The following information was supplied by the Wilmington Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

The following is an excerpt from the Wilmington Police log from Monday, December 10, to Tuesday, December 11.

Way to go Patch and Wilmington Police Department for advertising when and where the drug deals are going down so that they can find some other place to deal and not get caught. I guess the taxpayers of Wilmington don't mind paying for a dumbed down department. How many more kids have to O.D. before we get some leadership down there. Take a look at all the parked cruisers in the parking lot behind the station and think about how many officers are on the payroll. Funding this department in its current form is a major shafting of the taxpayers - What a joke!!!!!!!!!

And what, exactly, are you doing for the youth in Wilmington Kevin?
Matt Schooley (Editor) December 13, 2012 at 03:35 PM
Kevin, No one is advertising drug deals. The log entry does not even say what school the caller believes this is happening at. If this is something you are concerned about, maybe you could speak to the recently formed Wilmington Substance Abuse Coalition about your ideas. Matt

How many drug dealers do you think are reading the patch??
Wilmington Mom December 13, 2012 at 04:31 PM
And seriously Kevin, why are you still living in Wilmington if you hate everything about it so much? Do you find joy in making other people miserable?

Personally paying a lot of money in taxes to the Town to fund their education (or lack of it) and teaching them how not to be scammed. Take this video out from the Library Tom. Get a clue !!! http://www.sonyclassics.com/insidejob/

I don't hate Wilmington "Wilmington Mom". Some of us are fed up with hack Town Officials and their causing us to incur high taxes through their incompetence. Don't be so gullible and let them play you for a fool !!!!!!!!!!

I live on the wilmington-tewksbury line. I told the Tewksbury police that a house down the street from me has clearly been selling drugs regularly for at least a year, at least 10 cars daily pulling up to the house. The woman officer told me that I should sit out front, take down plate numbers, how many occupants of the cars and dates and times for a few weeks then contact the police and hand over the information. Nuttiest thing I've ever heard out of an officers mouth.
