Cornerstone Argument Escalates With “Bag of Dog Poop” Left At Door

The following information was provided by the Westford Police Department. Anyone arrested is assumed innocent unless proven guilty by a court of law.

 

June 24 8:56 a.m. – A person who works at Westford Florist at Cornerstone Square went to the police station to report an incident.

A day earlier, she had been walking her dog when it was allegedly attacked by a dog owned by a person who works at Premiere Cleaners, the store next door to Westford Florist.

The two workers were able to separate the dogs before anything serious happened, but the worker at Westford Florist alleged that the other dog was off its leash.

She complained to the landlord that managed both properties and said in response she found a bag of “dog poop” at an entrance to Westford Florist later on. However, she said she did not see who placed the bag there.

The worker at Premiere Cleaners corroborated the story regarding the two dogs, saying the door needed to be kept open for his dog to allow it fresh air, but denied allegations of placing the bag at the door.

Police talked to the landlord who said she would issue an order banning pets on both properties.

June 25, 2:45 a.m. – One woman was trapped inside a car after it flipped over near 144 Main St.

The car, a Nissan Maxima, swerved across the road, hitting a large tree before landing on its side.

Only the woman was in the car and she had no injuries under than a sore shoulder.

The woman told police that she had fallen asleep, although she was not intoxicated.

According to police reports, the woman said she was on her way home from her boyfriend’s house on Phillips Drive.

She was issued a citation several hours later at her home on Chippewa Road.

June 26, 6:21 p.m. – Police were dispatched to Plain Road to investigate a man who was allegedly watering his lawn in violation of town bylaws.

The man was found watering his lawn. However, new grass had just been put down, which is an exception under the bylaw.

There was another report of a homeowner on Plain Road also watering a new lawn on June 24, although reports do not indicate whether it was the same homeowner.
