Police update

compiled by Kathy Coyle

· The case against Rutland Street resident Robert Accetta, charged with rape of a Lowell youth, has been moved from the Lowell District Court to the Cambridge Superior Court. He was arraigned in Cambridge on March 17 and a pre-trial conference will be held in Cambridge on April 22. Accetta pleaded not guilty and was released on $5,000 bail. However, he is under court order to have no contact with anyone under age 17, with the alleged victim or his family.

· The two youths that threw shovels on the roof at the school have replaced the damaged shovel and offered an apology.

· The fence that was taken from a Bellows Hill Road property on March 18 will not be considered a theft until the status of the property on which it sat has been determined; that is, whether it is private property, discontinued town road or county road. Selectman Doug Stevenson is assisting in the determination of the property's legal status.
