Lost diamond

Suspicious activity

Someone spotted on the porch of a Brook Trail Drive residence at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 9 apparently raised a neighbor’s suspicions. Police were called to investigate. The man was simply sitting on his own porch, however.

Vehicle accident

A bigger, brighter traffic warning light was recently installed at the intersection of Groton and Townsend roads to replace a broken device. But the new signal didn’t avert a two-vehicle collision on Monday morning, Nov. 10. According to the accident report, a vehicle entering from Townsend Road was broadsided by another vehicle traveling north on Groton Road. Neither driver was cited in the crash and there were no injuries. — M.E. Jones
