Tewksbury Police Headquarters.

Tewksbury Police are investigating an ugly incident that took place just hours after the DeMoulas Supermarkets co-CEOs announced plans to replace any workers who did not come back on the job Monday.
A female employee walked into Police Headquarters Wednesday at 6:21 p.m. and asked to speak to an officer. She reported that as she was leaving the DeMoulas headquarters at 875 East St., her car window was smashed by a person she identified only as a Market Basket employee.
Lt. Williams interviewed the victim and filed a report.

Apparently he really, really, really didn't want a subscription
On Wednesday, July 30, at 9:21 p.m., dispatch received a call from a Carnation Drive resident who said she could here a male neighbor screaming for help. Two officers responded to the scene and, unable to get a response from the resident, called in firefighters to be able to access the apartment.
The officers were able to gain access and speak to the resident. It turned out that the elderly man who lived there was neither the victim of a crime nor having a medical crisis. He had been yelling at a person on the phone who had called to try to sell him magazines.
