I was shocked at the title myself. Identity of the caller is partially disclosed and the culprits were just spoken to??? I am not going to feel comfortable calling to report such activity in future. We need a better protection for callers and better deterrents for people trying Class D substance in public.

Here we go again. I sound like a broken record. The hotels/motels here in Tewksbury are really keeping the Tewksbury Police Department very busy.

Thanks for your feedback, all. I changed the title of the article and the body of the police log as well. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
