Regional Roundup: Murder Charges, Drugs, and Arrests
A look at the top headlines around the area for the week of Sep. 9, 2012.
On September 11, 2001, Troy Neubrecker was only four years old. What he remembers of that day is very little as for someone that young to understand what happened that day is near impossible.
“I remember my parents telling me, that’s about it,” Neubrecker said.
11 years later and with a much greater appreciation of the tragedy that comes with growing up and maturity, the young 15 year old from Wrentham stood in front of Town Hall to unveil the 9/11 Memorial that he fundraised over $22,000 for.
Norwood Police officers arrested two men on Monday after a plainclothes officer saw them allegedly engage in a drug transaction.

Sean Curran, 27, of 138 Cottage St. in Norwood, was charged with unlawful possession of class A and C controlled substances.

Haley Anderson, an _Ahern Middle School student and her brother, Casey, were walking home from school Tuesday afternoon when they saw the side door to their 61 Mechanic St. residence "destroyed," according to Foxborough Police reports.
A panicked Haley quickly called her mother, Jobina, at the Igo School followed by 911. Foxborough Police arrived on scene shortly after 2:37 p.m. and thanks to Haley's prompt action, were able to locate and arrest the breaking and entering suspect at another residence on Mechanic Street, according to police reports.
"[Foxborough Police officer Douglas J. Miller, Jr.] was checking the residence of 63 Mechanic St. when patrolman Miller discovered the rear door to this residence was also destroyed," said Foxborough Police officer Shawn R. McKay. "Patrolman Miller informed me of this at which time I informed Foxborough Police dispatch. Both patrolman Miller and I made entry to the residence and found the residence of 63 Mechanic St. in the same condition as 61 Mechanic St. Patrolman Miller and I cleared the first floor of 63 Mechanic St. and made entry to the basement."
