OMGPD: Tied-up Chipmunks, Lost Bongs and Who Let the Dogs Out (on the Roof)?

A weekly compilation of some of the more, ahem, unusual police reports from around the Boston area. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.

 "Quick, toss it!"

According to Wayland police reports, on June 13 at about 8 a.m., divers in Dudley Pond were looking for invasive weeds when they turned up another weed-related item. The divers contacted police to report that they had found what they believed to be a bong. http://patch.com/A-vwnY

A week later on June 20, police received a second bong-meets-pond phone call. In this case, Allison Laclaire had been diving in Dudley Pond near her home. She contacted police when she surfaced with a broken bong made of clear glass and colored with milky yellow and green hues. In her dive, Laclaire also uncovered a Nintendo game system ... complete with controller attached.


Embezzlement on auto-pay?

The ex-treasurer of two Acton Cub Scout Packs, has been accused of stealing thousands of dollars from both Packs along with a separate accusation of stealing from an Acton nonprofit. Police claim Kimberly Clark, 37, of Acton, even had her family's electric bills on auto-pay: http://patch.com/A-vy0N


"I'm sorry, he's tied up at the moment"

Up on the roof

Last Saturday, Lexington police responded to a report of a dog running loose on the roof of the Dunkin' Donuts and adjacent businesses on Woburn Street. Officers believe the dog was a long jumper, possibly from its window onto the plaza's roof: http://patch.com/A-vt6s


Up on the...hood?

Also last Saturday, in Watertown, a 2005 Toyota Camry parked on Waltham Street was damaged — most likely, police say, by someone walking on the hood, windshield and roof: http://patch.com/A-vy1H


Pedestrians have the right of way, but...

...this one had it all wrong: Lexington police responded to a report of a pedestrian accident in the area of Mass Ave and Grant Street. According to the police report, the pedestrian was transported to the hospital, the operator of the vehicle cited and the pedestrian’s vehicle towed for being illegally parked: http://patch.com/A-vlfT
