Residents on Beverly Avenue told police at 4:30 p.m. of two letters from a neighbor complaining that, among other things, they get water on his fence when they water their lawn and they’ve trimmed his hedges that overhang their property. Police directed them to a civil attorney.


A caller at 2:03 a.m. told police that while fishing “in Marblehead near a small island” his boat sank.
