A Jersey Street woman reported at 1:45 p.m. that a man identifying himself as “Officer Roger Davis” had told her that “her son had been arrested for having alcohol in a car” and that she needed to buy $3,000 worth of vouchers from Walgreen’s to help get him “out of trouble.”

A man on Front Street was transported to Salem Hospital after a 1:58 p.m. report that he was intoxicated and felt he needed to go to the hospital. The woman reporting the situation said “this happened before where the male was so intoxicated that he was stuck sitting in a chair for three days,” police wrote.

Police responded to Pleasant Street after a 4:09 p.m. report that a man had fallen in the roadway. “Party is going back to Lynn on the bus,” police wrote later.



A Martin Circle woman had left a message for the animal control officer complaining that feral cats in the area had “killed a wild bunny” and that she felt they were “too aggressive,” according to a 2:24 p.m. log item. Police wrote: “I advised her ferals are considered wildlife and are not removed by PAC. I also made her aware that it is not uncommon for cats (even domestic) to hunt/kill small animals — it does not mean they are rabid. She then stated she did not feel safe in her own home and would shoot them. I advised her against discharging a firearm in her neighborhood. Party stated she was going to document our conversation, in the event a feral attacked someone. I advised her that (to date) nobody had ever reported a feral attacking them.”

Police received a 4:43 p.m. report that a 26-year-old Boston man had stolen $68 of cologne from Sears at Northshore Mall. Police were planning to summons him to court in connection with the incident.
