On May 6, police pulled over a black Chevy Tahoe for making a left turn from Crafts Street to Albermarle Road. The driver, Jeffrey Paul MacLeod, 32, 52 4th Ave., 336, Waltham, was arrested for operating after suspension, no left turn and no front plate displayed. 

On May 6, Newton police responded to Hunnewell Ave. for a report of potential past B&E. Officers spotted that the frame of one of the windows in the rear was broken, and the owner believes that the possible break had happened within the last 48 hours. 

On May 8, officers were dispatched to Manchester Road, where a woman got home from work to find that someone had broken into her home. Police walked through the room, and noted that they had been ransacked. Among the stolen items were a silver tea seat. After canvassing the area, police noted that neighbors also said someone had been through their shed, and another neighbor noticed two marks on the back sliding door, as if someone tried to pry it open. 

Police responded to a larceny that had just taken place at Newton Gas on May 8. The employee told police he was on duty and stocking a beverage cooler when he saw a man behind the counter lifting packs of Newport 100s off the display. Described as a white, thin, tall male, he was wearing a button dress shirt, jeans and a baseball cap. The man yelled and ran to the store's exit, and the employee saw him get into a black sedan and head south on I-95.
