Gloucester District Court: Judge continues on heroin charge against city man

A Gloucester man had charges of driving under the influence of drugs and heroin possession continued without a finding for 18 months by Judge Joseph Jennings in Gloucester District Court on Friday.

Steven R. Woodhouse, 28, of 34 Washington Square, was arrested in April 2009 by Massachusetts State Police troopers they stopped his vehicle on Route 128 south.

According to police reports, Woodhouse failed a series of field sobriety tests, but he recorded a 0.0 reading on a breath alcohol test.

Police later found him in possession of heroin.

In dispositions of other cases at court on Friday:

Tina Thurell, 43, of 18 Chestnut St., Gloucester, had charges of check larceny continued without a finding for one year by Judge Jennings.

Thurell was charged in July 2009 after police say she wrote a bad check to Cape Ann Veterinary Hospital.

Robert S. Frazier Sr., 55, of no known address, Gloucester, was sentenced to nine months pretrial probation by Judge Jennings on charges of disorderly conduct, assault and disturbing the peace.

Frazier was arrested in September after police say he threatened to punch a group of teenagers who were hanging out in Maplewood Park. Police said Frazier was also drinking in public.

Meanwhile, Robert S. Frazier Jr., 34, no known address, Gloucester, was sentenced to 16 days already served in jail and six months probation by Judge Jennings after pleading guilty to charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

The younger Frazier was arrested last month after police say he urinated at Burnham's Field while Pee Wee football practice was going on. Police say Frazier was also harassing three men on Pleasant Street and resisted arrest.

Chad W. Whittemore, 31, of 83 Prospect St., Gloucester, was ordered to pay a $150 fine by Judge Jennings after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct charges.

Whittemore was arrested Thursday evening after police were called to Shaw's on Railroad Avenue on reports of a fight in the parking lot.
