7/10/2016 to 7/11/2016

3:00 pm: A Beals Street resident reported his bike was stolen off of his front porch. The resident was unsure if his bike was secured. Two other bikes that were secured to the porch were untouched.

4:23 pm: Officers responded to a fraud report on Browne Street. The resident reported that on 4/10/2016 she located an ad for a vacation home in Cape Cod. She contacted the Craigslist user who posted it and made a reservation for a weekend in July. She was told to transfer half of the cost of the house and a security deposit to a bank account. She was then instructed to send the rest of the costs prior to the reservation. The resident recently attempted to contact the Craigslist user and when he could not be contacted she found the rightful owners of the Cape Cod residence who denied posting a listing on Craigslist.

5:11 pm: A scooter was reported stolen from a driveway on Oakland Road. The owner stated it was parked in her legal parking spot and she had never had issues with parking the scooter there before. The scooter had been locked and covered. The scooter was not found on the tow file. The resident also checked with her landlord and neighbors, but nothing was found.
