Anglers Suspected of RI Reservoir Break-In Attempt


Young would-be fishermen may be to blame for vandalism reported last week at the locked gate to the Harold E. Watson Reservoir outflow area [in Little Compton, Rhode Island].

The Newport Water Authority alerted police on Tuesday, October 15, to a damaged lock and aluminum grate that someone had apparently tried to pry loose. Joe Roque, supervisor of distribution and collection for the water authority, said that while the lock was damaged, it does not appear that anyone got in.
