If at First You Don't Succeed, Get Arrested Again

Tewksbury man busted twice in less than three hours.

A 911 call led to the arrest of a Tewksbury man not once, but twice, in a three-hour period early Saturday morning.

Joseph Sperry, 22, of 1390 Main St., faces multiple charges. None, however, is related to the original 911 call.

Sperry's misfortune began shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 21, when police received a call reporting a male, wearing a T-shirt and jeans, looking into parked cars around 220 Patrick Road. When police arrived, they spotted a man, later identified as Sperry, running into the woods.

Police apprehended him shortly afterward. While there was no evidence that any of the cars had been broken into, Sperry was arrested on an outstanding warrant.

Sperry was released, but police were called back to that same area of Patrick Road just before 4 a.m. Sperry was arrested again, this time on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

She had a license ... just not hers

At around 2:28 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 21, police received a call from a Putkis Road man who reported he had just had a fight with his girlfriend. He reported that the woman had taken his wallet and his license, but did not have her own license to drive. The woman's car was stopped on Beech Street. The car was towed and the woman was given a ride back to Putkis Road, and released with a warning.

As long as he doesn't stop he should be OK

A driver called police at 2:47 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 22, reporting that he was at the intersection of Livingston and East streets and that the driver of a black Nissan Armand was beeping at him, had pulled out a knife and was threatening him. Officer responded and ran the plate provided by the caller. The plater came back to a similar vehicle to the one described, but the Nissan had left in the direction of Andover. Area police departments were notified.

Is Police Headquarters listed in that book?

Police received a call at around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 21, reporting suspicious activity at the Motel Caswell. The caller reported seeing a man with a silver van loading and unloading cars just outside the rooms.

Responding officers spoke to the man with the van and discovered that he was wrapping packs of telephone books for delivery the next day.
