Isn't one of the lessons in Crime 101 to leave no trace?
Milford Police had their job made easier this week when a hit-and-run suspect left a trail. A caller said a vehicle struck his car and took off: police were able to follow a trail of antifreeze to the suspect's vehicle. But, even if they hadn't found the antifreeze, the suspect had given them another clue: her license plate.
One of the quickest ways to get yourself arrested...
...is to attempt to run down a cop. A driver pulled over for erratic operation in Shrewsbury became even more erratic when she drove away from the stop, making contact with (but thankfully, not injuring) the officer. The woman was arrested later the same day when police spotted her vehicle and deployed stop sticks.
All in the family.
A woman gave up her son this week when a credit card she used to try to buy syringes in Framingham was denied. The woman, who hasn't been charged with a crime, told police that her son, a Marlborough resident, had stolen the credit card she was trying to use. The man was arrested in connection with stealing an elderly woman's purse.
This is a case for ghostbusters!
A Medfield woman was compelled to call police this week when a light went on downstairs, and then off. There was, however, no one home. She yelled downstairs and got no response. When police arrived, they found nothing amiss.
