LEWISBORO, N.Y. – While two people waited on line inside Cameron’s Deli on Sunday, a pickup truck, described by a witness as possibly a blue Dodge Ram with distinctive white racing stripes, backed into their car and sped away, spinning its wheels as it pulled eastbound onto Route 35.
The witness was able to get a partial license plate number. The victims’ car sustained damage to the rear quarter panel and the rear side bumper, plus smudges of blue paint, all on the driver’s side of the vehicle. Police said the pickup is probably damaged on its passenger-side rear bumper. Anyone with information is asked to contact Lewisboro Police at (914) 763-8903.
The Lewisboro Police also reported the following incidents:
- A Lewisboro police officer on stationary duty along Route 22 on June 6, was passed by a southbound vehicle with illegally tinted front windows. After stopping the car, the officer observed that the eyes of both the driver and his front seat passenger were extremely dilated. In addition, there were two open containers of alcoholic beverages in the car’s cup holders. The driver’s speech was slurred and he was vague about his whereabouts. New York State Police were summoned to the site, the vehicle was impounded and towed away and the car’s occupants were taken to the Somers Barracks for further processing.
- A Cross River resident reported on June 7 that a solicitor came to her door and identified herself as a representative of Universal Global Stars, LLC. Lewisboro Police arrived and explained to the solicitor that it is necessary to obtain a permit to canvass houses in town. Nevertheless, two hours later a Goldens Bridge resident complained of solicitors, two men and a woman, described as representatives of the same company, who asked personal questions about the family. Police followed up but were unable to locate the solicitors.
- There were two reports of possibly rabid raccoons, one on June 6 and the other on June 10. In both cases, a Lewisboro Police officer responded to the sites and, determining that the raccoons were indeed rabid, dispatched them with a shotgun.
