09/23 - 3 arrested on heroin charges



04/27  -  This morning, Walpole PD were involved in a pursuit on Route 1A. A Norwood cruiser was in the chase for a very short time during which it sideswiped a pole. That ended our brief involvement in the pursuit. The car sustained damage, but the officer was not injured. He was checked out at Norwood Hospital as a precaution.

We know that the chase continued through Norwood Center at high speeds, but we were not engaged in the pursuit at that time.


A male subject was arrested in West Roxbury after he abandoned his vehicle. The vehicle also caught fire. We have no additional information at this time.
