West Newbury Police to Participate in Food Drive Kick-Off for Community Donation Center

WEST NEWBURY — Chief Art Reed is pleased to announce that the West Newbury Police Department is collecting food and toiletries for the town’s first Community Donation Center.

Organized by Pentucket Regional High School sophomore student Tim Beech as part of his Eagle Scout Project, with assistance from the Friends of the Council on Aging, the center is designed to provide a sustainable location for residents in need to pick up a variety of grocery and household items.

The center will be located on the main floor of the 1910 Building, 381 Main St. in West Newbury, and open during Town Hall business hours, by appointment through Theresa Woodbury at the Council On Aging. Woodbury can be reached by e-mail at coa@wnewbury.org, or by phone at 978-363-1104.

To celebrate the grand opening, a food drive will be held on Saturday, April 8, from 9-11 a.m. at the 1910 Building. During the event, West Newbury Police will ask residents to fill a cruiser with goods to ensure the center is fully stocked. Citizens are encouraged to bring perishable items, as the new center now has a freezer and refrigerator available for storage needs.

Additionally, leading up to the event, community members can donate items to the West Newbury Police Department, 401 Main St., and the Senior Center, which is also located at the 1910 Building at 381 Main St. Both have been designated as drop-off locations for donations.

Food items that are needed include soups, vegetables, pasta, pasta sauce, macaroni and cheese, beef stew and frozen dinners, along with toiletries like paper towels, toilet paper, napkins, shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste and cleaning supplies.

“We are always happy and willing to be involved in community initiatives,” Chief Reed said. “The Community Donation Center is going to be a great resource for residents in need and I commend Tim for bringing this idea to life.”

West Newbury Police Arrest Man on Felony Charges for Stealing a Motor Vehicle

WEST NEWBURY — Chief Art Reed reports that the West Newbury Police Department arrested a man for allegedly stealing a motor vehicle from a resident’s home early this morning.

At approximately 8 a.m., Officer Danielle Burrill and Reserve Officer Michael Silvestro responded to a report of a stolen motor vehicle from a residence on Gardner Street. The victim’s wallet and personal belongings were also in the car.

Soon after, the victim received a report that the credit card was fraudulently used at a Newburyport pharmacy, 25 Storey Ave. Both officers responded to the store, where they reviewed surveillance footage. Upon leaving the pharmacy, the officers passed the stolen motor vehicle exiting the parking lot, where officers conducted a motor vehicle felony stop.

Subsequently, PATRICK KENNEY, AGE 31, OF SALISBURY was arrested and charged with:

  • Breaking and Entering (Felony)
  • Stealing a Motor Vehicle (Felony)
  • Receiving Stolen Property (Felony) 

KENNEY is being held at Middleton House of Correction pending his arraignment.

“I’d like to thank both officers for their work on this case today,” Chief Reed said. “Their speed and attentiveness allowed for a quick apprehension of this suspect.”

These are allegations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
