Break and enter

In early May, the Jamestown Police discovered new information in the investigation of a house break-in that occurred in March of 2006 on Walcott Avenue. This information led to the Jamestown police obtaining an arrest warrant to charge Neves with breaking and entering a dwelling.
Neves was also charged with distributing a controlled substance. This charge was the result of a month-long joint investigation involving the Jamestown, Newport, and Little Compton police departments in March of 2007. During the course of the investigation Neves was observed allegedly selling marijuana in Jamestown, police said.
On July 14, Neves was arraigned at the police station on the aforementioned charges. He was also presented as an alleged probation violator and is being held at the ACI pending future court appearances, according to police.
