At 11:40 a.m., police responded to Hampton Inn about a domestic disturbance. Police spoke to the couple, who had various criminal charges and aliases on their records. Police also think the two may have been engaged in an escort service because of items found in their hotel room. Her phone number is also used by multiple escort service sites. Officers escorted the pair from the hotel and forwarded their information to investigators in case they decide to settle in Woburn.

At 6:21 p.m., an employee at Walgreens on Main Street reported a shoplifter. The customer appeared nervous and may have been under the influence of something. The customer left the store without paying for a $10 memory card and a Gravity DVD. The employee said the security system didn’t go off and he didn’t actually see the customer take the items out of the store. The employee said he followed the customer out of the store and engaged in a verbal confrontation before the man left the area. A suspect has been identified and police suggested the business send the man a no trespass order.
