Gloucester Police/Fire: Minor thefts reported at fish pier

Gloucester Police/Fire

Police conducted frequent checks on the Jodrey State Fish Pier on Thursday evening, after receiving reports of minor thefts of small items such as knives and lobsters taken from holding traps.

Officers were also looking out for trespassers fishing off the docks.

An 81-year-old man reported as conscious yet unresponsive at the Azorean Restaurant on Washington Street on Thursday about 5:30 p.m. was transported to Addison Gilbert Hospital by the Fire Rescue squad.

Emergency personnel removed three people who had consumed too much alcohol from Fiesta Thursday night, transporting two to Addison Gilbert Hospital.

A 19-year-old man who was “incapacitated” near the altar in St. Peter’s Square was transported to the hospital about 10 p.m.

Police later transported an “intoxicated” adult man to his Fort Square home.

At about 1:27 a.m. officers transported a 40-year-old woman to the hospital because of her “high level of intoxication.”

An “intoxicated” man, confused about his surroundings, was sent home by police after knocking repeatedly on a door that he thought was his friend’s home early Friday morning.

The residents of the Western Avenue home where the 23-year-old man was knocking reported the incident to police, thinking the man was trying to enter their home about 1:30 a.m.

Police spoke to the man, who said his friends would not let him inside, and explained to the man that he was at the wrong address. Officers checked the man for warrants, and finding none, sent him home in a taxi.

A Somerville man reported a camera worth almost $4,000 was taken from his camera bag while he was filming the NESN television show “Dirty Water” at the Dog Bar on Thursday about 4:40 p.m.

The man told police the camera had been taken from a zippered bag, which the crew left inside the Main Street bar while bringing other equipment out to their vehicle. They realized the camera had been removed from the bag after returning home.

The television crew left a phone message at the Dog Bar to ask if the bar has surveillance cameras and left a message with detectives.
