Incidents, Accidents & Arrests

Tuesday, April 8

Forget the scratch? What about the rock-throwing middle-schoolers?!

An Austin Ct, resident called police to report that her Buick LeSabre was damaged by a brick – an issue she believes is an ongoing problem with middle school kids allegedly throwing rocks and bricks. A dispatched officer reported a minor scratch to the vehicle. The caller requested that the incident be placed on record.

Now that’s customer service

Emergency dispatch received a call from an employee at Frigidaire in Georgia requesting a well-being check on an Essex St. resident. According to the report, the customer service employee stated that she was on the phone with the Saugus resident when she noticed the woman began acting strangely and had mentioned several times that she was a diabetic. Police, fire, and ambulance personnel responded to the address to check the woman’s health. She was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

Metaphorically-speaking, it could happen if you abuse

A woman reported that she fell into a large hole outside a liquor store on Lincoln Ave. injuring her leg. The woman was offered medical attention. A Dept. of Public Works employee was notified to investigate. An officer reported a small hole near the bus stop.

I don’t want to pray – I just want to bang on the drum all day

Dispatch received a call for someone drumming in the church on Assembly Drive. A dispatched officer reported that the drumming had stopped prior to his arrival. After speaking with a church member, the officer stated that the noise had ended for the evening.

Yea – very funny…not!

A Forest Ave. resident called police stating that he heard a very loud bang inside his home and felt that his home was being broken into. The man stated that he then observed a white four-door vehicle drive by his home, providing the license plate to police. Officers reported that the vehicle of interest was located and was occupied by a family member who stated that she “thought it would be funny to kick the back door”. The man said he had no interest in pursuing the matter any further. I wonder if the officer was laughing, too.

World Series Park Welcomes Subway’s Support

World Series Park in Saugus depends on the support of Saugus businesses. Many Saugus businesses purchase advertising signs that are displayed on the outfield fence each season. People who come to the park are encouraged to support these businesses, because without the support of these businesses the park wouldn’t be possible. World Series Park hosts over 200 games each season.alt

A Plethora of Winter Season All Stars

I am solidly in favor of a new high school in Saugus. The current building is over 50 years old and in very bad shape. If you follow the messages of the School Committee, the selectmen, and the town manager, they all favor a new building. The students and young families deserve better than the current school. We have great teachers and administration, but the building detracts from their capabilities to provide the very best education for their students.alt

The Winter Sports All Stars for the North Shore were named this week. Joe Bertrand was chosen Outstanding Player of the Year for his basketball expertise. Joe averaged 26 points, 14 rebounds and five assists this past season, accumulating 1,141 points during his career at SHS. Along with his other achievements, Joe is a National Honor Society Student.
