A 5:13 p.m. report that an employee of Shaw’s Supermarket at the Northshore Mall had stolen cash resulted in the arrest of Christine Knowles, 20, of 2 Coleman St., Peabody, on a charge of larceny over $250. She was also wanted on a warrant, according to the log.

Police were unable to locate anything suspicious after either a 7:29 p.m. report of gunshots on Sylvia Road or a 7:35 p.m. report of “10 gunshots in a row” near 16 Coleman St.

Police received an 8:21 p.m. 911 call from a male at an Eileen Road residence who said it was a “false alarm” and that he didn’t need assistance. “After using simple yes or no questions, it was described as a verbal argument between father and son,” wrote police. “The mother ... then got on the phone and stated that it was a verbal argument over the kids not shoveling while the parents were working.”


Police transported an impaired female to her mother’s residence on Wilson Terrace after her mother kicked her out of a vehicle for using “abusive language,” according to a 12:45 a.m. log item.

Police notified the DPW after a 4:16 a.m. report that a manhole near 18 Goldthwaite Place was missing its cover.
