LEWISBORO, N.Y. Lewisboro police are investigating a case of vandalism at the North County Plaza in Goldens Bridge last week that caused approximately $2,600 in damage.
Police were called to the shopping center at around 9 a.m. Friday by the plaza manager. He told officers the damage had been done sometime the night before. The vandalism included a bent-over stop sign in front of the post office, a missing Subway sandwich shop sign, missing post office signs from in front of the reserved parking spaces, a missing Dunkin Donuts sign from the plaza entrance and missing reserved parking signs for Joel Rosenberg C.P.A. and other businesses on the plazas second floor.
According to the manager, a total of 13 signs was damaged or stolen most of them had been secured to a post or a stone wall. The cost of each sign is around $200.
Police searched the area, including Dumpsters and other possible areas where the signs could have been left, with negative results.
The following items were reported by the Lewisboro police:
On Aug. 13, police responded to a residence on Hemlock Road in South Salem on the report of a 16-month-old baby who had fallen. Upon arrival, police noted the Vista Fire Department and Westchester EMS already were on the scene administering aid to the child. At the request of his mother, the child was taken to Northern Westchester Hospital.
Police invested a fraud complaint Aug. 13 when they were called to a Lambert Ridge Road residence in Cross River. The couple living there reported someone had attempted to open an American Express credit card account and a Chase Bank account in the wifes name. The wife had received a call from an American Express representative who said someone had opened an account in her name in Georgia with a Pennsylvania billing address and attempted to purchase a computer for $1,100 at an Apple store. She informed American Express she had no knowledge of these events, at which point AmEx froze the account and began its own investigation. Someone also attempted to open an account at a Brooklyn branch of Chase Bank and the bank subsequently froze their accounts. The couple believes the wifes ID and Social Security number have been compromised. The investigation is continuing.
Police received a complaint Friday from a Hunts Lane resident in Cross River who reported teenagers in a pick-up truck and a van were congregating at the foot her driveway and cul de sac and had prevented her from entering her driveway the night before. The resident requested patrols to check the area and possibly discourage the behavior.
