Wareham Police made three arrests on Saturday and Sunday on a variety of charges.

Alexander Moustafa of Midlothian, VA

Police allege that a Virginia man lied about his identity, drank from a nip bottle in front of officers and called himself “Tyler Swabby” before being arrested on multiple charges on Sunday, Sept. 2nd.

Alexander Moustafa, age 27, of Midlothian, Virginia, was charged with trespassing, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, providing a false Social Security number during the course of an arrest, interfering with the duties of a police officer and being fugitive from justice.

Officers responded at approximately 6 p.m. to the Wareham Fire Department on Main Street on report of an unwanted party. At the scene, Officers Calib Larue and Charles Pillsbury found Moustafa. Wareham Fire officials asked if he needed assistance prior to police arrival, and the man said, “no.” Police noted that Moustafa had been removed from the fire station earlier in the day, but had returned.

Police said Moustafa acted erratically, pacing around the lobby, and identified himself as Tyler Swabby. Officers found his identification, which had his proper name. When confronted by officers, Moustafa said: “I lied because I may have a warrant in Virginia for hitting a cop.” 

Moustafa then walked out of the fire station, but declined to leave the grounds. He then reportedly pulled out a nip bottle and began drinking alcohol in front of the officers. Whereupon, he was arrested.

During the course of the investigation, police ascertained that there was a warrant for his arrest from Rhode Island. Wareham Police report that calls to both the Virginia State Police and the Chester County Virginia police revealed no active warrants from Virginia for Moustafa.

Wanda Apontefrias of Middleborough

At about 6:45 p.m. on Saturday, Officer Nate Aronson was running radar on Cranberry Highway near Red Brook Road. He stopped a car for speeding and issued a citation to Wanda Apontefrias, age 28, of Middleborough. After the citation was issued, police assert that the subject stepped out of the car and became argumentative with Aronson. The officer told her several times to return to her car. However, she refused to co-operate and her belligerence escalated to the point where she was threatened with arrest. After several warnings, Ms/ Apontefrias was arrested.

Poice alleged that the subject resisted violently and Officer Aronson ended up on the ground, where Apontefrias was subdued with assistance from Officer Blaise Lalli.

There was a small child in the car that was cared for and brought to the police station by Special Officer Madison Burrell until the Department of Children and Families arrived to assist.

Ms. Apontefrias was charged with, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, resisting arrest, and speeding.

Angela Antone of Falmouth

Wareham Police arrested a Angela Antone, age 50, of Falmouth on Saturday after she allegedly kicked an officer following a sobriety test.

Ms. Antone is charged with operating under the influence of alcohol, assault and battery on a police officer, operating to endanger and other charges after an incident near the Onset VFW Post.

At about 1 a.m., police received a call regarding a woman attempting to drive while intoxicated. After an investigation, which included field sobriety tests, officers determined that they must arrest her for being impaired. As she was being arrested, Antone began to resist by pulling away and then kicking Officer Robert Mclain.

While being booked at the police station, police allege that Antone became violent again and had to be restrained by officers.
