On April 3 around 5:35 p.m., Master Police Officer Robert Buelte and Officer Timothy King were dispatched to a South Main Street apartment for two 911 calls from Cynthia Saxon Hoffman, 46, of Concord. According to Buelte's report, Saxon Hoffman had called because she could not find her U-Haul keys.
Buelte wrote that when they arrived, they saw lots of garbage outside of the apartment including two bags of empty beer cans. After the officers knocked on her door, Saxon Hoffman answered and, according to Buelte, appeared unsteady on her feet and intoxicated.
"I asked her why she called 911 and she rambled about the day's events, but mentioned nothing related to her calls," Buelte wrote. "I asked her again and she told me that she had called because she could not find the keys for her U-Haul. I told her she should not use 911 for trying to find U-Haul keys, and that if she continued to call for non-emergency purposes, she would be arrested,"
After King and Buelte left the apartment, several of the building's residents told the officers that the apartment Saxon Hoffman was in had been "out of control all day," and that the police had already been there multiple times.
Approximately an hour later, dispatch received a third 911 call from Saxon Hoffman, who was still rambling about her U-Haul key, the police say. Buelte and Officer Steven Martel responded and arrested Saxon Hoffman for disorderly conduct.
Buelte wrote that he brought her to the station and during processing, he found the U-Haul key in her right pocket. Buelte noted that Saxon Hoffman was having "mood swings," raising her voice and yelling. She told Buelte that she was only being arrested because of "how her face looked."
Bail Commissioner Dale St. Laurent set a $1,000 bail. Saxon Hoffman was transported to the Merrimack County House of Corrections.
Buelte wrote that on the way there, Saxon Hoffman again mentioned how she couldn't believe she was being arrested solely because of her face. She said that the charge was not going to go anywhere and that she would "beat it" and the judge would laugh at the officers for arresting her, the report said. She added that her sister was the crazy one - not her - and that she shouldn't be going to jail just for helping her sister move, Buelte wrote.
Saxon Hoffman was due in court on April 5.
On March 27 at around 2:14 p.m., Officer Steven Martel was sent to Dunkin Donuts, 121 S. Main St., for the report of a fraud and an uncooperative victim.
According to Martel's report, Concord Fire was on the scene when he arrived and numerous Dunkin Donuts employees were standing around Coulette Parent, 55, of Merrimack.
Parent told Martel that she had fallen and needed an ambulance to bring her to the emergency room due to back pain. According to the report, the employees told Martel that she was lying.
Martel wrote that Parent's back was wet and that the floor where she fell was sticky.
Martel then watched the surveillance tape. He wrote that, in the tape, he saw Parent enter the building, walk to the registers and speak to an employee. Martel then watched Parent walk over to a cooler, take a soda, walk to an area near the restrooms and pour the soda on the floor, he wrote.
After returning the empty bottle to the cooler, the report continued, Parent placed her hand on the ground and lay down. "It was obvious that she did not fall but laid down in the puddle," Martel wrote.
Parent was arrested for theft and false public alarm. She was given a $2,000 personal recognizance bail and is due in court on April 28.
