November 14, 2017

Man in danger of freezing his exposed bits on Bullard  & damned if you do and damned if you don't on Union.

HPD collecting now through December 15, 2017

Vehicle stop with summons, Concord & Colonial; Diego Chauca-Tenezaca of Framingham for unlicensed operation and speeding.

Larceny, Sparrow; stolen checks.

Animal incident, Colonial & Travis; loose pit bull (women and children to get from street).

Suspicious activity, Mission Springs; theft alarm in SUV indicating "theft attempt" on display (a picture of the attempee would be nice).

Eleven traffic stops today.

November 6:

B & E, Old Cart Path; construction trailer broken into over the weekend. Many tools taken. Detective Ryan on the case.

November 7:

Smoke and fire, Turner; burned item on the stove (Honey would you like to stop for take out on your way home?).

Vehicle stop with summons; 550 Washington; Raphael Simoes of Milford for unlicensed operation (a trend is developing).

Crash, Washington & Central; Framingham and Shrewsbury cars spar for position.

Interaction, Union; speed sign deployed.

November 11:

Animal incident, Marshall; large Great Pyrenes dog lost

11:50PM, Vehicle stop with summons; 703 Washington ; Vincente DePaulo of Marlboro for unlicensed operation and speeding (it is written that if you don't have a driver's license then you must speed to avoid attention).

During the reporting period, 30 citations and 11 warnings were issued. Three erratic drivers were reported. No Holliston drivers were abused this week.


Sometimes signs just contribute to sign pollution.

Tina, I went down that street, I believe it was, going over to Winthrop on Sunday. My eyes popped out at 30 MPH sign, as I was going the usual maybe 20 MPH very carefully in that area. Isn't that TOO fast for that street and area? People are out walking their dogs, kids walking etc. I love that entire area and you have to go very slow and be aware there as it's a tight little area and respect that. I would never go as fast as 30 or even 20 is pushing it when people and dogs/kids are enjoying the fresh air!

No one asked for the speed limit sign and trailer to be placed on Union Street. Not sure who it was intended to "satisfy" and definitely don't appreciate the suggestion that anyone in Mudville wants to see speed limits at 30 mph.

I love reading these logs. Thank you for bringing a smile to my face after a tough day at work!

It was nice to see so many out-of-towners come to Holliston to meet. What is even better we didn't get in there way. Jean M.
