Sleepy Sleepy Hollow
There were three incidents of sleeping persons in unexpected places this week's police reports:
On July 7, a caller reported that someone at 12:23 a.m. was lying down on a bus stop bench at Wildey Street with no shoes on and not breathing. The caller thought the person might be dead. Tarrytown Police were notified and sent to the scene, determining the person was just asleep and sending him on his way.
Also on July 7 at 4:25 a.m., a man on Chestnut Street reported that a woman had entered his home and fallen asleep on his couch. He told police he had never seen this woman and didn't know who she was. Police reported the woman was drunk and contacted her mother who took custody of her. No ambulance was needed and complainant wished no further police action be taken.
On July 12 at 8:59 a.m., a caller reported a man was sleeping on a bench on North Broadway and would not cooperate when asked to leave. Officers were able to send the man on his way.
Pants Down Playground
On July 9 at 3:28 p.m., a caller reported that a child had pulled her son's pants down at playground. A $20 bill that had been in his pocket was reportedly now missing. Police reported that on the scene another child admitted to playing games and pulling down the pants of the boy as a joke. All the youth interviewed said they didn't have the money and emptied their pockets at their own will. The mother just wanted to make sure everyone understood that pulling down another kid's pants as a joke was not acceptable. Everyone apologized. The parent wished no further action taken.
11 Bags of Pot
A woman came into headquarters on July 10 at 9:51 a.m. with a complaint of unwanted voicemails on her cell phone from a man named Irving Molina. Police located Molina in front of Chase Bank in Tarrytown, and with TTPD assisting, placed Molina under arrest for possession of 11 bags of alleged marijuana.
A man came into headquarters requesting a Spanish speaking officer. The translating officer reported that the man, who appeared to be highly intoxicated, stated he had borrowed $200 from a guy name Raul. Two weeks ago, he said he just saw Raul by his home and Raul said he wanted the money back. The man said he told Raul he didn't have the money, at which point Raul allegedly chased him with a knife. Detectives took the man outside to try to locate the suspect.
A fire alarm was activated at 4:38 p.m. on July 12 on the 7th floor of a Valley Street apartment building. Officers reported that a seventh floor apartment had a pot on fire on top of the stove. A resident had pulled the fire alarm on that floor. The building's superintendent put out the fire with an extinguisher and the fire department aired the place out with fans.
