Essex Police/Fire: Sewer overflow triggers alarm

ESSEX — When police responded to a report of an alarm sounding on Turtleback Road, they found the noise wasn’t announcing the presence of fire, carbon dioxide or a burglar.

Officers arriving at the scene about 2:41 p.m. found the alarm was tied to a sewer system and was sounding because the sewer had overflowed.

Police responded to a burglar alarm at a John Wise Avenue restaurant twice Friday morning, first at 7:11 then at 10:08. Police said the building was secure both times they checked it.
