At 7:22 a.m., a Tennessee Street resident reported an attempted break-in. He said his dogs barked in the middle of the night. He noticed in the morning that a pane of glass leading to the basement was broken. Police took a report.

At 10:21 a.m., police responded to Normac Road about a larceny after a person stole $1,337 worth of copper wire from a business. A man entered the store and used a fake name and said he was sent there by a company that is performing electrical work in Lexington. The store called the business and confirmed that was the case. When the man signed for the wire, however, the employee noticed the signature was suspicious. The man ran out of the store with the wire. The store called back the business and the owner told them that the man’s description matched a Revere man who was recently let go. Police plan to summons the man to court and charge him with larceny more than $250 under false pretenses.
