LEWISBORO, N.Y. Six cars were damaged in Goldens Bridge on Sunday night in what Lewisboro police are calling a case of vandalism.
Police were called to Cornwall Court at 7:20 p.m. on a criminal mischief complaint. When officers arrived, they were greeted by the owners of the vehicles who said their cars had all been keyed while attending a nearby retirement party. Police noted that some of the damage was severe.
The host of the party told officers that he had no explanation for the attack. He said he has no children in high school and there are no on-going disputes with neighbors. The owners of the cars were all inside his house when the attack occurred.
Police noted that the vehicles were all illegally parked on the north side of street against traffic. Officers suggested that in the future, guests park in the hosts driveway, which they noted was long enough to accommodate a large number of cars, in order to avoid presenting another opportunity for such an attack.
The following items were reported by the Lewisboro police:
Police issued an appearance ticket to a 20-year-old South Salem man on Aug. 20, for possession of a small amount of marijuana, a violation. Officers said that around 9:50 a.m., they pulled over a vehicle on Ridgefield Avenue for a traffic infraction. Police said that during the interview with the driver, he detected the strong odor of marijuana coming from the car. Police said they asked the driver if he had been smoking and marijuana and he said, yes. A search of the vehicle turned up a partially smoked joint. The driver was taken to police headquarters where he was issued an appearance ticket and then released.
Police investigated a harassment complaint at a business on Old Post Road in Cross River on Aug. 22. Officers said that an employee of the business came to police headquarters to report that a woman came to the business and harassed her about dating her former boyfriend. She said that at the end of her shift, she went to her home in North Salem and discovered the woman parked in her driveway with a man in her car. She told police she drove past them and went into her house with no further trouble. She told officers she wanted to report the incident because she feared for her safety. Police tried to contact the suspect but her phone had been disconnected.
