Saturday, February 17th


On early Saturday morning, officers assigned to their unit notified Brookline Police Dispatch that a motor vehicle had crashed into a business on Harvard St. Upon arrival, Brookline PD, Brookline Fire and EMS evaluated the driver, who was medically cleared. The driver stated that while proceeding past the intersection of Thorndike and Harvard St, an unidentified motor vehicle drove through a stop sign. As an attempt to avoid collision, the driver swerved and ultimately crashed into the business. Both the driver's vehicle and the business sustained significant damage. A follow-up by the traffic division has been requested.

The victim of a stolen bicycle came into the station to file a report Saturday evening. He stated that his bike had been taken from alongside of his home between Thursday night and Friday morning. He noted that he had placed the bicycle there unlocked. Police are investigating.

On Saturday night, officers were dispatched to a residence to investigate a noise complaint of an address with a past history of loud party calls. One of the residents was advised of the complaint, the nuisance control town by-law and was informed that they were in violation of the aforementioned by-law. A violation was issued.
