Norwood police responded to a number of calls this week - 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 137 Nahatan St.
A pit bull took a ride in a police car on Monday around 9:47 a.m. after it was picked up on Washington Street for running through traffic. According to police, the dog was captured, “secured” in the car, then brought to the town’s animal control officer.
Then at 12:41 p.m. police received a call about a larceny. But this time, it wasn’t the usual store reporting missing merchandise. A caller on Austin Street reported that two women were possibly trying to take vegetables from his garden. An officer responded and found the two women at the home. After speaking with them, police reported that the gardener was “satisfied.”
On Wednesday at 9:11 a.m., a child was reported missing from a home on Arnold Road. Police responded to the home and started the search only to find the child hiding in one of the rooms.
Later that night around 10:11 p.m., near Norwood Junior High School, police received multiple calls about two teenagers trying to string a rope or chain across the road. Just minutes later, another caller reported a similar situation on Bellevue Avenue. Officers responded to both areas, but were not able to locate anyone matching the description or the items callers said the teens were stringing across the road.
