to hand over his identification.

“Barrios was being highly uncooperative, and refused to give us his last name or ID upon multiple requests,” Demarco wrote. Barrios eventually handed police his license and they completed the paperwork issuing him a No Trespass Order.


At 11:15 a.m.., Dec. 29, Warwick Police Officer Jacob T. Elderkin was on routine patrol on East Avenue westbound, in the area of Kohl’s, when he observed a 2011 Ford Explorer “operating in the slow speed lane,” according to the police incident report.

“Upon observing this vehicle I noticed the vehicle to have a large spider web shaped crack in his windshield that was obstructing the operators view,” Elderkin wrote. “I then ran the vehicles registration tag and learned that the registered owner Jonathan Perry … had numerous felony warrants to include bench warrants and affidavit warrants out of Coventry and East Greenwich.”

Elderkin activated his emergency lights and sirens and conducted a vehicle stop in front of the Kohl’s store. Perry’s SUV stopped; Elderkin exited his cruiser and approached the vehicle.

“When I got to the drivers door Perry started to cry and then took off from the car stop,” Elderkin wrote. “I then ran back to my patrol car and updated dispatch that the vehicle had taken off from my traffic stop. I was able to maintain a visual on the suspect car due to heavy traffic at the intersection of East Ave and Bald Hill Road.”

Perry’s vehicle was stuck in congested traffic.

“I again pulled behind the vehicle and yelled to Perry to place his hands out of the window and to shut his car off,” Elderkin wrote. “Due to the fact that he could not go anywhere because of the standstill traffic, the male complied and shut the vehicle off and placed his hands out of the open window.”

Elderkin took Perry, 39, of 26 Park Lane, Coventry, into custody.

Backup arrived on the scene. Perry was searched, cuffed and placed in the back of a cruiser.

“Perry stated that he took off from the traffic stop due to knowing he had numerous warrants for his arrest,” Elderkin wrote in the report. “A search of his vehicle revealed numerous hypodermic needles, clear plastic baggies that were twisted off and had residual residue from once containing narcotics. Perry admitted to being addicted to narcotics and stated that fentanyl was his drug of choice.”

The SUV was towed from the scene. Perry was transported back to Warwick Police headquarters for processing.

Perry was charged with one count of Reckless Eluding, and was issued a violation for the windshield crack. Coventry and East Greenwich Police were notified that Perry could be found at the courthouse.
