---- — ROCKPORT — Police arrested a Rockport man after he was stopped near his Jewett Street home Wednesday just before 10:30 p.m.

Police said 39-year-old Jason Modugno was stopped for operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license and had an invalid inspection sticker.

Police gave an elderly Marshall Street resident a ride home Thursday after reports came in that a man, seemingly confused, was seen wandering in some woods nearby.

Thursday at 8:15 a.m., police said a wire was down on Beach Street, the cable company was notified.

Wednesday around 1:45 p.m., police said a female Pigeon Hill Street was transported to Addison Gilbert Hospital in Gloucester.
