Everyday in the Police Report the Motel 6 has a listing. This one has three. When is this TownRead More going to take action against this haven for criminals. It is out of hand and out of control!!

mary what do you suggest they put there. I have seen drug deals from the home depot should theyRead More close them down too it seems to me seeing these arrest shows they are on the look out there . what about the guy who was staying there and reported someone when he was walking his gf to the car. Its off a high way whatever goes there will have the same problems.

Motel 6 in the news again, am I surprised??? When is the Town of Tewksbury going to get the hintRead More that this is a haven for criminals. Something really has to get done to close this place down permanently.

I'm going with hawk's opinion. What he did counteracted the Rolling Stone cover, showing the realRead More truth of what happened. Though it would be nice to know if he received money for his photos or just released them- anyone know?
Matthew April 18, 2014 at 08:06 am
Hawk.....There were no laws broken here. Yes, he may have broken a department policy. But not aRead More policy that should have forced his retirement. Think of this. Police and Fire departments all over the country now post Twitter pictures while on scene working an incident. Obviously if their taking pictures, then their not doing their jobs. Isn't that breaking department policy also? No reprimands happening. I still think this was a lame decission by the MSP.
Bob April 18, 2014 at 02:22 pm
Scott is right. He broke no law and the photos he released were already cleared for not being usedRead More as evidence. I think he deserved punishment but I thought the one week suspension was the right move. To be moved to Athol was a crap move by the State Police or whomever ordered it.

The spineless rodent who murdered Tyler Zanco is still at large. I would hope that, even inRead More Massachusetts, this takes preference over flippin' shoplifters. If I DO spot one of these hardened criminals in the photos, however, I will immediately call 911, and go into self-imposed lockdown!

Donna, if you're going to consider yourself a public figure, you're going to have to be thickerRead More skinned. Look at the disparaging comments made about Sears and Miceli when Sears announced his candidacy. Neither of them are here complaining.

@Bonnie Parker, You couldn't be more wrong in that statement. There are alot of things a person canRead More say to another person and get in alot of trouble. So just keep that in mind, (My right to speak as I like exceeds your right to never be offended,).............. WRONG IN SO MANY WAYS .

Bob: When there is an arrest, the arrested person's name will run in the police log. If it is aRead More summons or a protective custody, however, the name does not appear, with rare exceptions. I hope this clarifies.
Bob April 3, 2014 at 12:26 pm
Matt, I understand the policy and the issue is not with Patch but the log. Many in town have beenRead More arrested without names in the log. Again not a Patch issue. Just pointing out the Animal Farm quality of this town/state/country.

raymay, nice assumptions you just made. I actually do ride the bus and train 5 days a week to andRead More from work. I do deal with the delays in the winter while waiting outside and ride with all the diverse people. I would be a short walk to the Green Line stop at College Ave, and still don't think it's worth the money. Would be convenient, but as stated above, would rather have the money go to improving the existing system (so we don't have cold and hot weather delays) or to expand in areas much less served than ours. Good day sir.

Whipple Road is beginning to flood on Monday morning. (Photo: Wilmington Police Department)
Tom March 31, 2014 at 11:51 am
The previous bridge had degraded enough that the guard rails were not supported. The bridge was inRead More use for 1-3 years after that happened. It only got flagged after someone call authorities. It took awhile to find the right one because each town claimed it was in another town. Will the bridge get inspected after this flood? Since it is now known that flooding damaged the previous version of the same design.
fatty arbuckle March 31, 2014 at 12:59 pm
they always like to claim that the shawsheen is flooding in Wilmington, when in fact the river doesRead More not even pass through the town but only borders a small part, while other surrounding towns bare the brunt of the flooding, the only reason they report it this way is because there's a flood gauge on the river right at the 129 bridge, so they like to say wilmington is flooding and tend to leave out the towns that are actually much worse off!
Dan April 1, 2014 at 07:13 am
Another Massachusetts architectural wonder. 2 1/2 years down, money from each town, and Still floodsRead More over. Good thing they had the guys who did the big dig do the job, or this would really have been a problem...Looks like another tax hike in the future to try again!!!
