Woman Banned From Cornerstone UPS Store Claims Employee Is Harassing Her

The following information came from the Westford Police Department. Anyone arrested is innocent unless proven guilty by a court of law. All information is posted as soon as possible.

Feb. 27, 11:04 a.m. – One resident on Concord Road called to complain about noise at Westford Earth Materials, which is located nearby on Powers Road.

The resident was upset that there was noise going on at 7 a.m., but the officer said the business was within its rights to operate at that time.

In response, the resident said he would contact officials within town government and the officer said he would talk to someone at Westford Earth Materials.

There was only one person on site, a man from Maine who was there splitting logs and grinding them up. He had been told to be there Monday to Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The officer found nothing wrong and thanked the Maine man for his time.

Feb. 27, 5:24 p.m. – A woman talked with police about recent phone calls she had been receiving.

Over the past several weeks, she had received phone calls from various numbers, most of which had a Westford ID.

She believes the calls were coming from an employee at the UPS store at Cornerstone Square, where she had been banned after two negative experiences.

The woman provided no information as to why these calls might be happening, other than mentioning the negative experiences.

In response, the officer said that businesses do have the right to ask customers for personal information while doing a transaction, but the woman refused to say that was the case here.

He also told her that it might be phone scams or wrong numbers, but she insisted that these things did not happen until her incident at the UPS store.

The officer then said he could provide assistance to the woman on how to obtain a harassment prevention order and he could talk to UPS and the other phone numbers, but that customer service issues are not a police matter.

Police then touched base with the UPS store employees, who indicated that they were unaware of any incidents and said the woman could contact the UPS corporate offices to express her displeasure if needed.

The only other phone number mentioned in the report belonged to Wachusett Brewing Company, who accidentally called the woman.

Despite these findings, the woman believed something more nefarious was happening, but she was thankful for the investigation.

April 5, 5:14 p.m. – Benjamin Brunelle, 34, of 1 Rocky Point in Carlisle was arrested following following a motor vehicle stop on Carlisle Road.

Brunelle was charged with alleged failure to appear upon personal recognizance.
