3:16 PM- An officer responded to TJ MAXX on Harvard St. for a reported shoplifting incident.  The officer met with the loss prevention officer at the store who stated that two young males entered the store around 3:00 PM and shoplifted several items.  The employee showed the officer a video of the suspects.  The video shows one of the persons involved placing several items of clothing inside his book bag.  The second person was not observed taking any items from the store.  When the individual who was observed concealing items tried to exit the store without paying, the complainant tried to stop him unsuccessfully.  This case is being investigated.

5:25 PM- A larceny report was made at Heath St.  When an officer arrived at the location he met the complainant who stated that there had been four burglaries and one larceny reported to her.  These incidents were said to have occurred between 8:00 AM on Tuesday 7/24/18 and 5:00 PM on Friday 7/27/18.  Units in this location are rented out to an outside institution in the summer.  One of the residents affected stated that the master key could have been taken out of the staff office in the room next to hers or a copy could have been made.  The responding officer was not able to locate or contact the other reporting parties.  The caller stated that all the residents assigned for the first half of summer were leaving Saturday 7/28/18.  The same officer went to the location a second time to see if any remaining residents had noticed anything suspicious or had another incident.  He was made aware of several more incidents.  One witness was in his unit when a male opened his room door, peered in and closed the door when he noticed it was occupied.  This case is under investigation.
