Saturday, Nov. 10
3:57 p.m. - Eugene Piotte, 48, of Forest Lake Drive in Hillsborough,NH was arrested for alleged operation of a motor vehicle under the influence of liquor and possession of an open container of alcohol in a vehicle.
Oct. 18, 3:02 a.m. - On Crown Road, one resident reported that their license plate had been stolen.
The resident indicated that they saw several males in a pickup truck attempt to remove both of the plates on her vehicle, taking the back plate and bending the front plate before fleeing from the scene.
Oct. 21, 1:00 p.m. - A resident reported a scam at the Westford Police Department lobby, advising that he had received a check in the mail for $4,970 that would require him to send back a $300 check for processing.
The officer he talked to advised that he contact the Federal Trade Commission for further information on how to proceed regarding this matter.
Oct. 23, 1:44 p.m. - An officer was dispatched to the Residence Inn on Lan Drive after a guest allegedly threatened an employee.
The incident happened in the parking lot the night before where the guest told the employee, "I get my gun from Saudi Arabia and I kill you."
While the guest thought it was just a joke, given the difficulty travelling all the way back to Saudi Arabia in order to obtain the firearm, the employee was fairly shocked and management of the hotel asked the man to leave and not return.
The guest was extremely apologetic to the employee as well as the police officer, particularly due to the fact that he identified himself as a police officer in Saudi Arabia.
While the officer on this call appreciated the guest's appreciation, he advised the guest to be more careful with cultural misunderstandings in the future and that in this country his comments could have been construed as criminal threatening.
No charges were filed against the guest.
