---- — GLOUCESTER — Police filed two criminal complaints against a Hopkinton man, Douglas J. Shiavi. According to police, Shiavi had parked his uninsured, unregistered vehicle on Centennial Avenue in Gloucester Tuesday.

Police said they issued the criminal complaint, removed the license plates from the vehicle, and Tally’s towed the vehicle about 6:30 a.m.

Police waited on hand at a Pleasant Street home Tuesday night, as one resident prepared his things and left the residence for the night. According to police, the man had argued with another resident about prescription medications, each claiming that the other had stolen their pills.

Police said the man, 32, claimed the woman stole his Suboxone and Adderall, while she denied doing so. The woman, also 32, told police the man had stolen her Adderall, which he denied. According to police, no charges were filed, but they remained on the scene to ensure civility.

A Prospect Street resident told police that two $300 bottles of wine had been stolen from his refrigerator Wednesday about 12:15 a.m.

According to police, the man told officers he believes employees from a dog walking company who have the key to his house took the wine. The man also reported a $1 bottle of water taken from the refrigerator, police said.

An officer is referring the case of the missing items to a detective, but informed the resident that any dispute between himself and the dog walking company is a civil issue.
