Dedham police responded to a number of calls during the past two weeks -- some routine, others a bit out of the ordinary. Here’s a look at a few of the more noteworthy ones. All suspects are presumed to be not guilty until proven otherwise in a court of law. A full list is available at 600 High St.
On Aug. 25 at 6:12 a.m., an employee at a business on Providence Highway reported that a man had been on the property since 10 p.m. the night before and was pounding on the door. As the employee was on the phone with police, the man reportedly ran from the area towards a nearby Stop & Shop gas station.
When police located the man near the gas station, he said he had been waiting for Starbucks to open which it had at 5:30 a.m., an employee said on Friday.
On Saturday at 1:36 p.m., a caller reported that he left his debit card in an ATM machine but that a man driving a car with a Puerto Rican license plate was able to remove the card from the machine. The original caller also reported that shortly after he received his card back, he checked his account and saw that money was withdrawn without his authorization. Police forwarded the information to a detective who will investigate the incident further.
On Sunday at 2:33 p.m., an employee at a restaurant in Legacy Place asked two women to quiet a child they were eating with. During the discussion, the women reportedly became hostile towards the employees and eventually walked out of the restaurant without paying for their meal. Legacy Place security approached the pair in the parking lot, but they drove off.
Then at 7:08 p.m. that night, a customer at CVS was reportedly upset after being told she could not use a “Green Dot” card. The woman reportedly kicked and damaged the store door as she was leaving.Police advised the store manager to contact the department right away if the woman returned.
