Police Log


Tuesday, Oct. 1 — At 12:18 a.m., police were called to Haverhill Street because the caller’s estranged husband “is outside with a friend banging on the door. She would like them removed from the property.” Police at the scene reported that the “subject was returning a pet and that’s why she was at the home.”

At 7:24 p.m., a Walker Avenue resident called police to report his ex-wife “called him to say she was coming over to lay down the law to him regarding (their daughter).”

Wednesday, Oct. 2 — At 4:32 p.m., police were called to Sunset Rock Road to investigate a house alarm signaling a glass break. The officer reported that the “glass appeared to have been broken by a bird.”

Thursday, Oct. 3 — At 2:13 p.m., police responded to School Street to meet the Department of Public Works on site to “take a report of some damaged vehicles.” A DPW-operated street line painter was driving down the road when a hose used to move pumped paint burst, causing white line paint to spray onto two parked vehicles. The owners of the vehicles were both called.

Monday, Oct. 7 — At 12:36 p.m., police were called to Haverhill Street after receiving a 911 call for a 20-year-old man "with a cut on his hand from a fight." Police later reported that the injury was "from hitting a door, not from the assault."

At 4:17 p.m., a person walked into the station, reporting that he found a $100 bill on the ground, and that he would prefer "if it goes unclaimed, to donate it to charity."

Wednesday, Oct. 9 — At 3:59 p.m., police were called to Carter Lane on a report of "a suspicious male in a white vehicle going door to door with what appears to be a golf club." The officer found that the person, driving a car with a Michigan license plate, was with a "survey analysis company."
