Police received a 12:16 a.m. report that somebody was calling a Green Street Court woman “every 15 minutes.” An officer wrote: “Calling party advised to shut off phone and contact housing in the morning.”

A woman requested at 1:01 a.m. that a well-being check be conducted on a Commercial Street man. “According to caller, made threats to kill caller a couple of weeks ago,” wrote police. “Caller said he is in liver failure and is sick and needs help.” Police located the man and wrote later: “Checked with male, he seems fine. His brother is there for the same reason, seems to be a problem with an ex-girlfriend...the couple broke up tonight. She has been calling....repeatedly tonight which is why the brother was there.”



A Margin Street man reported at 4:10 p.m. that someone had taken his lawn mower from his backyard, put it in the back of a green pickup truck and then taken off toward Salem. Police in that city stopped a vehicle matching the description and determined the person inside had two junk lawn mowers — neither of which belonged to the man.

Police conducted a traffic stop at Monson Drive and Winona Street at 6:07 p.m. and arrested Matthew St. George, 30, of 16 Keniston Road, Lynnfield, on charges of operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license and having an unregistered motor vehicle.

A woman on Central Street reported at 10:13 p.m. that her ex-boyfriend had jumped on her car and then stolen her license plate, but police wrote later that she “did not want any police assistance and would handle matter on her own.”

Police and the Fire Department responded to 84 Walnut St. after a 10:26 p.m. report that smoke was coming from the second floor of the building.
