A 2:08 a.m. report that somebody rang a doorbell brought police to 108 Centre St., but a search of the area didn’t yield anything suspicious.

Richard Louissaint, 20, of 9 Memorial Drive, Middleton, was arrested on charges of trespassing, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, according to a 7 p.m. log item. Louissaint was arrested at North Shore Community College.


Police conducted a traffic stop at 153 Endicott St. at 4:37 a.m. and arrested Brian Zagrobski, 44, of 13 Crowdis St., Salem, on charges of operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, subsequent offense; possession of a class B drug; and a moped violation.

An 11:53 a.m. report of a suspicious man on a pink bike brought an officer to Cherry Street, but the report was later called “unfounded.”

Nobody was injured in a two-alarm house fire that broke out at 121 Summit St. just after noon. Fire Chief Ronald Giovannacci said the blaze apparently started with some kind of electrical problem inside a chicken coop and spread to the nearby house.

After a report of an erratic operator, police conducted a traffic stop at Route 1 and Salem Road at 1:56 p.m. and arrested Priscilla Guerrero, 29, of Wakefield, on charges of driving under the influence of drugs, operating to endanger and a marked lanes violation.
