Officer Rider & K-9 Jagr locate loaded firearm hidden near accident scene

On August 10th Officer Rider & K-9 Jagr were returning from training when they came upon a motor vehicle accident on Rt. 114 in Lawrence.  Officer Rider remained on scene until Lawrence Officers arrived, shortly after a large quantity of marijuana worth close to $100,000 was found in the vehicle by the responding Lawrence officers.  Officer Rider & K-9 Jagr then searched an area near the crash where it was suspected that the suspects had walked to, K-9 Jagr quickly located a loaded firearm hidden in that area.   Two subjects were arrested and charged with trafficking marijuana, illegal possession of a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm & unlawful possession of ammunition.

Great work to the Lawrence officers and to our K-9 team, Officer Rider & Jagr for taking a loaded firearm off the streets.

Breaking & Entering – Parham Rd/Makos St Area

On 7/18/17 at approximately 11:30 pm, the Tyngsborough Police responded to a residence in the Parham Rd / Makos St area for a report of a breaking & entering in progress.  The homeowner(s) were at home at the time of the break.

The suspect entered the house by pushing in a wall unit air conditioner, and then crawled through the window.  The homeowner left their bedroom to investigate the noise it made, and saw a short male subject in the hallway of the house.  The suspect then ran from the residence and the homeowner called the police.  A more detailed description of the suspect is unavailable at this time.

Tyngsborough Police K-9 responded and searched the area but did not find the suspect.  Detectives processed the scene and it is believed that the suspect may have thought no one was home as there were no vehicles in the driveway and the lights were off in the residence at the time of the break.

The Tyngsborough Police are urging residents and the public to call 911 or the Tyngsborough Police at (978) 649-7504 if they see anything or anyone suspicious, or if they have information relative to this break.
