I have expanded my range to cover the entire North Shore of Eastern Massachusetts, as there are quite a few interesting and, dare I say it, comical police log entries this week.
- Someone reported finding a possible counterfeit $5 bill on Saturday around 12:30 p.m. on Pleasant Street.
- Officers spoke to people on Ocean Avenue who were reportedly screaming at cars to slow down as they were driving by on Saturday around 11 p.m.
- A person turned a comic book into the police station after finding it on Washington Street on Monday around 5 p.m. Some child was very sad that day.
- A caller reported a large turtle in the road at Lynnfield Street on Friday around noon. The turtle was gone when animal control arrived.
- Officers responded to a report of a middle aged bald man naked on Washington Street "waving his genitals at the pass traffic," on Monday around 9 p.m. Police didn't find any "males on the street lacking an appropriate level of clothing." I see. Police cover-up, no doubt.
- Officers responded to a report of a cab driver trying to charge passengers twice as much because there were two of them on Tuesday around 2 a.m. on Hancock Street.
- Officers took a report of a caller finding some bandaids in his diary on Wednesday around 5 p.m. on Aborn Street. To-do list: Get bandaids from pharmacy. Also, make sure that the trademark is respected.
- Police responded to a report of a man in a tree in the area of the dog park on North Street on Thursday around 8 p.m. Officers didn't find any man in a tree.
- Officers took a report of a flower pot falling out of a window and hitting a parked car on Monroe Street on Friday around 7:30 p.m.
- An officer wrote a driver a parking ticket on Ropes Street last Wednesday around 1 p.m. The recipient told the police officer he was being disrespectful and acting like the president. Tweeted a picture of the officer with the caption: Sad. Beverly is crime-ridden and the police should be out catching criminals, not ticketing cars.
- A man was told to stop feeding the wildlife, especially the coyotes on Tuesday around noon after received numerous complaints of the issue on McPherson Drive.
