---- — ESSEX — Police and firefighters responded to two false alarms on Spring Street Monday.

Just before 3 p.m. police found that a burglar alarm was accidental. Later at 11:05 p.m., firefighters responded to a fire alarm on the street, but the detector was deemed faulty.

Tuesday just after 6 a.m., police responded to a domestic disturbance on Winthrop Street. Responding officers, however, found that it was a verbal argument and there were no charges filed.

At 10:44 a.m., police checked on an Essex Park Road resident after a call mistakenly dialed 911. Officers found the residence was secure.
