Police investigated an apparent break-in on Lafayette Street at 3 p.m. A door was kicked in and the bedroom was in disarray.

A Tewksbury man was arrested on outstanding warrants from Salem, Lynn and Malden after he and a woman were accused of shoplifting at the Highland Avenue Walmart at 4:09 p.m.

A case worker’s concern over a man who hadn’t been heard from all week led police to a Boston Street apartment and a confrontation with a white and tan pit bull, according to the log at 4:51 p.m.. A call to the animal control officer proved fruitless, so the dog was controlled by police through its harness. Patrolmen Dennis Luti and Sgt. Bill Jennings searched the apartment, finding it “in total disarray. The dog tore apart the apartment.” The missing man wasn’t found. The dog was sent to Danvers Animal Hospital leaving on the back seat of the cruiser “a puddle of blood.” The animal control officer will investigate.

No one expects people to “Remember, remember the 5th of November” around here. (It’s a British thing.) But a business on Essex Street complained at 5:15 p.m. about kids wearing Guy Fawkes masks banging on the window and opening “the door to the business” to yell an obscenity. “One boy was described as blond with a bowl type haircut and the two others were darker skinned.” Police advised a call if they return.
