At 2:44 p.m. police responded to a Minchin Drive residence on a report of suspicious activity. The call was made by a neighbor who saw two men acting suspicious at a neighboring house.
Police checked the home and found that a home break-in had occurred. There was a broken door lock on a sliding door and open window.
Police spoke to the neighbor who called and her son who said they witness two men arrive in a newer Dodge Ram pick-up truck.
The caller said she saw the driver of the vehicle go to the front door and try to open it while the passenger went around back. The driver saw her watching him and he went back to the truck while talking on his cell phone. Soon after the passenger came from behind the house with a pillowcase that appeared full. The caller and her son both agreed he did not have that pillowcase before going to the back of the house.
The driver was described as a white male in his twenties with dirty blonde hair, a medium build and standing at about 5’10’’ tall. The passenger was described as a shorter white male with a skinny build and wearing a white t-shirt, jeans and an all white baseball cap with a green visor.
Police checked the home and did not see much out of place. A laptop, television and Kindle were all untouched. Drawers in the master bedroom were open however and several items were scattered on the floor.
Police called the homeowners who showed up a short time later. After an initial look at the house they did not notice anything missing other than a Temperpedic pillow and casing.
At 1:52 p.m. police responded to the Veterinary Hospital at 20 Cabot Rod on a report of possible larceny by an employee.
Police met with the hospital manager who said that a female who was the hospital accountant receivable stole $1,199 from the company.
According to the manger, the accountant made five different cash transactions between July 1 and Aug. 5 but then would make a reverse payment followed by a write off. The woman also had access to the computer security codes that would allow her to make such transactions.
The manger said she asked the accountant about the missing money and she said that she had “put it in her purse so she wouldn’t lose it and then brought it home by accident.” She then later could not find the money.
The accountant was given the opportunity to resign and she took up the offer. The manager said the hospital did not want to press charges because she was an outstanding employee for nine years but did want the incident logged.
At 2:07 p.m. a man from Arch Painting said a former employee had used a company credit card for personal use before leaving the company.
