Featured Call of the Day
At 2:10 p.m. police responded to Stoneham Street residence for a report of larceny. Caller stated that last week she had noticed that three checks had been stolen from the visor of her vehicle that was parked in the driveway. She later noticed that items were also missing from her apartment, including a battery to her scooter and two crystal necklaces. She put a stop payment on the checks, which were never cashed. Total value of items stolen was roughly $450.
At 9:58 a.m. police responded to the intersection of Main Street and Campbell Street for a report of a pedestrian struck by a motor vehicle. The pedestrian was walking in a crosswalk when she was struck by a vehicle turning left onto Campbell Street. Driver said he never saw the pedestrian and the report states he may have “lost sight of her in his left crossbar.” The driver was cited with failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. No injuries reported.
At 5:37 p.m. police responded to Continental Court Apartments for a call of illegal dumping. The property manager stated he found approximately 40 bags of roofing material dumped into the apartment dumpster. He also found a bag, of the same type, filled with mail for a Natick household with the last name as a tenant. The property manager stated he had asked the resident about it, and he said his parents dumped one bag while visiting.
The property manager reportedly told the tenant he was going to hold the bag for evidence and the tenant got upset and called police. The tenant called his father who spoke to police and said he and his wife had dumped 12 bags of things from cleaning out their basement but not the roofing material. The tenant was still upset the property manager was keeping the bag with his parents’ mail and canceled checks. Police informed him that once it was thrown in the dumpster it was no longer a personal possession. Not satisfied the tenant went back into his apartment.
At 9:12 p.m. a Sturgis Street caller reported a hit and run accident. She said that her vehicle’s side mirror was knocked off and there was minor damage to the rear bumper of the driver’s side. The accident occurred while the car was parked in front of her house and she was at work.
