Vandals set fire on downtown sidewalk

On Oct. 17, Peabody Law Enforcement began an investigation into an Oct. 16 fire on Walnut Street in front of Don’s Drugs. Paper and trash were ignited on a sidewalk. The disturbance took place after dark. The case remains under investigation. Anyone with information about the fire can contact Peabody police at 983-2133 or go to and follow the prompts to leave an anonymous tip.

On Oct. 19, police picked up an individual on a Saline County warrant.

Oct. 13 police arrested an individual for disorderly conduct.

Peabody Police Chief Bruce Burke reminds young people that they are to be on a direct route home if they are out after curfew following an activity.

“They need to be on the most direct and accessible route to their home,” he said. “And they need to be continually moving toward home.

“We realize some school and community activities end after curfew and the kids have to have time to get home,” said Burke. “But if we stop them for possible curfew violation they need to be able to show they are on their way directly home.”
