WPD Tells Married Couple Not To Park In Fire Lane Of Littleton Road CVS

The following information came from the Westford Police Department

Jan. 7, 7:34 a.m. – An officer was dispatched to Grizzly Bear Circle for legal advice.

A resident on Grizzly Bear Circle said he had contacted Boxborough Power Equipment to repair and change the oil on his snowblower around Thanksgiving.

However, he was unable to contact the company via phone.

The officer called the company the next day and a representative of the company said the snow blower would be returned.

The man received his snowblower back and was satisfied with the service.

Jan. 7, 3:37 p.m. – An officer was called to talk with a tenant requesting advice over an eviction.

The tenant is currently in a verbal at-will agreement in a home owned by her parents. The parents do not live at the property.

Another individual living with the tenant had stopped paying rent, and the tenant was unclear how to evict the individual from the residence and also prevent the individual’s boyfriend from residing at the property.

The officer advised the tenant on steps she and her parents can take through civil court. Additionally, the officer said the parents could request a no trespassing order.

Jan. 7, 8:04 p.m. – An officer was dispatched to the area of Hildreth Street and Boston Road after reports of an intoxicated man walking down the street.

The officer caught up with the man and smelled an odor of alcohol on his breath. When asked, the man said he was walking to his home at Robinwood Circle and he had consumed a few beers at his friend’s house after eating a meal with his mother at Moe’s Mexican Restaurant.

In the opinion of the officer, the man did not appear intoxicated. The man was transported back to Robinwood Circle.

According to the report, the man’s mother dropped him off at the Westford Police Station before.

It was later discovered that the mother believed the man was intoxicated and he had battled alcohol addiction in the past.

Later talking with other family members, the man became aggressive when drinking, although not physical. The family members requested that the man leave until he becomes sober. Although the man complied with the request, he did not do so without hostile verbal remarks against members of the family and the officers.

He was taken to a nearby shelter.

Jan. 8, 7:19 p.m. – Police were sent to CVS on Littleton Road after reports of a dispute between a man and a married couple.

The married couple had parked in the fire lane of the CVS, blocking an entry point for pedestrians into the business.

According to the wife, this was because her husband had a foot injury and could not walk significant distances.

The man advised the couple that they could not park there and a conflict ensued.

By the time the officer arrived, the man had left.

While the officer who had come to the scene told the wife that the man should not advise the couple on parking issues, they should not park there in the future.

The car was not parked in a fire lane when the officer was there. No citation was issued.
