Good Samaritans

Londonderry police received at least two reports from Good Samaritans on Friday.

In one case, someone came into the station with a phone and money found on the side of Adams Road.

Sixty to go

But police also took reports of less-than-stellar residents and visitors, including a snatch-and-run incident at Londonderry Quick Stop on Nashua Road.

The thirsty thief got into a car driven by another man and sped off into the night.

In Londonderry, 10 Republicans filed to run for office, while just five Democrats did so.
