Salem

Monday

r A man walking his dog around the Salem Common at 4:50 p.m. saw someone near his car looking like he was trying to break in. The man began to approach the stranger near his car, and the stranger ran down the street.

r Police advised skateboarders at 8:15 p.m. not to ride on property belonging to the Peabody Essex Museum.

r A tenant at 12 First St. reported his apartment was broken into sometime between 4:30 p.m. Sunday and 8:15 p.m. Monday. Several items were stolen, and damage was done to the front lock area.

r An Andrews Street man reports to police at 10 p.m. that he heard glass breaking on the street, and when he looked outside, there was a man running down the street with his satellite radio.

Tuesday

r A Weatherly Drive woman reported that she was in bed and sleeping soundly when at 2:30 a.m. she heard a loud crash downstairs.

r A man cleaning out his basement found old ammunition and turned it over to police at 8:24 a.m.

r A dispute arose between the operator of a trolley and a tour bus driver on Essex Street near Museum Place at 9:15 a.m. The bus driver reported to police there was a trolley parked in a spot reserved for buses. Police responded and saw there were two conflicting signs. Patrolman Brian St. Pierre contacted Lt. Robert J. Preczewski, who is head of the traffic division, and he determined the trolley could stay there because the bus stop sign would be coming down. Preczewski allowed the bus driver to park his bus behind the trolley.

But the trouble wasn't over. Police were called back to the scene after the trolley operators said the bus driver threatened him after police left. The bus driver was gone before police returned, but they advised the trolley operator to stay away from the bus driver.
