911. What is your emergency? It's cold in my house.

Wait for it.

October 21, 2018:

Suspicious activity, Jar Brook; report of door open at unoccupied house. HPD secured the door.

October 22:

Assist citizen, Goulding; caller reports no heat in the house. Advised to caller HVAC contractor.

Crash, 2114 Washington; two Holliston drivers collide trying to avoid out-of-town drivers.

Crash, 650 Marshall; Holliston resident reported an earlier crash with paperwork and paint exchanged.

Suspicious activity, Marked Tree; caller observed 3 students opening and closing multiple mail boxes. When questioned, they responded "Just checking them".

Complaint, pizza delivery man did not have change for large bill but said he would return later. Never showed up (note to complainant: that ruse only works for items under a dollar).

Animal incident, 523 Central; report of a dog running in the street. Then a 911 call reporting a lost dog which returned home during the 911 call (a leash is so much easier on everyone).

Suspicious activity, 24 Water; report of 3 males all in black hiding in a loading dock. GOA (hopefully delivered to somewhere far away).

Crash, Washington & Hollis; Medway driver finds a Holliston driver to meet.

October 23:

Repo Man snatches a 2011 Camry on Hopping Brook Park.

October 24:

Crash, 841 Washington; driver from New York thinks her car was hit while parked at the bank but then thinks maybe it was hit in Providence (Let's hope her deductible is low).

Suspicious activity, Bogastow Brook; walk-in requesting to speak to an officer regarding suspicious text messages (more Spam anyone?).

October 25:

05:30 AM, Suspicious activity, South; caller reports seeing a flashlight on neighbor's porch.

Crash, 89 Cross; Ohio and Tennessee drivers leave Holliston drivers alone for once.

October 26:
