This Just In...
Deerfield Police Department, Massachusetts: On Thursday March 6, 2014 just before 4 PM Sgt Krusiewski and officer Puchalski overheard a request for assistance by a State Trooper on 91 in Deerfield, the Trooper was reporting a suspect fled from a traffic stop. Sgt Krusiewski and officer Puchalski responded to the area of the Deerfield, Whately town line and it was reported the suspect ran through the park and ride towards Tri-Town Beach. Officer Puchalski set up with binoculars on the bridge over the rail road tracks and observed the suspect enter the rail road tracks south of his location. Officer Puchalski was able to inform additional responding officers of the subject whereabouts. Sgt Krusiewski teamed up with Trooper Hebert and his K-9 partner and began searching for the suspect. Additional Troopers and local officers were responding to the area including officer assigned to the Northwestern District Attorneys anti-crime task force. Members of that unit intercepted the suspect in a field off Long Plain Road in Whately. The suspect was placed under arrest ten bundles (100 bags) of heroin were discovered in his possession. A great team effort and kudos to the Massachusetts State Police who have stepped up the interception of Heroin Traffickers on Rt 91 over the past several months.

Montague Police Department: Hello. I am hoping someone out there may be able to help us. I am desperately trying to find a picture of former Montague Police Chief Richard "Dick" Cade. I prefer the picture to be of him in uniform if possible. I have placed pictures of all former Montague Chiefs in the front lobby of the Police Department and Chief Cade's is the only picture I am missing. If you happen to have a picture of him or have any ties with his family, could you please pass the message on to them. They can contact me at the Police Department if they can help. Thank You for your time, Chief Chip Dodge
