An officer gave a motorist a verbal warning on Essex Street at 5:41 p.m. for having “excessive tint” on the car windows.

A Salem State University police officer reported finding a “highly intoxicated” male on the college property on Loring Avenue at 9:55 p.m. The male was placed into protective custody.

Police received a call about a man asleep behind the wheel of a black Ford pickup truck at the intersection of Essex and Washington streets at 11:15 p.m. Officers said they spoke with the driver, and when he exited the truck, it was “immediately obvious” he was extremely intoxicated. They said his speech was slurred, he couldn’t stand on his own, and he smelled of alcohol. The pickup truck was parked without the engine running, and the man was not injured. He was placed in protective custody and later issued a parking ticket for blocking a fire hydrant with his truck.


Police responded to a report of a male yelling in a Lafayette Street apartment on 1:50 a.m. The man told officers he was yelling at his TV and said he would go to bed for the night after he was advised to keep his voice down.

A female reported at 10:06 a.m. that she parked her van on Washington Street the night before and when she came out to her vehicle the next morning, she discovered the right rear tire was slashed. There were no witnesses, but she suspected her estranged husband was responsible.

A female came into the station at 10:29 a.m. to report her husband’s identity was stolen. She said she received a call on March 21 from her bank, asking if she had moved to a new address in Rhode Island. A few days later, she received a new credit card by mail, which she never ordered and promptly canceled. She then received two calls from a female asking for personal information and her credit card passwords. The woman didn’t provide any information and called her bank. A credit report showed several credit inquiries from sources the couple didn’t authorize or request.
