At the time of the arrest of Shelia Gould, Officer Michael Blais noted that there was a large dog in her car. He asked the town’s Animal Control Officer Bob Robinson to have Woodbury to come and get the dog so it would not have to go to the animal shelter. Woodbury came to the scene and was verbally abusive, according to police. Officer Blais asked him repeatedly to simply take the dog and go home. Eventually, the officer said he had to call for backup. He informed Woodbury that he was being arrested for disorderly conduct.

Tip of the Week

In these hard economic times, be mindful of things that look suspicious because they probably are. There has been an increase in thefts in the area. If you see something, call it in even if you want to do so anonymously and police can check it out.

An arrest or summons does not constitute a finding of guilt. An individual charged with a crime is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at a later criminal proceedings.
