Salem

Wednesday

Both a citation and a trip to the hospital were the result when a driver on North Street was rear-ended in traffic by a taxi. The cabbie told officers his foot “slipped off the pedal,” according to the log at 5:23 p.m. The injured man pointed to his chest but was unable to speak English. The owner of the vehicle he was driving arrived and translated from Portuguese. The taxi driver was cited for following too closely and the other driver for operating the vehicle without a license.

At 5:50 p.m., police took a report from a Jefferson Avenue couple regarding items stolen from their vehicle.

Hot enough for you? The answer was no from a tenant on Boston Street who called police to complain there’d been no heat in the building since Dec. 31. But officers found there was more to the story. The building manager explained that one of several heat zones was not functioning while repairmen awaited a part. But he added that he “had offered an alternate method of heating,” according to the log at 7:04 p.m. He blamed the complaint on a tenant currently being evicted. Police checked all the tenants and found some using their ovens to keep warm. Each “state their rooms were adequately heated.”
