Oh My: Crash Landing, Suspicious Ice Cream Truck
We report the region's wacky and unusual police news.
This snake's days in the garage are over - unless he slithers back in.
Shrewsbury police received a 911 call on Monday from a resident who reported there was a snake in the garage. Animal Control responded, captured the snake...and released it into the resident's yard. My question is: how far is the garage from the yard? Additionally, if I found myself in this situation, I might make a special request to release the snake somewhere off of my property.
Plane runs into electrical problems.
...A remote-controlled plane, that is. A man in Northborough crashed his plane into some power lines this week. The man called police, who notified National Grid.
What, exactly, makes an ice cream truck suspicious?
Actually, scratch that question. I did encounter a suspicious ice cream truck years ago, when I visited a friend in Los Angeles. The ice cream truck was driving around at three in the morning. Somehow, I don't think folks are buying their kids snow-cones before the sun comes up.
But a Milford resident's concerns this week about a "suspicious" ice cream truck were unfounded. Police determined the truck was "plugged in" to a home nearby and the owner was going to be moving it the next day.

...a Holliston resident reported a suspicious knock on his door. Officers responded and found an egg on the caller’s front step; they were unable to find who might have put it there.
