On Friday, November 1st, 2013, the Lowell Police Department was dispatched to the scene of a burglary at a residence in the 500 block of N. Nichols Street. The burglary is believed to have been committed at approximately 12:30 p.m. A witness stated he observed a white male with a thin build wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans acting suspiciously in the area.
