LEOMINSTER — On Friday, June 24 at 7:29 p.m., Officer Michael Salovardos of the Leominster Police Department was dispatched to a residence on Crawford Street for a report of an unwanted guest.
According to Officer Salovardos’ Personnel Narrative from the incident, when he arrived on scene, he observed Kathleen May, 65, of Spencer, sitting on a stone wall outside the residence, which belongs to her son and his wife.
Officer Salovardos said he was familiar with May who had been trespassed from her son’s residence earlier in the month on June 2. The first time she was trespassed, May was taken into protective custody and given medical assistance. Police say May struggles with “alcohol issues.”
“I spoke to Ms. May and asked why she was there, knowing she was trespassed,” wrote Officer Salovardos in his Personnel Narrative. “I explained to her at the previous call…she was not allowed at that address and was trespassed and at this call she said, ‘I know, [I] want to speak to my son.’”
Officer Salovardos then placed May under arrest for trespassing.
“Ms. May was handcuffed from behind, double locked for her protection and helped into cruiser fourteen,” wrote Officer Salovardos. “Before leaving I advised her son [name omitted] that his mother was arrested and will be removed from his property, he thanked me.”
May was transported to the Leominster Police Department and booked for one count of trespassing.
According to the Personnel Narrative of one of May’s booking officers, Officer Carlos Cintron, he and the Leominster Police Department’s “matron,” Norma Pellechia, discussed treatment options for May, who suffers from alcohol abuse disorder. May agreed to go to Community Healthlink in Worcester.
When May was released on her own personal recognizance after paying her bail, which was set at $40, Officer Cintron and Pellechia brought May to Community Healthlink to receive treatment.
May was arraigned in Leominster District Court on June 27.
