Rhode Island carjacking suspect arrested in Connecticut


CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island police say an ex-inmate accused of carjacking a vehicle occupied by a mother and her 1-year-old son has been arrested in Connecticut.

Cranston police said Wednesday night that Jerry Cintron, who last lived in Pawtucket, was arrested Tuesday. He was taken into custody without incident at a Wal-Mart in Lisbon, Connecticut.

The 33-year-old Cintron was sought on an arrest warrant for robbery related to an alleged robbery of the hair salon and carjacking on March 29.

Cintron was arraigned Wednesday in Norwich, Connecticut, as a fugitive from justice. Police say he waived extradition. It was not known Thursday if he’s represented by a lawyer.

He had been recently released from the Adult Correctional Institution and was on probation.

Cranston police say they will return Cintron to Rhode Island Friday for arraignment.
