Police received a 7:15 p.m. report of a burglary from an Endicott Street man who said he’d left his residence unlocked for 13 days while he was away. “He reported the following items missing: mahogany record player, a fisherman statue that used to be a lamp and had a broken bottom, and a couple of old watches he said were unimportant,” police wrote. The man said he couldn’t understand why somebody would take such “worthless items” when he also had 1,000 VHS tapes and 3,000 records.

A woman called police to 22 Prince St. at 8:31 p.m. “because her boyfriend has two last names and she wanted us to find out why he has two last names.” The woman said she’d been with the man for six months but didn’t know his birthday, how old he was or exactly where he was from. Officers were unable to determine why the man had two last names.

A vehicle hit a snowbank and two signposts at 242 Bridge St., according to a 10:19 p.m. report. Police were unable to locate it.

He was also the subject of a warrant.



Police conducted a traffic stop on Patricia Road at 5:49 p.m. and arrested Christopher Tilley, 44, of 60 Harrison Ave., Peabody, on charges of operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, subsequent offense; having an unregistered motor vehicle; and a miscellaneous motor vehicle equipment violation.
