Today's word on journalism

January 13, 2009


"I get the feeling that the 24-hour news networks are like the bus in the movie 'Speed.' If they stop talking for a second, they think they'll blow up."

Jewelry store alarm leaves no clues

By Melissa Salcedo

December 6, 2008 | LOGAN -- An intrusion alarm that went off at a jewelry store left police scratching their heads with no answer to what triggered the alarm.

Logan Police officers responded to S.E. Needham Jewelers at 5:40 a.m. after an alarm company called to inform them that the store's alarm went off. The store's owners were notified and arrived shortly after.

There were no reports of theft. "There were no signs of entry into the business," said Captain Jeff Curtis. "Everything appeared to be OK."

Curtis added that there were no witnesses.

The jewelry store has had previous problems with the alarm going off with no reports of burglary. Police responded to the store four times in 2005 and twice in 2006.
