Tewksbury Police Headquarters.

Tewksbury Police found themselves involved in another chase over the weekend. This time to help out another department.
Saturday night, just after 10 p.m., Dispatch received a call from the Wilmington Police, asking for assistance stopping a vehicle that was headed north on Route 38. The vehicle had crossed over the town line into Tewksbury.
Six Tewksbury officers joined in the pursuit, which covered all seven miles of Route 38 in Tewksbury and then crossed over into Lowell. According to a TPD report, the driver crashed his vehicle on Boylston Street in Lowell and fled on foot. A short time later, Wilmington PD reported it had apprehended the suspect.
The suspects name and the charges against him were not immediately available.

So, it probably wouldn't have helped if she had been driving?
A traffic stop for erratic driving led to drunk driving arrests of both the driver AND the passenger.
The incident began at around 10:30 p.m., Friday, when an officer pulled over a vehicle near the Tewksbury Cemetery for erratic driving. Three additional officers provided backup. After a brief investigation, the driver of the vehicle, Patrick D. Litchfield, 22, 14 Colburn St., Burlington, was arrested for OUI-liquor, a marked lanes violation and having an open container of alcohol in the vehicle.
However, a second arrest was made when it turned out that his passenger, Stephanie Flynn, 24, 52 School St., Woburn, had an outstanding warrant for OUI-liquor.

Additional Arrests:
Serey Bun, 30, 163 Walker St., Lowell, was at arrested on Sunday, Dec. 7 and charged with OUI-liquor, marked lanes violation and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.
Ashley S. Campbell, 28, 89 Elmwood Road, Methuen, was arrested on Saturday, Dec. 6 and charged with OUI-liquor, marked lanes violation and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.

Additional Calls:
Sunday, Dec. 7, 11:45 a.m. -- A caller reported three or four ATV, riding on his property, behind his home on Marston Street, near the power lines. An officer spoke to the man over the phone and told him to call headquarters again if the riders came back.
