Posted

PORTSMOUTH — A local man who was seen allegedly looking into vehicles on Bristol Ferry Road on Monday afternoon, Nov. 7, was subsequently charged with disorderly conduct.

According to police, officers responded to 250 Bristol Ferry Road after getting a call for service at 1 p.m. The caller reported that a man was walking in the area of the residence and looking into vehicles on the property, according to police. 

When confronted by one of the vehicle owners the man, later identified as Steven Joseph Roderiques, 41, of 165 Mill Lane, began to yell profanities “while rapidly closing the distance between himself and one of the reporting parties in an aggressive and threatening manner,” according to police.

Roderiques was directed to leave the property and he eventually complied, walking southbound on Bristol Ferry Road, where he was stopped by officers, police said. Roderiques continued yelling profanities at officers, who arrested him, police said.
