Police were unable to locate anything suspicious in the area of Derby and Central streets after an 11:51 p.m. report that somebody had heard a female call for help.


A 9:33 a.m. report that somebody was “dispersing trash around the street” brought police to Summit Street, where they determined an elderly female had placed her trash bag in front of a neighbor’s home “because she already had too many bags.” Police wrote: “She was advised that her trash should go in front of her home. She agreed and moved the bag back to her home.”

A Bridge Street woman reported at 12:02 p.m. that items had been moved around in her house. Police wrote: “She stated that a few pictures hanging on the walls were slightly skewed to one side.
