Westford Woman Becomes Victim in Boston Bruins Ticket Scam

The following information was supplied by the Westford Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction. More detailed reports may be delayed due to extenuating circumstances.

Dec. 8, 8:50 a.m. – Police were dispatched to Weetamoo Way for reports of a dog who had earlier attacked a pedestrian and another dog.

The victim was first instructed to clean his wound and his dog’s wound with hydrogen peroxide.

After this, the victim explained that he had been walking three dogs on Appian Way earlier that day when a large German Shepherd ran out of a yard, barking at him and his dogs.

The man was familiar with the German Shepherd, and normally it was contained by an electric fence system without any problems.

On this day however, the dog ran straight through the electric fence and attacked, with the dog’s owner attempting to help stop the German Shepherd

When the officer talked to the victim, his dog, a greyhound, still appeared in shock.

Later, the officer talked to the German Shepherd dog’s owner in the presence of the German Shepherd, who was calm at the time of the visit.

The German Shepherd owner provided the dog’s license and rabies vaccination information, and said he did not know how the dog got past the fence.

The officer ordered that the dog not leave the property for the next several days and that the dog stay on a leash while outside until the Animal Control Officer could follow up a few days later.

Dec. 15, 7:15 p.m. – An officer was dispatched to the corner of Plain and Oak Hill roads to investigate a report of an erratic driver.

The officer spotted the driver down the street at the BP Gas Station and stopped him to discuss the alleged poor driving.

The driver said he was tired from working and shoveling all day, thus likely explaining the erratic driving.

Upon request, the driver provided a registration, but not an up-to-date license.

The officer issued a citation to the man and a licensed driver arrived on the scene to drive the vehicle off the scene.

Dec. 19, 5:08 p.m. – A woman came to the lobby of the Westford Police Department station stating that she was a victim of a Boston Bruins ticket scam that had impacted other individuals.

The scam is currently under investigation by the Stoneham Police Department, and she wanted to document her report so she could bring her copy to the Stoneham Police.

She had spent $100 for two tickets on Oct. 29, met with the seller on Halloween and paid the full amount, getting two tickets that were printed on paper.

She went to the game, but the ticket taker at the entrance had said someone with the same tickets had already entered, suggesting that she talk to customer service.

There she discovered this happened to other people that evening, and that the tickets were duplicates.

She was unable to contact the person she bought the tickets from, who was known to the Stoneham Police for selling fake tickets.
