Essex Police/Fire: Civil dispute draws police response

Essex Police/Fire

ESSEX — Police responded to a civil dispute at a business on Laurel Lane Tuesday at 2:33 p.m.

Police said the issue revolved around taking granite from a property. Officers told one of the parties involved, however, that the dispute was a civil matter and that should call police if the peace is broken.

Police received reports of a loose dog near a Main Street business Monday around 10:30 a.m. Police said the town’s animal control officer responded and was able to return the dog to its rightful owner on Southern Avenue.

Several false alarms alerted police and firefighters in the past few days.

Wednesday around 2:15 a.m., police said a residential burglar alarm sounded off on Apple Street, but that everything was secure when officers arrived.

A fire alarm was set off Wednesday around 7:45 a.m. on Western Avenue. Police said the alarm was set off by some equipment in the building.

Another burglar alarm sounded Wednesday at 7:50 a.m.. In that case, police said the alarm was set off by some equipment in the Turtleback Road business.
