LEWISBORO, N.Y. – The owner of South Salem’s Mobil Station on Route 35 called police after watching someone put garbage in the station’s dumpster Thursday evening.
Officer Peter Blair identified the offender and asked him to remove the garbage, which he did.
The Lewisboro Police also reported the following incidents:
- A Cross River resident complained Friday of being harassed by cellphone and email by a former business associate. She also told police of suspicious incidents at her home, such as the disappearance of food, the disappearance and reappearance of her cellphone and indications her email was being hacked. Although the complainant had no proof, she asked police to keep the report on file.
- Officer David Alfano stopped a vehicle near John Jay High School on Tuesday, because it had an expired inspection sticker. As he interviewed the driver, he became aware of a strong odor of marijuana. The driver admitted he had marijuana in a ziplock bag. Alfano issued a summons for driving an uninspected vehicle and an appearance ticket for unlawful possession of marijuana.
- During the week, the Lewisboro Police and emergency workers made seven calls in aid of residents in distress. One call was from a father and 3-year-old child in Cross River who were suffering severe abdominal pains and were transported to Northern Westchester Hospital. Another involved a South Salem resident who was behaving abnormally, possibly in reaction to medication. He was transported to Norwalk Hospital.
- A downed power line on South Salem’s East Street led to a brush fire at noon April 3. While members of the Vista Fire Department extinguished the flame, Officer David Alfano notified NYSEG. Three days later, the Vista Fire Department extinguished a chimney fire on South Salem’s West Road.
- The Ridgefield Police asked Lewisboro Police for assistance April 2 with a South Salem resident who was involved in a hit-and-run accident. Officer David Alfano interviewed the driver, who said he was unaware that he had hit anything and would contact the Ridgefield Police.
- The same day, police received a report of reckless driving on Route 123 near Shady Lane. The observer saw a northbound black limo pass three other cars and a school bus against a double yellow line. Although the witness made a note of the license plate, police were unable to trace the plate number or the vehicle.
- When a visiting Pennsylvania man placed his spare tire and wheel on the ground as he cleaned his car at a Route 35 gas station, an SUV ran over the wheel, causing $500 worth of damage, and sped away. The visitor reported to police that the SUV did not seem to have a license plate, so it could not be traced.
