At around 6:55 p.m. on Friday, a woman called to say a “handful” of 14- to 15-year-old youths were making noise on Island Park Road. She asked them to stop, but they wouldn’t. She also believed they took kayaks from a neighbor’s house and was not sure if they had permission to do so.

At 7:05 p.m., a caller said “some sort of dump truck with a trailer” was being driven erratically on Linebrook Road. The caller was behind the vehicle but couldn’t read the license plate on the trailer because it was dirty, and the trailer was blocking the plate on the truck. Police caught up with the truck but later radioed they did not see any driving infractions.

Around 1:40 p.m. on Saturday, a solicitor on a Segway was seen going door-to-door for a pest-control business near Pavilion Beach. The caller said she didn’t see a permit badge and thought it might be a scam. Police caught up with the solicitor, who told them he had applied for a permit. Police said they told him he had to wait for it to be approved before going door-to-door.

On Sunday, at around 2:40 p.m. in Rowley, a motorcyclist was injured in a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of routes 1 and 133. The dispatcher said the motorcyclist went down, but both parties were now waiting in the TD Bank parking lot.

At 2:45 p.m. in Ipswich, the dispatcher said someone wanted to speak with an officer about a bicyclist struck by a vehicle in a parking lot the day before. The person said they believed the cyclist was injured.

At around 4:50 p.m., a man driving on Paradise Road was said to have thrown “random things” into the woods. He was seen by two women who also said he pulled into “many driveways.” The man was said to be in his 50s or 60s and wearing a green reflective vest.

At 5:25 p.m., a caller said they heard a two-year crying on Rosewood Drive and thought the child was stuck in a second-floor window. Police said no one was in the window when they got there.

On Monday, at around 9:25 a.m., someone was said to be flying a drone in the lawn behind the police station.
