BROOKLINE, Mass.

Unique reward for finding famed author's lost dog

Author Dennis Lehane is offering an unusual reward for the person who finds his family's beloved missing beagle.

Lehane says he'll name a character in his next book after whoever finds Tessa, who disappeared from the family's home in Brookline, Mass., this week.

He says on his Facebook page that Tessa jumped a fence at the home, and even though she has been micro-chipped, she was not wearing her tags.

Lehane says Tessa is "smart, fast, and immeasurably sweet."

Lehane wrote "Mystic River," "Gone Baby Gone," "Shutter Island" and other books.

PEABODY, Mass.

N.H. man caught with stolen firefighter gear

A Peabody police officer thought there was something suspicious when he spotted a man walking down a city street in full firefighter gear.

Sgt. Timothy Maroney didn't recognize the man as either a current or former city firefighter. When he asked the man he spotted at about 4:40 a.m. Sunday where he got the gear, the man said he found it in a park.

Police tell The Daily Item of Lynn that Deputy Fire Chief Eric Harrison arrived on the scene and said the gear was brand new, had never been issued, and was missing from a fire station basement storage area where a bulkhead door had been found open.

Kasey Donovan, of Goffstown, N.H., was charged with breaking and entering and other offenses. He was freed on $1,000 bail.
