Wareham Police made several arrests for outstanding warrants and recovered a stolen car this week.

On Wednesday, July 4, Officers Eric Machado and Richard Robidoux responded to a call for a stolen car parked at a playground on Hathaway Street. The car was reported stolen on Friday, June 29.

Upon arrival, multiple persons were detained. The driver of the stolen car, Krystopher Lopes-Rattigan, 30, of Wareham was arrested and charged with receiving a stolen motor vehicle. The other parties were released and the vehicle was returned to the owner.

On Tuesday, July 3, Officer Nate Aronson arrested Ashley Lynch, 26, of Weymouth, on Sandwich Road. Lynch had two warrants out for her arrest. She was transported to police headquarters for processing and was held without bail pending her appearance at Wareham District Court.

Later that day, Machado also arrested Eduardo Fernandez III, 37, of Wareham, at the Woods at Wareham complex who was ordered held without bail.

Police said Fernandez became enraged when he learned he was being held without bail and broke a piece of Plexiglas used to cover the inside of the cell door.

The piece was broken in such a way that it could be used as a weapon, prompting Sgt. Daniel Flaherty and Officer Calib Larue to enter the cell. Fernandez had to be physically subdued, police said.

A few minutes later, Fernandez covered the cell light with a blanket, making it impossible for officers to view him by camera. Officers again entered the cell once again and Fernandez became combative. A Taser was used to subdue him and all items were removed from the cell.

In addition to the warrant, Fernandez, is now facing an additional charges for vandalizing property.

On Thursday, July 5, Officer Robert McLain arrested Richard Monteiro, 29 of Wareham in the parking lot of Flagship Cinema on an active warrant.

So glad they caught these thugs. Woods at Wareham again, I wonder why there is so much trouble from that PROJECT. Mr Gannon says that these PROJECTS are occupied by wonderful people and we should rejoice in the fact we are getting 150 more units of model citizens with Warehams best interests in mind. I wonder if Eduardos baby momma came up with bail.

One time a few ants with wings crawled out from under the refrigerator at work.  I quickly stomped them dead.  Within a moment, a few more crawled out and I stomped them dead too.  They kept coming and I kept stomping.  It appeared neverending until finally I stopped them all by pouring a borax mixture under there.  These vermin like people keep coming like the ants under that fridge!  We need a whole bunch of borax!


Thanks Wareham Police for the valiant effort lately at catching these undesirables.  But they just keep coming!  Scary to think that there are so many!  Like worthless ants they need to be eradicated to make sure they don't come back!


Oh yea, young Ashley, just 26...look at yourself...you look twice that.  Hard living is rough on the looks there kiddo.  Consider straightening your pathetic self out, you still have time!  How sad it is to see these wretched examples of human life every time we look at Wareham's news.
