A Norwalk woman heard knocking but refused to open the door to her apartment Tuesday afternoon to let in a worker. A short while later, her landlord let him in. The worker allegedly knocked over a table and picture frames, and broke a vase.
Edgar Kinkead, 66, was arrested and charged with criminal mischief. There was no bond. Kinkead, the property superintendent, is working on the woman's apartment at 86 Woodward St. to meet Health Department standards. He continued to yell at the tenant after Norwalk police arrived, police say. Kinkead told officers he knocked over the table because the tenant had stolen items from him, including a drill, money and an $800 engagement ring, which he had left in the apartment. The broken vase was worth $20.
Also on the police blotter:
Police patrolling Bouton Street at about 7 p.m. thought they spotted narcotics being sold among a group of men. They questioned several of the men, asking whether they had any weapons or illegal drugs. One said he had just gotten out of the shower and put on clean clothes but didn't know what was in his pockets.
Daniel White, 36, was patted down. Police say they found two ziplock bags of marijuana. White was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession near a school. Bond was set a $5,000.
