Division Street Woman with History of Confrontation with Greenwich P&Z Faces Multiple Charges

Greenwich Police responded to 19 Division Street in attempt to serve an arrest warrant for Saima Qamar on Friday, Aug 5 at about 7:30pm.

Ms. Qamar, a notable presence at Planning & Zoning and Zoning Board of Appeals meetings at Greenwich Town Hall, has confronted commissioners since her P&Z application for an addition to her Division Street home was rejected in July 2015  – she was represented by Eric Brower – and she was arrested at Town Hall.

On Friday, officers met with Ms. Qamar, 46,  who was subsequently placed under arrest and transported to Greenwich Police headquarters for processing.

While there, Saima refused to be fingerprinted. She was subsequently processed under for Refusing to be Fingerprinted, Criminal Trespass 1st degree and Disorderly Conduct.

She was released from Greenwich Police headquarters on a Promise to Appear in  Stamford Superior Court on August 12, 2016.
