8:00PM: Officers were dispatched to Winchester Street for two reports of hit and run motor vehicle accidents. Both of the reporting parties were not present when their cars were damaged. Both vehicles had driver side damage and one of the car’s mirrors had also been damaged. Because of the proximity of time and physical closeness of the vehicles, it is possible these crimes were committed by the same person. Police are investigating.
9:02PM: There were reports of shoplifting on Beacon Street. The reporting party described the man he saw steal from their business. Upon arrival, officers noticed a man on the corner of Harvard Street that matched the description. When they approached him he eventually admitted to taking the items. He then returned the items to the store and conversed with the manager about no longer being allowed in the business. The suspect is being summoned to court for shoplifting.
