GLOUCESTER 

Thursday, Feb. 18

10:58 p.m.: A dog was reported to be running around the Bayview area barking. The caller who reported the animal believes that a dog lives on North Kilby Street. 

8:53 p.m.: Police were dispatched to Perkins Street where an officer spoke with a resident who said that he spoke to an unknown officer several days ago regarding his upstairs neighbors who he believes is "spying." He said about a month ago when he noticed that his neighbors had tapped into his internet service without his permission. He called Comcast to fix the problem. Ever since, he has felt that his upstairs neighbors have been watching or listening to him and his family. He showed an officer several tiny holes in different rooms that he said were not there previously. He filled the holes with putty and said he did not see any cameras or other electronic devices in them. From the locations and angles of the holes it is not clear if they were coming the apartment above. The residents can hear footsteps above whenever they go into a different room in their apartment. All of this activity is making them nervous and they are actively trying to find another place to live.
