Andrew W. Gaskell, 32, of 67 Ethan St., Apt. 1, Providence, and Trevor W. Krous Gaskell, 30, of 15 Touisset Road, Warren, were both charged in the investigation that involved several departments, said Det. Lt. William F. McGovern.
Andrew Gaskell was arrested by Bristol Police on three felony shoplifting charges from the Narragansett, North Kingstown and Barrington police departments. North Kingstown Police also arrested Gaskell on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident with personal injuries.
Trevor Krous Gaskell was arrested by Warren Police on a Narragansett Police charge of felony shoplifting.
McGovern said the charges were a result of an investigation of four incidents in which two men entered the Stop & Shop at 91 Point Judith Road to steal formula between June 21 and 28. After a multi-department investigation, North Kingstown Police were able to identify Andrew Gaskell as one of the two men involved, which led to Trevor Krous Gaskell being identified, McGovern said.
The men’s identities were posted on the R.I. Most Wanted list, McGovern said. Andrew Gaskell also was found to be part of a “Bonnie and Clyde” couple involved in a crime spree in 2008 in Florida that included 16 car thefts, burglaries and shopliftings, McGovern said.
Both men were arraigned in Fourth Division District Court in Wakefield before Judge Stephen P. Erickson on Thursday and bail was set at $10,000 each on the Narragansett police charges. The men also were arraigned in Washington County Superior Court this week and are being held without bail at the Adult Correctional Institutions in Cranston, until a felony screening on Aug. 17.
