Wednesday, Dec. 19
11:37 p.m. - Nicholas Walker, 17, of 4 Magnolia Dr. in Westford was arrested for failure to appear on personal recognizance. Walker was arrested earlier this month as well.
Oct. 23, 4:24 p.m. - In the parking lot of Westford Valley Marketplace 2, a man reported that his ex-girlfriend had keyed his car despite the fact he had a restraining order out on her.
The man said he had saw the girl at Karma, and that damages were approximately $200.
Police caught up to the girlfriend, who indicated that she was at Karma, but had left about an hour before the incident allegedly occurred and that she did not see the man, and if she did, she would have contacted police due to the restraining order.
Dec. 6, 1:00 p.m. - A woman on Patten Road called police after a man who she described as having a "heavy accent" called her several times asking for money.
The man told her that she allegedly had won a contest and that $500 would be needed to obtain her prize. However, the man would not provide any personal information about himself.
Later that day, the man called two more times attempting to cajole the woman to send him money, eventually becoming belligerent.
Police advised the woman not to provide any personal information and ask the phone company to block that number.
Dec. 14, 9:44 p.m. - One man tried to make a left turn out of Cornerstone Square onto Boston Road despite signs prohibiting doing so, and he was stopped by police.
Further investigation uncovered that the man's vehicle registration was revoked for lack of insurance.
The man indicated that he was unaware that his vehicle's registration was not valid, but that he had faced a similar situation ten years ago.
He was issued citations for an improper left turn, operating a motor vehicle with a revoked registration and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.
