Over a short period of two days, the Wareham Police Department made a series of arrests. 

On Saturday, August 10, Officer Calib Larue arrested a man after a motor vehicle stop on Cranberry Highway at around 1:40 a.m. He charged Colton Brown, 21, of Leominster, with operating under the influence of alcohol, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, possession of the open container, marked lanes violation, disorderly conduct, and disturbing the peace.

After Brown was placed in custody, police say he began to kick the back windows on the cruiser and yelled for a person walking by to open the cruiser door. During the booking process, he remained uncooperative. Sergeant Herb Noble assisted in the arrest.

At 7:14 p.m., Officer Ryan Gomes arrested Kathleen Frates, 32, of Lakeville, for an active warrant.

At 10:23 p.m., Officer Lorenzo Grosso arrested Samuel Kinney III, 45, of Rochester, on High Street near Center Street for operating under the influence, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, marked lanes violation, and threats to commit a crime.

During the booking process, police say Kinney came out of his seat requesting officers to remove his handcuffs so that he could beat an officer. The officers had to physically restrain him and he continued to verbally threaten the officer.

On Sunday, August 11, at 12:40 a.m., Officer Nate Aronson and Sergeant Herb Noble arrested William Guenette, 50, of Onset, on Locust Street for operating under the influence of alcohol, 3rd offense, and negligent operation of a motor vehicle. Sergeant Noble was in the area for a report of a suspicious auto and stopped the car. During a brief investigation, Guenette showed signs of impairment and was placed under arrest.

Later that morning, Officers Calib Larue and Steve Harrison arrested Joshua Russell, 33, of Onset, for disorderly conduct. Russell was the passenger in a vehicle that was stopped by the officers and he became belligerent during the incident.

At 4 p.m. the same day, Officer Charles Pillsbury and Special Officer Ryan Clark arrested Jason Carvalho, 42, of Taunton, at Water Wizz. Carvalho was told to leave the property for causing a disturbance. He refused to leave and was placed under arrest for disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, and trespassing.

At night, Officer Nate Aronson and Department of Natural Resources Officer Joshua Kimball arrested Thomas Welch, 49, of Onset, on East Boulevard. Officer Kimball saw Welch operating a scooter on a restricted area of the Onset Pier and directed him to stop. Welch refused but was pulled over on East Boulevard, where he was arrested. He is charged with operating under the influence, 3rd offense, failure to stop for police, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, operating with a suspended driver’s license, trespassing with a motor vehicle, and operating after suspension for OUI, while operating under the influence.

At 7.22 p.m., Officers Lorenzo Grosso and Calib Larue arrested Michael D. Winer, 30, of Wareham, for three counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

It was reported that Winer was in the area of Cherry Street threatening people with a knife and yelling racial slurs at them. When officers arrived, Winer went into a trailer on his property and said he would not come out and that he had a dog with him. Officer Nate Aronson arrived as back-up, and the officers ordered the man out.

He finally exited the trailer and was placed under arrest. The incident remains under investigation by detectives and more charges are expected. A knife was recovered from the scene. 

In addition to these arrests, officers also placed an additional 10 people in custody this weekend for incidents that are shielded from public disclosure.
