Resident Break-in Reveals Drug Operation, Dog Booked, 10th Green Targeted

An excerpt from the Salem Police Log Sunday night through Monday afternoon.

  • A woman brought a "small tan" dog to the station at 7:11 p.m. Sunday after she found it wandering on Jefferson Avenue without tags. After it was transported to Hawthorne Animal Health Care, "the dog was booked," and the owner showed up at the police station. The dog was released to the owner.
  • Police responded to Kernwood Country Club at 7:41 p.m. Sunday after it was reported there was "damage to the 10th green." The caller told the responding officer that "a group of youths" had removed the "10th green flag pole to poke six holes in the green." A range finder, which had been located on top of the pole, was also missing.
  • At 8:32 pm Sunday, police responded to a possible break-in on Proctor Street. Witnesses told police they had seen a male breaking into a white apartment building next to Walgreens on Boston Street. When police investigated the exterior of the building, a male party came out of the apartment and "stated it was his residence and he broke the window after forgetting his key inside." When asked for identification to verify the story, the male, who said he was a resident, produced a Social Security card. Police searched to see if there were any other individuals present. "Cocaine, scales and a large amount of cash" were found along with the resident's  driver's license. A small amount of marijuana was also found in his pocket. Though authorities were in the process of obtaining arrest warrants for multiple counts of possession and intent to distribute, the resident's whereabouts are currently "unknown."
  • Officials were called at 10:25 a.m. Monday to "check on [a] baby squirrel" in Washington Square.
  • At 12:07 p.m. Monday, police responded to Federal Street after a report of two missing "cast iron planters." After the caller returned from a week-long vacation, she said "the two 50lb.-75lb. items were gone."
  • Police received a call on 3:24 p.m. Monday from a Hodge's Circle resident who claimed the pastor from her former church "showed up at her home and harassed her over her and her family's decision to leave the church."
