Tewksbury Police Headquarters.

A 22-year old lowell Woman was arrested twice in four days by Tewksbury police, for almost the exact same crime.

Janitza Arache, 291 Mood St., Apt. B, was pulled over on Thursday, Oct. 9, at 7:42 p.m.on a lights violation. Following a computer check, she was arrested and charged with driving with a suspended license and driving an uninsured motor vehicle. Because the car was uninsured, the license plates were seized.

Monday, at 2:43 a.m., she was pulled over again, diving the same vehicle, for driving with no lights and was arrested again for driving with a suspended license and driving an uninsured vehicle. But this time there were two new charges —- driving an unregistered vehicle and attaching illegal plates.

One is arrested, one gets away

One suspect was arrested and a second got away after a Tewksbury Police officer interrupted an alleged drug transaction inthe parking lot of Stadium Plaza.

As the officer approached two vehicles parked side-by-side in the lot, one took off at a high rate of speed. The officer radioed dispatch and reported the car heading toward Lowell. Four additional units were sent to the area.
