An excerpt from the Dedham Police Department's April 15-18 police log.
The following is an excerpt from the Dedham Police Department log. Please note that this is a sampling of activity in the log, not a complete account. We report all arrests included in the daily police log.
- At 10:33 p.m., police stopped a Nissan Maxima on Greenlodge Street for an expired inspection sticker. When officer Kevin Mahoney approached the vehicle, he stated he noticed a bottle of alcohol in the backseat next to a passenger that didn't look of age. A second passenger, an unidentified 19-year-old, was found with a opened bottle of Captain Morgan rum and a Coca-Cola bottle, according to the police report. The driver of the car was an unidentified 21-year-old, who told police he purchased the alcohol for himself, a report stated. Police had the three men to empty out the bottle of rum, and police confiscated two bottles of wine. The men were released without charges.
- At 2:59 p.m., a woman reported to police that she lost her wedding ring at T.J. Maxx or Stop and Shop on April 15 at around 12:45 p.m.
- At 7:19 p.m., a Carol Drive resident reported to police that her Apple laptop was stolen.
- At 8:54 p.m., the manager of Planet Fitness reported to police that at 6:30 p.m, an employee was cashing out the register when a customer asked for his assistance. He placed an envelope with approximately $175 cash, register tape and credit card receipts from that day on a shelf behind the front desk. When the employee returned, the money was missing. The employee told his boss that he didn't see anyone go behind the counter, and didn't notice the envelope was missing until after the gym closed. Police are continuing an investigation.
- At 12:13 p.m., police responded to Veterans Road for a report of a 1998 Nissan broken into overnight. The caller told police that the rear window was shattered, but nothing was taken from the car. The caller believed it had to do with another man over an ex-girlfriend, according to a police report.
- At 2:28 p.m., police responded to the scene of a two-car accident at the corner of Providence Highway and Elm Street. The driver of the first car told police that she was hit from behind and complained of head and face injuries from hitting her steering wheel. The driver of the second car told police that the other driver stopped suddenly, and he only "tapped" her, a report states. Officer Keith Kennedy noted that the only damage was a scratch to the first car's bumper. Kennedy added he believed the woman's injuries were because she wasn't wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
- At 6:26 p.m., police arrested 43-year-old Hector Ramirez, of Brookline, for allegedly stealing two wallets and a small bottle of cologne from Sears. Officer Michael McMillan also stated Ramirez resisted arrest by continually refusing to put his hands behind his back to be handcuffed.
