June 3, 5:59 p.m. – A mother entered the Westford Police station to report an altercation between her son and a teenage female neighbor.
The incident took place the previous day at Sandy’s Beach on Elm Road when the son took the teenager’s cell phone into Nabnasset Lake.
The teenager asked the mother why the son would do that, explaining only that he is a special needs child and that something she had done had set him off.
Shortly after this, the mother left for home, but found a very angry man in a pickup truck at her house, upset about the phone incident, also stating that the neighborhood was upset with other things the son had done in the past.
The mother told the man that she would pay the $200 needed to replace the phone and soon afterward had to leave due to an unspecified medical emergency, although her husband said that the man continued to stay at the property, continuing to yell and demand payment for the phone.
An officer at the station asked the mother if she would pay, and she said she would, although she did not have all of the money at this moment and she requested the man stay away from her property.
This officer went to the man’s house. The teenager who owned the phone was home, but the man was not. The teenager said a new phone had been purchased.
Later that evening, the man called the Police Department, saying he was extremely angry because the teenager, his daughter, was very upset over the incident.
He said that the phone cost $449.99, but that insurance would pay for all but $200. The officer told the man that the woman would not be able to pay immediately, with the man saying it would be acceptable to get the money by June 10.
The mother later agreed to this and thanked the officer for his time.

June 16, 8:20 a.m. – A resident came to the lobby of the Westford Police station to report several beer cans, bottles and the remnants of a Styrofoam cooler at Forge Beach, believing they came from a party on the other side of the lake in Littleton.
