Jamestown police arrest two accused of forging signatures on gubernatorial forms
JAMESTOWN, R.I. (WLNE) — Jamestown police said Tuesday that they arrested two who are accused of forging signatures on gubernatorial forms.
Police said that Owen Lokey and Gracie Flynn, both who are 18 years old and from North Kingstown, forged signatures on nomination papers on behalf of Zachary Hurwitz, a former candidate for Rhode Island Governor.
Chief Edward Mello said the Canvasser clerk tried verifying the signatures and suspected that they were forged.
Investigators were able to determine that the signatures were forged on the form that Lokey allegedly swore was truthful, said the chief.
Both Lokey and Flynn turned themselves into police at the department’s headquarters and were released with a summons to be arraigned on Friday.
