A Suspicious Car Fire, Resisting Arrest, And Other Tales From The Police Blotter

The Major Crime Unit is investigating after a 2000 Dodge Caravan was engulfed by flames on the corner of Victoria and Elgin in the North End.

The fire looks suspicious and the van was taken in for forensic analysis.

As well, a 22 year old arrested on an outstanding warrant is facing charges after taking a gamble with his life on Chesley Drive. Police got that call late on Friday about someone walking in the middle of the street, with traffic, wearing dark clothing and listening to an Mp3 player and clearly posing a danger to himself and to drivers.

Police checked the man out and determined he was wanted on an outstanding warrant; however, when they tried to arrest him he refused and started fighting with police. He was taken into custody until his court appearance on charges of resisting arrest and breaching probation.
