A gray Chevrolet in the Apple Bank parking lot appeared suspicious last Thursday afternoon to a woman who called police to say it had been there "for quite some time." A man seated at the wheel refused when she asked him to leave, she said. An officer arrived and spoke to him, and the man stated that "he had an important phone call and this was the only place in the area where he had good service."

That night, an employee of Philosofit on Lumber Lane told police a man had inquired about "lessons," but just what kind of lessons was redacted in the report. She also said he was "walking around the building and acting oddly." He was not found when an officer arrived.

A man called police from the Stop & Shop parking lot Saturday afternoon to say his sister would not answer her phone to come pick him up. Police gave him a ride home.

A Suffolk Street resident arrived home last week to find her Ring doorbell no longer working. She observed also that her router had been unplugged, and told police that security footage taken before it was disconnected showed her soon-to-be ex-husband walking around the property.

Last Thursday, police were called upon by the Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center to tend to an injured seagull lying in shrubbery by the post office parking lot. The bird was "in mild distress or dehydrated," the report said.

A Suffolk Street woman told police on Friday that her landlord was blasting loud music outdoors "in an effort to irritate his tenant." He agreed to turn it down when an officer asked.

Late that night, a Hillside drive resident called police after seeing an outdoor light on in a house belonging to his cousin, whom he knew was out of town. The winds were fierce that night, and police solved the mystery after determining that the light was motion-activated.

Two suspicious identification cards were declined at the 7-Eleven on Sunday after a man and woman tried using them to buy alcohol. Police deemed their I.D.s fake, and confiscated them.

Harassing spam phone calls, said a Hampton Street resident on Sunday, have been coming in with his wife's cellphone number (a practice known as "spoofing"). He wanted the incidents documented, he told police.
