Sunday, Sept. 23

5:28 p.m. - Andrew Barsaum, 21, of Bridge Street was arrested during a traffic stop on a previous warrant.

8:21 p.m. - A 17-year-old from Housatonic Avenue in Chelmsford was arrested on alleged operation of motor vehicles under the influence of drugs and light violations.

10:11 p.m. - A 17-year-old from Kirsi Circle was arrested on charges of alleged domestic assault and battery and alleged assault and battery of a person over the age of 60 with a weapon.

Follow Up

Sept. 7, 11:51 p.m. - An officer was dispatched to Boxwood Road for a person who was allegedly walking around with a flashlight nearby in an undeveloped lot.

The alleged flashlight person could not be found, although the officer contacted the lot owner, who asked the officer to check out the lot from time to time "due to nosey neighbors."

Sept. 14, 2:45 p.m. - Police were dispatched to a local garage where a man had an issue with a price on a motorcycle that was repaired.

Apparently, he was unaware that there was a daily storage fee, although the officer on this call told him that the garage was within their rights to charge a storage fee if he did not pick up the motorcycle promptly.

The man paid the fee and left with the motorcycle.

I love reading the police log everyday and it makes me feel good that most of the reports are of the "tamer" nature and not extreme violence. I would like to make a suggestion though, I would like to see the police log start off with the headlining story. The headlines get our attention but then we have to read through disclaimer or this and that before the headline topic. Put all that mumbo jumbo we see in the first paragraphs and put it at the bottom of the page...

Hi Mike, Let me get back to you on that. Also, an announcement -- we'll be posting the names of 17-year-olds arrested from now on due to the fact that they're considered adults under the eyes of the Massachusetts judicial system.
