P.I.T.A. on Hollis and a Walpole car in the wrong place at the wrong time - twice.

Traffic enforcement, Marshall; four cars monitored; 27 mph max speed recorded (no money to be made on Marshall).

05:00 PM, Noise complaint, Central; report of loud noises coming from a backhoe. Advised about town noise bylaws (how about advice on a muffler shop?).

February 25:

Animal incident, Francine; two Great Pyrenese dogs on the loose.

Smoke & fire, 1450 Washington; transformer fire.

Crash, Washington & Summer; two cars. GOA. No  details (hard to get details when the combatants leave before the law arrives).

Complaint, Turner; Pizza not delivered. Shop said they tried but no one answered the door (I'll take it).

Wires and limbs down all over town.

Animal incident, Hollis; donkey on the run. (this donkey has been loose before and is becoming a pain in the ass).

Larceny, 406 Washington; report of theft at Vape City.

BWTM: The descendants of those who wrote this law obviously wrote the current self defense laws of Massachusetts
