Deputy Chief Paul Eaves ended a long career in the Chelsea Fire Department on Jan. 3. Deputy Eaves was the son of the late Firefighter Thomas Eaves, so he was a legacy.

His retirement cleared the way for three promotions within the department, according to Chief Len Albanese. The promotions came on Tuesday this week and included:  Ed McGarry as Deputy Chief, Phil Rogers to Captain and Carter Glass to Lieutenant. They were sworn in at the City Managers office on Tuesday, but will be officially sworn in at the City Council on Feb. 26.


On Jan. 9, at 4:20 p.m., Officers responded to a hit and run motor vehicle accident reported in the area near 69 Maverick St. A witness gave officers a plate of the vehicle involved and also stated that the operator had an open container of alcohol on his person. Officers located the vehicle and placed the subject into custody.

Mario Hidalgo-Contreras, 33, of 168 Congress Ave., was charged with operating under the influence of liquor, leaving the scene of property damage, and unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.


On Jan. 12, at 6:33 p.m., officers responded to 26 Carmel St on a report of a neighbor dispute involving the victim caller’s dogs. While en route officers were updated that a firearm may be involved and several shots fired. Officers were confronted by a male party shouting obscenities at them and refusing to show his hands. The subject was placed under arrest for assault with a dangerous weapon. The victim told the officers that the male threatened to shoot the dogs. Other witnesses reported hearing two possible gunshots before the officers arrival. The officers conducted a thorough search but were unable to corroborate any use of a firearm.

Kenneth Peluso, 52, of 93 Orange St., was charged with assault with  dangerous weapon, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.


On Jan. 14, at 03:29 a.m., officers were dispatched to 54 Maverick St. for a report of a Disturbance. While officers were searching for a suspect, they confronted a group of heavily intoxicated males. One male became abusive and attacked the officers. He was placed under arrest for the assault.

Kenny Guzman-Contreras, 21, of Providence, was charged with assault and battery on a police officer.


A preliminary examination of the body recovered from the Chelsea Creek near Marginal Street Jan. 21 did not reveal outward signs of trauma or foul play. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death.

The deceased has been tentatively identified as a 61-year-old male; where his death does not immediately appear to be the result of criminal conduct, his name was not released.
