Barrington police detectives and the Rhode Island State Police are investigating an alleged case of video voyeurism by a former X-ray technician at Barrington Urgent Care on Maple Avenue.

The Kilmarx family of 56 Elm Lane writes a letter to the editor on the Jan. 20 break-in, underage drinking party and vandalism that caused '$19,000 damage'.
The owners of the 56 Elm Lane home that was trashed by an underage drinking party on Jan. 20 spoke out this week about the break-in and vandalism in a letter to the editor. The letter, signed by the Kilmarx family (Bob, John, Peter and Elizabeth), was printed in the Barrington Times. It was given a headline: "Local teenagers have caused great pain." In short, the letter describes the entry into the home as a break-in – “forced entry through a window” – and not through an unlocked door as was initially reported by the Barrington police. An initial statement from the 16-year-old girl who has been charged with breaking and entering and malicious vandalism to the home was a lie, the letter states. Evidence and a subsequent confession proved it…
