At 2:03 a.m., police placed an intoxicated 34-year-old Woburn man into protective custody. Police responded to Munroe Street concerning a noise complaint. A man was singing loudly in a house at about 1:17 a.m. The man agreed to go to bed. Police received another noise complaint less than an hour later. Police arrived and found the man yelling at a neighbor. Police placed the man into protective custody.

At 6 p.m., a Woburn resident reported that an ex-boyfriend left dozens of voicemails on her cell phone and home phone. She also said items were missing from her apartment and that he may have entered the home. Her home phone’s outgoing voicemail message was also changed saying, “You have reached (the woman’s name) phone, no one knows where she is because she does not answer the phone.” Police spoke to the ex-boyfriend who said he called her to check on her well being. He said he did not enter the apartment, but did acknowledge he changed the voicemail remotely two weeks ago.

At 7:16 a.m., police responded to Washington Street after a parked car’s window was smashed. Nothing was reportedly taken from the vehicle.

At 9:13 a.m., police responded to Red Roof Inn after a Samsung tablet and Kindle Fire were stolen from two separate rooms. At 6:15 p.m., another lodger reported that a laptop was stolen from a room. A master key at the front desk, which is missing, was used to enter the rooms. Hotel camera footage showed a woman who did not work at the motel behind the counter on Feb. 20. Red Roof Inn had all the locks changed so the master key is now invalid. Police are investigating the thefts.

At 10:47 a.m., a Cedar Street resident called to report a car break-in overnight. The man said the car was locked, but someone entered the vehicle, stole two pairs of sunglasses (valued at a combined $150) and the car’s owner’s manual. The vehicle couldn’t start and the power system was disabled. The vehicle was also ransacked. Police didn’t find any signs of forced entry.

At 1 p.m., a Woburn resident said she signed up online to take part in a secret shopper program. The company would send checks via FedEx and the woman was supposed to deposit the money into her bank account. She would then make purchases at Walmart and transfer money via Western Union at Walmart into three separate accounts. The first account was in Turkey. The other two were in the Philippines. The checks were for nearly $10,000 and included an amount for her. However, the checks were from a bank, Navy Federal Credit Union, that does not exist.

At 4:34 p.m., police summonsed a 24-year-old Woburn man to court and charged him with operating a motor vehicle without a license and a red light violation. Police issued the citation during a traffic stop on Main Street.

At 5:59 p.m., police arrested Cynthia Lynn Saunders, 26, 305 Dutton St., Apt. 308, Lowell, and Raymond Paul Gingras, 26, 4 Grove St., Wilmington, and charged them on warrants. Police responded to Curtis Road about suspicious solicitors. Police spoke to the solicitors and found a warrant for Saunders and Gingras arrests.

At 10:47 p.m., police arrested Cynthia Jean Stackpole, 41, 30 River St., Andover, and charged her on two warrants. Police reportedly saw Stackpole driving on Main Street without headlights and with her left tires across the double yellow line. Police pulled over the woman and found there were warrants for her arrest.
