Police: Peabody woman to be summonsed over car alarm

PEABODY — Police say a Central Street woman will be summonsed to court on a charge of disturbing the peace after her car alarm went off two mornings in a row this week.

According to the incident log, police fielded multiple complaints of a car alarm going off on Railroad Avenue shortly after 1 a.m. yesterday morning. Officers responded to the scene and determined that the blue 2007 Honda Civic belonged to a 66-year-old Central Street woman.

Police were unable to contact the woman or turn the alarm off, and the vehicle was towed.

Sgt. Robert Waugh said the department had fielded previous complaints about the woman’s car alarm and that attempts to reach her on several different occasions had failed.

According to a previous incident log, an officer responded to Railroad Avenue at about 1:45 a.m. on Tuesday night for an alarm that kept “cycling and sounding.” The officer was initially waved down by a person who reported someone had attempted to gain entry to a vehicle — the same Honda Civic that was involved in yesterday morning’s incident — but an area check didn’t turn up anything suspicious, aside from the car alarm going off.

“Officer checked the vehicle,” wrote police. “It is secure. Officer will attempt to locate owner to correct.”

Police wrote later: “Officer was not able to locate the owner.”

A second report of a car alarm going off on Railroad Avenue came in at 2:05 a.m.
