WAKEFIELD — Two juveniles from Wakefield were arrested last night on a charge of selling marijuana out of a car parked on Farm Street.

A caller reported late at night that four cars were parked on Farm Street, including an older model Toyota. Occupants of the various vehicles were observed going to the passenger side of the Toyota and appeared to be “buying something” and then leaving the area, which the caller thought was suspicious.

Police were alerted to the activity and on Patrol Officer Kyle Meehan’s arrival two youths were arrested, one 15-year-old and the other, age 16. Both will be arraigned in Middlesex County Juvenile Court, Cambridge this week.

The arrests were made just after 11:30 p.m.


Other police business on Monday:

• Papers were exchanged at 10:15 a.m. following a minor motor vehicle accident on Bartley Street.

• Wires were reported hanging low on Salem Street at about 10:20 a.m. The Wakefield Municipal Gas and Light Department was notified.

• A Hopkins Street resident reported that a golden retriever was in her garage at 11:15 a.m. She was unable to reach Animal Control Officer Ken Stache. A message was left for him.

• Patrol Officer Matthew Warren responded to a motor vehicle accident on Audubon Road where two tractor trailer trucks collided just after noon. A 48-year-old man from Dorchester was backing up a tractor trailer in a parking lot on Audubon and did not see a 2007 Freightliner operated by a 66-year-old man from Georgia before the two collided. Both vehicles sustained minor damage. There were no injuries.

• Overhead wires and a tree were reported down on Bryant Street at about 4 p.m. The Wakefield Gas and Light Department handled the wires and the Tree Department was asked to clean up the tree debris this morning.

• A 35-year-old tractor trailer driver from Georgia reportedly struck a pedestrian crossswalk light on Main Street at about 4 p.m. and left the area heading toward the Rte. 129 rotary. A caller reported the incident and Sgt. Michael Ryan found the driver a few minutes later. Ryan was told that the driver was making a right-hand turn onto Main Street and struck what he thought was curbing but, in fact, it was the light that was struck. No citations were issued. The Fire Department was asked to fix the crosswalk signal.

• Patrol Officer John Whaley took a report about an assault that happened in the cafeteria at Wakefield Memorial High School earlier in the day. A mother and her 15-year-old daughter went to the Public Safety Building at about 5:45 p.m. and told Whaley that while in a lunch line, another girl punched the daughter in the face. The victim told Whaley that the suspect had been calling her names before the assault. Whaley then went to the suspect’s home and learned that the victim had been harassing her and the suspect was simply defending herself. School Resource Officer Jason Skillings plans to follow up on the incident today.

• A minor collision on Main Street took place at 6:45 p.m. The Fire Department and Action Ambulance also responded.
