Halloween weekend was mostly quiet, except …


Halloween weekend was mostly quiet down-Island, police report. Tisbury’s generally festive Halloween night atmosphere was disrupted when police began a search for two young men wanted in connection with an armed assault over a previous debt.

About 8 pm, Monday, Steven “Jamaica” Lampart, 24, of Cromwell Street, Tisbury, and Kevin Hathaway, 22, of Teaberry Lane in Edgartown went to the Daggett Avenue house of Camden Lapierre, where the pair demanded Mr. Lapierre give them money and marijuana, according to the police report. Mr. Lapierre owed Mr. Lampart money for a debt he incurred when the two worked together last summer. During a confrontation on Mr. Lapierre’s porch Mr. Lampart brandished a folding knife, according to the police report.

Mr. Lapierre called police. He said that soon after the two men left, Mr. Lampart telephoned and said that if he did not get his money, “His parents will be picking his body up off the lawn.”

That night police stopped a vehicle in which Mr. Lampart was a passenger and arrested him. Mr. Hathaway was also located and arrested.

Both men were arraigned on charges of armed assault to rob and intimidating a witness.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Lampart remained in the Dukes County Jail on bail of $2,500. Mr. Hathaway was also in jail on bail of $1,000.
