At approximately 4:03pm there was a report of an accidental discharge of a firearm on Naples Road. It was reported that a person getting out of a motor vehicle re-positioned a firearm he was carrying which caused it to accidentally discharge. The firearm discharged into an occupied dwelling and the owner of the firearm notified the residents of the accidental discharge. Police were notified and conducted an initial investigation. The owner of the firearm was fully cooperative and is properly licensed. The firearm owner surrendered his firearm license and the revolver he had discharged. Detectives are following up with the licensing authority on the issue.

On January 23 at approximately 8:45am, an officer witnessed a vehicle make an illegal left turn onto Beacon Street. The officer initiated a traffic stop and found that the driver had a suspended license. The vehicle was turned over to the passenger who had an active license and the driver will be summoned to court.

At approximately 5:04pm units responded to Chilton Street for a report of a stolen motor vehicle. An officer met with the owner and they searched the area, as it is common for owners to overlook the exact area they left their vehicle. While searching, the owner pointed out his vehicle operating towards the police cruiser on Essex St. with one occupant on board. The officer activated the overhead lights of the cruiser and the operator of the stolen vehicle attempted to speed away. The officer trailed the vehicle, and located it crashed against a curb on Worthington Rd. The driver was uninjured and was taken into custody. The driver, a juvenile, is being charged with Receiving Stolen a Motor Vehicle, Reckless Operation, Not Duly Licensed, Failure to Stop for a Police Officer, and One Way Violation.

At approximately 6:10pm an officer was dispatched to Heath St. for a report of a breaking and entering of a motor vehicle. The victim stated that he had parked his vehicle the night before and when he returned to it in the morning, he found both passenger doors wide open and the interior rummaged through. The victim reported nothing missing.
