An 8:52 a.m. report that a man was trying to kick in a door brought police to 27 Garden Terrace. Subsequently arrested was Wellington Pinales-Garcia, 25, of 46 Walnut St., Peabody, on charges of illegal possession of a class A substance and possession with intent to distribute in a school zone.

Police received a 9:24 a.m. report that kids were “displaying physical emotion” on a lawn at 3 Cauldron Court.

A Loring Avenue man reported at 2:16 p.m. that somebody had entered his front porch overnight and stolen three flags, including an American flag, a colonial flag and a Commonwealth of Massachusetts flag. “No damage was done to the porch and no forced entry was made,” wrote police.

Police responded to a 4:11 p.m. report of an assault in a store on Klop Alley, where an employee said they’d asked a man to stop videotaping inside the business and that he had refused.
