At about 4:15 p.m., police responded to BJ's on Providence Highway on a report of a hit-and-run accident. Upon arrival, police spoke with an individual who said his parked vehicle had fresh damage to his front bumper, and that it had appeared his vehicle was struck by another vehicle. 

At 4:25 p.m., police received a report that two females attempted to steal more than $200 worth of lobster before fleeing from Stop and Shop in Dedham. The females reportedly entered the store's self-checkout lane and scanned a number of groceries, but did not scan fresh bags of lobster; they subsequently left the store and were stopped for shoplifting seafood. Staff at the store took custody of the grocery cart that contained the lobsters and other remaining groceries. The two began to reportedly yell and curse as they approached their vehicle, and eventually fled the parking lot. Store employees were asked to contact police should the females return for their paid groceries.

She then said her husband was also inside and they were exploring the area and trying to get a closer look and did not try to cause a disturbance. Police then explained to them that they did not have the right to be there and pointed to a No Trespassing sign.
