OMGPD: Watch That Inspection Sticker Expiration Date, Action at the Post Office & More Police Oddities
Our weekly roundup of some of the more unusual police reports from around the Boston area. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.
If Only He'd Paid Attention to the Expiration Date on His Inspection Sticker
A Newton man was arrested on license charges Feb. 20 after police pulled him over on Commonwealth Avenue for having an expired inspection sticker.
According to reports, the Newton Police officer noticed the expired sticker and pulled the driver over near the intersection of Commonwealth Avenue and College Road. After pulling the driver over, police dispatch informed the officer that the driver had a suspended license. Andre W. Phillips, 24, of 847 Washington St., was arrested and charged with driving with a suspended license, police said. He was also cited for having an expired inspection sticker and having a defective brake light.
While searching him, police found he had a small amount of marijuana on him. Police also found a glass pipe and a clear container with a small amount of marijuana in the car, reports said. As a result, Phillips was also issued a city ordinance citation for possession of marijuana: http://patch.com/A-2pDj

Wait, So 911's Not the Number for Citizens Bank?

More Action at the Needham Post Office
Then, the lovely folks at the Needham Post Office had a drunk to deal with. They called the police to report 'an intoxicated party.' An acquaintance gave the 50-year old from Weymouth a ride home: http://patch.com/A-2xtP
