An officer at Highland Avenue and Mooney Road at 8:59 p.m. arrested Craig Godbolt, 52, of 18 Landers St., Lynn, on charges of failure to stop for police, operating a motor vehicle with a revoked license and speeding.

Police responded to an 11:19 p.m. report of a domestic dispute at 27 Salem St. and determined that a woman had left an apartment there after a verbal argument only to return later to find her belongings in the hallway. “She was allowed back in the residence to take her cats with her and left again without incident,” police wrote.


A woman drove through a stop sign at Broadway and Loring Avenue and struck a police cruiser around 1:30 a.m., according to a report. An officer said the woman, who wasn’t wearing shoes, failed field sobriety tests but did pass a breath test. Latoya Olson, 29, of 129 Rainbow Terrace, Salem, was arrested on charges of operating without being licensed, a stop sign violation and impeded operation. No injuries were reported.

Police received a 1:47 p.m. report of the “possible illegal dumping of tree” at 42 Charles St. An officer determined that a tree company was working at the site. An employee said “they were almost done and only a few shavings might have blown away from them, but they didn’t dump any.”

A three-car accident in the Market Basket parking lot at 227 Highland Ave. was reported to police at 3:34 p.m. An officer determined that a driver “was blinded by the sun” and struck a vehicle at a stop sign, pushing that vehicle into the vehicle ahead of it. All three vehicles sustained minor damage. There were no reported injuries or citations.

An 18-year-old woman was transported to Salem Hospital after she was struck by a vehicle at the intersection of Webb and Bridge streets around 5:45 p.m. An officer said the woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries, including a laceration to her forehead, and that the driver of the vehicle that struck her was not cited because it appeared the woman walked into the middle of the intersection during a green light and speed was not a factor.
