Essex Police/Fire: Ipswich woman faces drunken driving charge

Essex Police/Fire

ESSEX — An Ipswich woman was arrested Sunday at 2:23 a.m. on Main Street after police stopped her for driving erratically.

Police arrested Bensleen Henry, 36, of Charlotte Road after determining she was inebriated; she is being charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol.

Sunday at 6:10 a.m., two dogs were reported to be attacking a deer in the area of Southern Avenue.

Police said the person who called could not identify the dogs as they had no visible tags (Essex has no leash law). When police arrived, the deer had already died.

Friday just after 2:30 p.m., police stopped a motorist on Landing Road for driving an unregistered motor vehicle. Police said at least one Marblehead man in the car was issued a civil citation for possession of marijuana.

Police responded to a report of a suspicious person on Dodge Street just before 11 p.m. Sunday. Police could not locate the person, but did find a motorcycle lying on its side; police are trying to locate the owner of the motorcycle.

A large rabbit was hit and killed by a car just before 8 p.m. Friday near School Street. Police said the call initially came through as a dog being hit by a car.

Just after midnight on Sunday, police responded to a house party on Conomo Point. Police said the party goers were of age, but the party was shut down for the night.

Police and firefighters responded to a fire alarm Sunday at 9:12 p.m. at St. John the Baptist Church on Main Street. Police said it was a faulty alarm.
