Monday, April 19

9:24 am – Morning commuters – or maybe just errand-runners – had a collision that could be called the battle of the Lexuses. Or is it Lexi? A black 2006 Lexus LL RX4, owned by a Leatherstocking Ln. man but operated by a woman whose license states she resides in Manhattan, collided with a grey 2008 Lexus E35, driven by a female resident of Drake Rd. The two smashed up in front of the Congregational Church on Heathcote Rd. near Post Rd.

The 2006 model was towed to a body shop in New Rochelle, while the other was taken to Charlie's Auto Body in Eastchester, but no injuries were reported.

2:06 pm – A burglar alarm sounded at La Dentelliere, a furniture and home goods store in the village, and police arrived two minutes later. See the full story and keep reading Patch for updates on the store's burglary. 

6:11 pm - A vicious and mysterious animal bit a young girl on Sunday, in Butler Woods, but the girl's mother didn't reach police about the incident at 192 Fox Meadow Rd. at 14 Butler Rd. until this evening. The woman asked that police canvass the area for any possible suspect involved in the attack. Police patrol searched the area, but did not find any such animals, according to the police report, "other than two squirrels, one grey and one black. As
squirrels are quite common, Patrol assumes that these were not the 'unknown' animal to which the caller referred. The woods appeared clear of any dangerous unknown animals at this time."

7:14 pm – A caller reporting suspicious activity reached out to the police department asking them to respond to the area near 100 Brite Ave. and 20 Fenimore Rd. The caller noted that an older Merecedes sedan operated by a white male in his 50's was parked near the intersection and looked suspicious. The vehicle then drove towards Fenimore Rd. and made
a right turn towards Hartsdale. Patrol checked all the side streets in the area as well as
the Hartsdale Train Station and did not locate any vehicle and driver matching the description given.

8:08 pm – A female homeowner at 12 Wheelock Rd. continuously called dispatch until police responded at 8:43 pm to complaints of a mobile home parked in front of her residence. She told police she did not "someone not from this neighborhood" to park in front of her home, and told patrol officers the vehicle had been parked for 1/2 hour outside of her house. Police noted the vehicle was not violating parking rules, but the caller wanted the trailer parked elsewhere. Police told the caller that if the vehicle was parked legally, they could not under law ask the person to leave. The officers then spoke to the vehicle's driver, a chauffeur, who said he was waiting for someone at an adjacent residence. "The vehicle was legally parked, was not obstructing traffic, and will remain at the location for a
short time until the subject arrives. No evidence of criminal activity," stated the report.
