Relatively benign this week, if you don't count the woman who doesn't know how to stop, the verbal fighting over a tree, the very noisy directorial début, and the burglary on Cod Almighty.

Thursday, August 17

  • Police responded to a report of a woman being harassed via email on Aug. 17. A voicemail was left by an officer for the man to stop the harassment.

  • A woman received both a citation and a verbal warning on the same day on Tedesco Street and Longview Drive for a red light violation. The second situation involved not stopping at a stop sign. This person seems to have difficulty in stopping.

  • An officer responded after a woman bumped her car into another. There was no damage on either car. The woman in the second car got out and started screaming at the driver, took her information, but wouldn't give her own. The reporter felt intimidated by the second driver and reported the incident.

  • A Yeti cooler was reported stolen from a man's boat on Salem Harbor. You mean there is a special cooler for Abominable Snowmen? Who knew?

  • An anonymous caller reported a man on Mechanic Court was yelling and screaming, and yelling racial slurs. It had been going on for 10 minutes. Officers responded. The man and his household were making a movie about the recent attacks in Charlottesville and the reporter didn't know that and thought that they were having an argument. Showing in all reputable theaters at some point.

Friday, August 18

  • A pedestrian was struck by a truck and transported to the hospital on Beacon and Green Streets. The hospital is not on Beacon and Green Streets. The hospital is in Salem. The reporter seems to have difficulty with location.

  • A woman reported a man going through her trash. She said she puts out her Amazon bags with all her credit card info on them. She will invest in a shredder and has yelled at the man to move along. She did not want a response. And neither do we.

Saturday, August 19

  • A woman called the department upset because "when she came in last week, the call was logged and that the newspaper brought out her complaint [in a police log] from 3 years ago and published it again. She apologized to the man who was involved today and was going to go to the paper to tell them it wasn't fair that they brought up her complaint from 3 years ago. So the police are responsible for a journalistic mixup?

  • Two neighbors on Pitman Road were reported verbally fighting over a tree. At least it was only verbal.

  • A boat was broken into on Salem Harbor. Tuna reels and other equipment were reported as stolen on a boat named the Cod Almighty. The Harbormaster has been notified. Great Balls of Fire!.

Here we go again. As one lady found out, Google is your friend.

  • Someone called police on Thursday around 11 a.m. to report a car that had "hovered" around the caller's property. The caller followed the car to Nanepashemet Street where the people got out and started jogging, which the caller found suspicious. Police found the joggers were friends of the caller's neighbor. The moral of the story: don't let your houseguests jog.

  • Someone walked into the police station to turn in a knapsack that fell off the back of a motorcycle as it was turning last Thursday around 5 p.m.

  • Police responded to a report of a suspicious white bag or package on Atlantic Avenue on Friday around 2 p.m. Officers found it was a bag of leftovers. Obviously, must be leftovers. They were left.

  • Officers took a report of a trash barrel on Village Street with a note for the trash men to take the barrel because there was a dead animal inside. The caller said the barrel was crawling with maggots. Hope you're not eating a meal.

  • A sailboat capsized in the harbor on Sunday around 2 p.m., stranding four teen passengers in lifejackets on a rock. The Harbormaster picked them up. I read the story around this. The water was quite choppy so the Harbourmaster used an inflatable to reach the teens. A very fine effort!

  • Police responded to a report of an older driver in a white Mercedes who got stuck on the beach on Gas House Lane on Sunday around 9 p.m. when "looking for 114." 114 is the number of the fastest route out of town. Just sayin'.

  • Officers took a report of a swastika graffiti'd on the softball field on Humphrey Street on Monday around 11 a.m. This is serious stuff, and the constabulary is following it up very well.

  • Police took a report of a man in a gray car who reportedly pulled up alongside a woman walking in the area of Ocean Avenue, and told her he was an exhibitionist on Tuesday around 6 p.m. He asked if she "wanted to watch," and she told him she didn't know what he was talking about. The man told her to look it up, and when she did she said it was inappropriate, and he drove off. Most exhibitionists don't ask the permission of their victims. This one was quite kind, in a way. And Google was her friend.

It's been a hot week in Marblehead, Massachusetts.

  • Police responded to a report of vessels firing cannons at each other on the harbor last Friday around 11:30 a.m. in honor of "Pirate Day." Arrrrrr!

  • Officers took a report of a person locked in the dump on Saturday around 4 p.m. I have heard of "Down in the dumps" but this takes the cake.

  • A driver saw a boat cushion fly out of a boat that was being towed in the area of West Shore Drive on Friday around 6:30 p.m. The driver took the cushion to the police station.

  • Police took a report of a driver that was approached while driving on Stramski Way by a black Mercedes, the driver of which got out of the car and asked if the caller wanted to get "[sic] up" and then hit the car with his fist on Friday around 10:30 p.m.

  • Someone called police to report teens drinking and peeing on the street in the area of Humphrey Street and Sevinor Road on Saturday around midnight. Officers found teens that said they had just left a graduation party. We only tossed our caps in the air.

  • Police took a report of a snapping turtle in the middle of the street on West Shore Drive on Tuesday around 7 a.m. The turtle made it onto someone's lawn. I wouldn't want to be the owner of THAT lawn.

  • A landscaper called police to report a woman harassing him on Wednesday around 2:30 p.m. in the area of Bayview Road, following him and filming him, saying he's killing the bees. Apicide isn't encouraged, but neither is stalking.

  • XXX, 73, of Everett, was arrested on charges of lewd, wanton, and lascivious conduct on Wednesday after police were called to Ocean Avenue on a report of a man fondling himself on the beach.

It's been a busy week in Marblehead for the constabulary.

  • Police took a report of a driver that went on a "tirade" against some cyclists last Wednesday around 8 a.m. after one of the cyclists asked him where he was going in the area of Front and Circle streets.

  • An officer picked up roughly 10 hypodermic needles on Thursday around 3:30 p.m. after a caller reported seeing them in the area of Winthrop Avenue.

  • Officers responded to a report of an SUV doing donuts at the beach on Ocean Avenue last Thursday around 10 p.m. I suppose that any report involving do(ugh)nuts might attract the attention of the constabulary.

  • Mr X, 23, of Marblehead, was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest on Sunday around 9 p.m. after police responded to a report of a man rollerblading or skateboarding in an Atlantic Avenue church parking lot, mooning the priest after a confrontation. I don't suppose the priest was fazed by this. The information omitted from this report is that the church parking lot is directly across the street from the cop shop. They could hardly have missed it.

  • Officers took a report of an aggressive driver on Tuesday around 9 a.m. The caller said the drivers passed him over the double yellow line in the area of Lafayette Street, and got out at a red light, tried to open the driver's door, and screamed at him.

  • Police responded to a report of a group of kids smoking pot in the woods behind the school on Humphrey Street on Thursday around 7:30 a.m. The caller reported the kids were smoking cigarettes. Shouldn't make a difference. Lock 'em up!

  • A caller reported finding broken windows and glass in his backyard on Shetland Road along with lacrosse balls and hockey pucks on Thursday around 11:30 a.m.

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.
chrishansenhome: (Default)
  • A caller reported a woman in a "hot pink outfit" jumping out into traffic trying to catch a ride near Jersey Street on Wednesday around 3 p.m. Officers did not find the woman. "Hot pink outfit". I suppose that makes a difference. If she were wearing a long black dress it wouldn't have been remarkable.

  • Someone turned in a set of Infiniti car keys with a house key attached on Thursday morning after they were found somewhere on Washington Street.

  • Officers retrieved a bike after it was stolen from CVS on Thursday around 3 p.m. A walk in reported that she saw a boy put a bike over her wall, said it was his and that he would be back for it. Police determined it was the stolen bike. The Marblehead Police, years ago, took my report that my bike was stolen. It took them months to determine that they'd found it and given it back to the kid who sold it to me.

  • Police made a driver go back and pick up his trash after he was seen littering in the area of Atlantic and Ocean avenues on Friday around 9:30 a.m. But the Marblehead constabulary, while not being the most efficient at getting used bikes back, are great at keeping the streets clean.

  • Officers took a report of a silver tray and square roasting pan missing from a Green Street home on Saturday around 11 a.m.

  • Someone reported a Maserati going 100 mph on Sewall Street on Sunday around 11 a.m.

  • Police responded to a report of a man hiding behind a tree on Pleasant Street around midnight on Sunday.

  • A caller reported a sound of tapping a Locust Street home on Monday around 2 a.m. Officers found that the sound was coming from a skunk. I always thought that skunks made their presence known in other, rather more objectionable ways.

  • Police took a report of a camp fire and "drinking party" in Steer Swamp, where there are bottle strewn around on Wednesday around 8 a.m.

Well, some of them have been at it again in Marblehead.

  • A woman reported losing $7,000 of cash in an envelope on Wednesday around 8 a.m. Why am I never around when $7,000 cash is lying around?

  • Someone walked into the police station last Wednesday around 8:30 a.m. with an item found on Devereux Beach he thought could be an explosive. Police asked him to take the item out of the station and leave it on the curb, and later determined it was a piece of fishing equipment. The fisherman went out with a bang, I suppose. At least it didn't go off in the police station.

  • A tree stump was misidentified as a person in camouflage last Thursday morning near Pleasant Street. That's better than a person being misidentified as a tree stump.

  • Police issued a verbal warning to a driver doing donuts in an Ocean Avenue parking lot last Thursday around 5 p.m.

  • Officers took a report of an Evans Road home and two vehicles egged, possibly around 3:30 a.m. on Monday.

  • Someone reported objects – possibly furniture – in the middle of the road near Gregory and Barnard streets on Monday around 2 p.m. Cardinal Biggles has been around again torturing people with soft furnishings, I'll bet.

  • Police responded to a report of two kite surfers in the water in Marblehead Harbor on Monday around 6:30 p.m. and one looking distressed. Authorities found that both parties were okay.

Have a great weekend.

Well, we have a few interesting reports from the Marblehead, Massachusetts constabulary.

  • Police took a report of a male driver in his 50s tailgating a woman with her children around Pleasant Street last Thursday morning and making "very lewd gestures" with his hand. Officers left a voicemail for the suspected driver.

  • XXX, 23, of Marblehead, was arrested on charges of malicious destruction of property, breaking and entering in the daytime, and larceny from a building last Thursday evening after a report of windows broken on Leicester Road.

  • Someone turned in a ring found near the swingsets at Devereux Beach on Friday morning.

  • Officers took a report of someone who mixed coffee with salt and "has now learned her lesson" on Saturday afternoon. And a valuable lesson it is, too!

  • Someone reported a porta potty had tipped over on Alden Road on Sunday around 11 a.m. and the caller was concerned that "kids will play in it." Officers responded to the area, but didn't foresee any children playing in it. Marblehead kids are hella smart. They know not to play in overturned porta potties.

  • Police took a report of a passenger refusing to pay for a cab ride because the driver closed the door on his hand on Thursday night. Officers told the passenger he couldn't refuse to pay for service. But the passenger could charge the cabbie with assault, no?

Busy couple of days in Marblehead for the constabulary.

  • Someone stole Santa: A Johns Road resident reported that he had heard a noise outside on Friday night, and when he looked out his 3-foot tall plastic Santa was taken. Santa was not recovered. Thousands of children have now had their Christmases irretrievably destroyed.

  • Officers responded to Prince Street on Sunday, Dec. 11, on a call of a Toyota that hit three parked cars around 8 a.m.

  • Someone called police last Monday around 7 p.m. to report the Christmas lights at the lighthouse on Lighthouse Lane were out. The bulb-snatcher must have been in the vicinity.

  • Someone reported a 14K gold open link bracelet lost sometime last week, possibly in the area of Jersey Street.

  • Someone reported on Friday around 4 p.m. that a $50 laser light show was taken from their yard on Sewall Street.That bulb-snatcher must have been very busy.
  • Two men allegedly punched a car window as it was making a right turn on a green light near School Street on Friday around 5 p.m. One of the men was walking a dog and had a beard and blue hoodie, according to the driver. Police report no damage was done to the car.

  • Mr Y, 25, of Salem, was arrested on charges of assault with a deceptive weapon device after he allegedly showed an air soft gun during an incident on Pleasant Street on Sunday around 1:30 a.m.

  • 1:06 p.m. "Crematory remains" were found on a trail along Lafayette Street. Mom burned the turkey again.

  • 3:09 p.m. Someone broke into a shrink-wrapped boat on Lincoln Avenue and stole a propeller and medical kits. The thief left behind a half-eaten donut and wrapper, the boat owner reported. CSI Boston needs to investigate. I just hope it wasn't a cop.

  • 2:35 p.m. A female was found passed out on Clifton Avenue.

  • 8:10 p.m. A caller on Bayview Road reported hearing three gunshots. Police checked the scene and found nothing.

  • 9:13 p.m. A Mystic Road woman said she received threatening texts from her "soon-to-be ex-husband." Perhaps she could get the son with a BB gun to take the case.

  • 9:36 p.m. A Washington Street resident said "there is a male party with no shirt attempting to fight people." Officers responded and restored the peace. Could this be the gentieman who is the soon-to-be ex-husband?

  • 10:55 p.m. A "belligerent" drunk man was denied access to a Pleasant Street establishment.

  • 11:17 p.m. Three "drunk people stumbling down" were reported on Pleasant Street.

The Marblehead Police Log can be quiet for months, then two days in a row it comes up with doozies.

Mon., Oct. 3

  • 9:23 a.m. Treasury Department phone call scam reported on Batchelder Road.

Tue., Oct. 4

  • 8:24 a.m. A landscaping crew on Harbor Avenue said a neighbor "sprayed them with a garden hose" for "starting too early." An officer responded to the scene; the neighbor denied spraying them. Peace was eventually "restored." I love this 'Peace was..."restored"' So tentative.

  • 9:04 a.m. Treasury Department phone call scam reported on Pond Street.

  • 9:30 a.m. Someone smeared a hamburger "all over" a man's truck on Stonybrook Road. The "rear window and driver's side are covered in condiments (and) the buns are on the roof and windshield," the caller said. There was no damage to the vehicle. The Hamburglar must have been caught in the act.

  • 5:32 p.m. IRS scam on Powder House Court.

It's been quiet in the Old Town these last few months.

Fri., Sept. 30

  • 8:50 a.m. A vehicle got stuck on the beach near Gas House Lane.

  • 11:43 a.m. Police seized two grinders and a container full of marijuana on Humphrey Street. The grinders were for the munchies, I guess.

  • 4:36 p.m. A man on Orchard Street called police, saying someone shot an arrow into his yard. "...It fell to earth I know not where. Oops, there it is!

The man told police it was his "First Amendment" right to do so. Football squares are used in betting. I wonder how much he put on Trump winning?

The Marblehead Constabulary has been busy with fireworks over the holiday weekend. However, on July 1 they had a case that was a bit more involved:

"9:05 p.m. A woman called and said it appeared someone boarded her boat on Hunsley Lane and rearranged several items on the boat. Nothing was stolen. The woman's husband then got on the phone and said he read something about a suspect called "The Arranger" who goes into people's homes and moves things around."

I presume that the perpetrator was working on his own. Thus he would be...

The Lone Arranger.

Thursday, May 12

9:37 a.m. A caller complained a crosswalk guard in the Pleasant Street area wasn't doing her job correctly. Think of the children!
10:09 a.m. A woman on Auburndale Road said her neighbor threatened to poison her children after she planted some trees near the property line. Get that crosswalk guard! Lives are at stake!
11:57 a.m. A Marblehead High School administrator called police and said there's a scam going around where someone is asking residents for money that would purportedly go to high school athletic teams.
12:45 p.m. A bicyclist on Ocean Avenue was hospitalized after falling and injuring his head.
1:49 p.m. A woman said she saw "two men with black hats and black tactical vests with long, black guns" in a conservation area on Old Salem Road. An officer checked out the area and found nothing. Looking for the crosswalk guard, no doubt.

6:50 p.m. A Village School student said someone stole her phone.

The old town has been at the egg nog again, it seems.

Friday, Dec. 18

  • At 8:27 a.m., there was a motor vehicle accident at Atlantic Avenue and Community Road.

  • At 11:59 a.m., a caller on Washington Street said she wanted to speak to an officer regarding a neighbor who was leaving the back door open and letting the cold air in. This is the slippery slope at the end of which the police officers become social workers. SHUT THAT DOOR!

  • At 2:25 p.m., there was a report of a hit and run accident with a van hitting a car on Front Street.

  • At 10:11 p.m., there was a report of five people wrestling in front of a restaurant on Pleasant Street. Nothing was found. Just look for a group of guys in tight singlets.

Saturday, Dec. 19

  • At 10:41 a.m., there was a report of a breaking and entering to a motor vehicle on West Street.

  • At 11:10 a.m., there was a call from the Palmer Police Department regarding someone in a motor vehicle registered in Marblehead taking photos. Officers spoke to the woman, who said that while she was picking up her daughter, she took a photo of a deflated inflatable Santa Claus as part of a project called “Santa Down.” She said she would call the Palmer Police and explain the situation. Are there that many deflated Santa Claus figures around? And is taking a picture of one something the constabulary ought to be investigating? Enquiring minds want to know.

Sunday, Dec. 20

  • At 1:03 p.m., 2,000 pesos were found in a park on Lighthouse Lane. That should give someone a Feliz Navidad.

  • At 3:02 p.m., there was a report of a lost cellphone. The girl said it it did not really matter if it was found, since it’s Christmas and she’ll just get a new one. Oops! Coal in the stocking for this one!
chrishansenhome: (Default)
Wednesday, Dec. 9

  • At 9:45 a.m., a caller on Smith Street reported that a man, who was possibly drunk, was going in and out of a car across the street from the school. Officers advised the man to stay home and not enter the car.

  • At 11:29 a.m., party relayed that there was a work van blocking the sidewalk near Jersey Street and stated that he “fell and was bleeding”, when asked if he needed medical attention he yelled “what I need is for you people to go tell that a**hole to move” when asked again to verify that he did not need medical attention he hung up the phone. Well, perhaps he does need medical attention, but not for cuts.

  • At 12:07 p.m., a caller on Linden Street stated that he needed “a cop with a camera” for injuries he sustained after a fall. Ah, I guess he needed medical attention after all.

  • At 12:23 p.m., there was a motor vehicle accident at Spring and Elm Streets.

  • At 2:51 p.m., a caller reported that there was ”a dinghy on wooden horse legs” in the middle of the road near Elizabeth and Richard Roads and said it “p***es her off because the roads can’t be plowed with that thing in the road.” The resident who owns the dinghy was advised to move it. The Trojan Dinghy.

Thursday, Dec. 10

  • At 7:16 a.m., four wheels were reported stolen from a Mercedes on Gallison Avenue. The car was left being held up with rocks. Four. I'm glad it wasn't five, or three.

    The constabulary in Marblehead had an interesting couple of days last week.

    Wednesday, Nov. 25

    At 12:48 p.m., a caller on West Shore Drive reported that a white truck with two ladders was driving behind her in an aggressive manner.
    At 2:48 p.m., a caller reported that he was jogging on the Neck when a green Mercedes drove past him and the occupants threw a bag of trash at him. He said it appeared the car was filled with teens who appeared to be drinking.
    At 3:11 p.m., a caller on Humphrey Street reported that the car behind him was tailgating and driving erratically and that the driver was eating a sub sandwich and talking on the phone.
    At 8:19 p.m., a caller reported hearing an explosion at the dump. Police did not find anything.

    Thursday, Nov. 26

    At 9:47 a.m., there was a report of a man working with chainsaws on Pleasant Street disturbing the caller’s holiday.

    I find that the driver who was multitasking by driving erratically, tailgating, eating a sub sandwich, and talking on the phone was probably just another ordinary Massachusetts driver. And the gentleman who was working with chainsaws on Pleasant St on Thanksgiving was probably just carving his turkey.

    There's at least one chuckle below.

    Wednesday, July 22
    • At 8:33 a.m., police got a call from someone who lost a blue wallet in town the previous day. The wallet had “She works hard for the money” written on it. Ah, so she works hard for the money but loses the freaking wallet she keeps it in. Oh. I see.

    • At 8:54 a.m., there was a minor motor vehicle accident on Tedesco Street.

    • At 2:50 p.m., there was a report of a man on Ocean Avenue with a handgun shooting rocks. Police determined that the man had a BB gun and was shooting BBs at the rocks.

    • At 9:11 p.m., a man said his son’s bicycle had been stolen from behind the high school.

    Vodka delivery trucks and fishing for squid feature today.

    • At 10:15 a.m., there was a report that a vodka delivery truck struck a pole on Lee Street, causing the pole to wiggle. The DPW determined there was no damage and believe the truck may have only hit a sign. I will keep a lookout for vodka delivery trucks: I could use some right now.

    • At 11:10 a.m., a shotgun was turned in for destruction.

    • At 12:17 p.m., there was a report of someone burning weeds with a blowtorch on Maple Street.

    • At 9:34 p.m., a caller reported that there was a large group of fishermen on Commercial Street fishing off the dock and getting squid ink everywhere, including his boat. The fishermen moved to the proper area. Squid ink is a major pollutant, it seems.
