Gloucester Police/Fire: Route 128 stop turns up larceny suspect

Gloucester Police/Fire

A 40-year-old Magnolia Avenue woman will be charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon for allegedly throwing a beer bottle at another woman’s face early Sunday morning about 12:16 a.m. at the St. Peter’s Club, police said.

Witnesses told police that Kelly Larosa threw the beer bottle and hit the other woman in the face with it after the two had been arguing, creating a two-inch laceration beside the woman’s eye, police said.

Police were unable to immediately locate Larosa and witnesses said she fled after the fight, so police are mailing a criminal complaint.

Police arrested a 51-year-old Roxbury resident after stopping the woman for driving 85 miles per hour in a 55-mile per hour zone on Route 128 North near Exit 14 Saturday about 10:40 a.m.

A check of the driver’s license notified police that the woman, Karen L. Scipione, had been wanted for larceny, according to police. Police said it seemed like Scipione “had no idea” there was a warrant for her arrest. Police arrested Scipione on the warrant and added a citation for the speed violation, according to police.

Police received a report of about $570 worth of fishing gear stolen from the rear parking lot of Winchester Fishing during the night sometime Friday, according to police.

The items thought to have been stolen from the Washington Street business include 300 4-foot pressure treated wood runners that are used on lobster traps. The wood runners had been left outside on a wood pallet, and the emptied pallet was still in the lot Saturday morning, police said.

Police said there were no immediate suspects, though police believe a vehicle was used in removing the traps.

A Bass Avenue man reported that a $10 t-shirt was missing from a package that had been delivered to his home when he retrieved the box, police said.
