Police: Unsolved Laptop Theft; iPad Arrest

Coveted Apple devices were stolen in both Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow.

Following the recent theft of 21 iPods from Morse School and a sibling feud over a device that was loud enough to initiate a neighbor's call to police, there are these incidents:

Several Stolen Laptops, Tarrytown

On Oct. 11 at 3:45 p.m., a man came into Tarrytown police headquarters to report that his Mac Book Pro laptop had been stolen from his car along with a Gucci book bag, passport, and assorted DJ equipment between the hours of 10 p.m. Tuesday Oct. 9 and 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10.

This happened, he reported, while the car, a 2007 Cadillac Escalade, was parked in his driveway on Crescent Drive. Police found no sign of forced entry and the complainant was unsure if he left the car unlocked. A case for grand larceny was filed since the value of the stolen goods exceeded $1,000.

In separate incident, a complainant came to headquarters to report her laptop had been stolen from her car at 155 White Plains Road between Oct. 16 at 10 p.m. and Oct. 17 10 a.m. In this case a petit larceny case was filed.

Over in Sleepy Hollow:

On Oct. 16 at 2:21 p.m., a caller stated that a worker’s iPad was missing from the Philipsburg Manor restoration. Officers responded and after conducting a brief investigation arrested one young woman for criminal possession of stolen property in the fifth degree. A witness approached police and pointed out a suspect. Police searched the backpack of a 19-year-old woman from Brooklyn and found the iPad.
