Dec. 4, 7:50 p.m. - Westford Police stopped a driver whose vehicle had no visible working lights near the corner of Main Street and Tadmuck Road.
According to the owner of the vehicle, it was just purchased from a previous owner in Florida and was damaged in transit to Massachusetts.
The vehicle was towed and the owner was given a verbal warning.
Dec. 13, 7:48 p.m. - A woman returning to her apartment on Bay Road became suspicious of a black pickup truck following her on Littleton Road.
Upon returning home, she called police and gave the truck owner's license plate number, saying she "hit" her brakes three times near Belle's Bistro in the attempt to have the vehicle give her more distance.
The driver followed her up to the Crossroads Cafe plaza in Nagog Village.
Westford Police contacted the other driver who indicated that the woman was driving 25 miles per hour in what was a 45 mile per hour zone, and it was very difficult to provide more distance between the two vehicles.
While he was not aware that the sudden stop near Belle's Bistro was intentional, he continued to notice the slow speed of the other vehicle and observed a passenger in the vehicle stare at him as he approached his final destination: a gym near Crossroads Cafe.
