---- — Police said a man reported multiple holes from apparent BB gun shots in two of his vehicles, which had been parked in a driveway on the back side of his home on Leverett Street Wednesday about 1:26 p.m.

Police identified three holes in the windshield of a truck parked behind the home and two holes in another vehicle, one in the windshield and one in the passenger side rear door, according to police. Police said the shots seemed to have come from the woods that border that side of the house.

Police said a Flume Road woman told police she at she parked at Walgreens with her handicap placard on the rear view mirror, but returned to find the placard stolen when she finished shopping at Walgreens just 10 minutes later Thursday about 12:35 p.m.

The woman had left her car unlocked while she shopped, police said.

A Farrington Avenue man reported eight sheets of plywood stolen from his home Thursday about 11:18 a.m. and requested police do periodic checks of his property, according to police.

Police separated two women who live at the same address after receiving reports of the women fighting on Elwell Street Wednesday about 6:37 p.m., according to police.

Police said one woman was moving to a home on Foster Street, and the two women agreed to separate from each other for the evening.
