Oct. 5, 7:04 p.m. - The owner of a vacant home on Pine Tree Trail called police after he discovered that 100 feet of copper piping had been stolen.

Several realtors had been showing the property, but no neighbors had seen anything suspicious in recent days. 

Oct. 23, 10:22 p.m. -  Two men outside Karma at Westford Valley Marketplace 2 found themselves face to face with a Westford Police officer after someone reported that their friend was outside in an intoxicated state.

The three had been having dinner inside, but the third man had too much to drink according to the other two, leaving the restaurant and walking outside to the back of the building.

Another friend came to pick him up and take him home.

Oct. 28, 3:25 p.m. - A real estate agent showing a home at the Cottages in the Woods across from Coldwell Banker on Boston Road reported to police that she had been assaulted by a disgruntled former client.

Apparently, the former client had purchased another house at Cottages in the Woods and prospective clients for the home she was showing now were heading to the former client's home instead of the home on the market.

The former client told those coming to her home not to purchase a home through the real estate agent.

Eventually, the former client came over to the house that the real estate agent was showing, although the realtor tried to stop her.

At this point, the former client allegedly shoved the real estate agent out of the way, gaining access to the home.

The real estate agent was not injured, and did not wish for the former client to be contacted by police.

Nov. 1, 3:29 p.m. - An officer was dispatched to Walgreens on Littleton Road in response to a traffic accident.

The driver responsible in the incident indicated that she was attempting to park in the lot when she started to suffer from double vision and disorientation, accidentally hitting a vehicle next to her, causing minor damage.

She was issued a written warning for alleged operation of a motor vehicle with intent to endanger and marked lane violations before being sent to Lowell General Hospital.
