Arrest- Violation of an abuse prevention order

On February 25, 2013 at 2:50pm officers responded to a residence on Parham Road to conduct a well being check on a female party who lives at the residence.  (The exact address is being withheld to protect the identity of the victim in this matter). The request for a well being check came from the Dracut Police Department who reported that they had an intoxicated subject named David Jewers in their custody.  This subject told Dracut Police that he had just left this Parham Road residence; records indicated that there was an active restraining order against Jewers by the female who lives at this address on Parham Road.

Tyngsborough police officers then made contact with the female at this residence.  A subsequent investigation revealed that there was an active restraining order and that Jewers had violated it.  Jewers was subsequently transported to the Tyngsborough Police Department where he was booked.  While in custody in the cell block Jewers urinated on the floor and the cell door and attempted to flood his cell by sticking a blanket into the toilet.  He was also found to be in possession of a prescription bottle which was concealed in his underwear.  The pills were found to be Clonazepam, a class C drug.  The identifying information on the bottle had been blackened out with a green marker.

The Tyngsborough Police Department is charging David Jewers, 41 years old, of 1366 Broadway St. apt#12 in Somerville with;  violation of an abuse prevention order, possession of a class C drug and malicious defacing of property.

Released by; Deputy Chief Richard Howe
