WAKEFIELD — In addition to routine calls over the weekend, police responded to reports concerning the theft of two diamond rings, a break into a bedroom inside an apartment on Water Street, a hit-and-run accident on Green Street and vandalism to a vehicle parked on Murray Street.
On Friday at about 11:30 a.m. a woman from Stoneham went to the Public Safety Building to report the theft of two diamond rings. They had been missing since August 2015, possibly when she was a Wakefield resident.
Later in the day, around 4 p.m., Patrol Officer David Rando went to an apartment building on Water Street to speak to a woman who returned home after being away for the day and found her bedroom door kicked in. Nothing appeared to have been stolen from the bedroom but police noted damage to the door. The matter is under investigation.
