Here is a summary of incidents in Sleepy Hollow from June 18, 2011 to June 23, 2011:
11:00 p.m. A man walked into police headquarters to report that someone stole his wallet from Clinton Street Laundry. The man said he took out his wallet, inserted coins into the machine, and placed his wallet on top of the washer. He turned away for awhile and when he looked back the wallet was missing. The wallet contained $30, a debit card and a Puetro Rico drivers license.
8:17 p.m. Police were called to a Hudson Street residence on a report of a raccoon making excessive noise for the past hour. The raccoon was located, and was found to be a baby, likely making noise to find other raccoons. The animal was determined not to be a danger. No further action was required.
2:32 p.m. The Sleepy Hollow Fire Department made numerous entries to residences on Harwood Avenue as they searched for the source of a gas leak that was spilling into the sewer system. Notifications were left for residents informing them of the operation.
3:10 p.m. A mother called police to report that she accidentally locked her nine-month-old baby in a car on Farrington Avenue. An officer was able to open the car and free the child.
11:54 a.m. Police were dispatched to a home on Francis Street where a young girl had been waiting outside and knocking on the front door for the past hour. The girl said she was supposed to be babysat at the location, but no one was answering. The girl's mother was contacted and with the parent's approval, the girl was transported to another adult's home on Beekman Avenue.
10:02 p.m. Police received a call in broken English about an unknown problem on Barnhart Avenue. Upon arrival, police found a highly-intoxicated male who had fallen over, causing a laceration to his head. The man was verbal, but was too intoxicated to give any basic information on his identity. The man was transported to Phelps Hospital by the Sleepy Hollow Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
5:03 a.m. A man on Bellwood Avenue woke up and found that his wife was missing. The woman had left without notice, taking one of the family cars. The woman was later found at the Philpse Manor train station parking lot making a phone call. No further action by police was required.
12:10 p.m. A woman from North Washington Street came into police headquarters requesting an order of protection against a plumber. The plumber had conducted work on her boiler during the winter time that the woman did not approve of. The repairs resulted in a dispute over a bill for the work. Police notified the woman that they couldn't give her an order of protection and that the issue had to be taken up in small claims court.
6:26 a.m. A white Chevrolet van parked near 109 Beekman Avenue had blue paint thrown on it sometime during the night. The paint got all over the passenger side door and front drivers side of the car. Pictures were taken, and a paint can found nearby was secured as evidence.
11:04 a.m. A lion statue ornament was pushed over at a Bellwood Avenue residence. Officers noted the statue was knocked over, but that no damage occurred. There was slight damage to the statue's cement base. The incident was noted for the record.
2:38 a.m. A fight was reported at J.P. Doyles, but when police arrived, everything appeared to be under control. One party had been struck outside of the restaurant, and had sustained a laceration to the back of his head. All other parties involved in the incident had already left the scene. The man who had a laceration refused medical attention.
4:28 p.m. Security staff at Phelps Memorial Hospital reported that a vehicle had been found broken into on the second floor of the parking garage. The passenger side window was broken, but it appeared that nothing had been taken from the vehicle.
12:15 p.m. A man walked into police headquarters to report that his vehicle was struck overnight by another vehicle while it was parked on Elm Street. The damage was to the rear drivers side. However, officers were unable to find broken parts where the car had been parked, indicating that the incident may have occurred elsewhere.
10:45 a.m. A man reported that while he was at Douglas Park with his child he encountered a large number of bees. The man suggested a bee hive might be in the area. Sure enough, a bee hive was located in the playground area. Officers roped off the section of the park and forwarded the issue to the Department of Public Works. The nest was later sprayed with insecticide and police were notified to check the area for bees again the following day.
