Gloucester Police/Fire: Traffic stop yields two warrant arrests

GLOUCESTER — Police arrested two people wanted on outstanding warrants in the wake of routine traffic stop Tuesday about 11:44 a.m.

According to police, officers stopped a vehicle for defective brake lights on Madison Avenue and arrested the driver Deborah L. Pitts, 58, of Friend Street on two outstanding warrants, according to a police report.

Ronald W. Nelson, a 39-year-old Summit Street man who was riding in the front passenger’s seat of the vehicle, was arrested on one outstanding warrant, police said.

One of two passengers who had been riding in the rear seat of the vehicle drove the vehicle, owned by Pitts, to her home, police said.

Police filed a criminal complaint against a 45-year-old Veterans Way woman for driving with a suspended and nonrenewable license after stopping her on her scooter Tuesday about 5:56 p.m., according to police.

Police had initially stopped the woman, Donna L. Brien, on Prospect Street because the scooter’s taillight was out, according to police. Police allowed Brien to walk the scooter to a place where she can store it, police said.

A 36-year-old Gloucester man who lists his residence as the Action Inc. shelter was arrested on charges of trespassing at the shelter Tuesday about 7:47 p.m., according to police.

Robert S. Frazier had returned after shelter staff and police asked him to leave for the night because he was “intoxicated” and being “disruptive,” according to police. Upon returning to the shelter, police again found Frazier had gone back upstairs without permission, and arrested him.

A black pickup truck was towed from around 999 Washington St. after the vehicle, originally headed southbound, slid down the hill at the start of Mount Locust Place, spun and struck a small tree.

The vehicle ended up facing northward in the northbound lane about 5:36 a.m. Wednesday, according to police.
