A patient at Phelps said she had turned over a paid of gold earrings valued at about $2,500 to a nurse at Phelps Memorial Hospital on August 30 around 1 p.m. and never saw them again.
When the complainant asked for the earrings, the staff now claimed that the property had never been turned over to any staff member, police said.
Police talked to the staff about the complaint and the woman filled out a statement in headquarters.
The case is still under investigation, Police Chief Gregory Camp reports.
Disorderly Conduct Arrests
Police got a 911 call for a fight in progress in front of the bar formerly known as the La Embajada Bar at 134 Cortlandt Street. They found no fight going on but after taking to employees, they arrested two Sleepy Hollow men, aged 35 and 28, on disorderly conduct charges.
Party of One?
A Clinton Street resident reported to police September 2 at 2:54 p.m. that she had an intruder on her property. She told police that someone opened the gate and went down the driveway, leaving several empty beer bottles and vomit in his wake.
Police made a blotter entry at this time.
A caller reported she heard the sound that was possibly a window breaking from the house next door, which was supposed to be empty. Police went to Farrington Avenue on September 2 just after 7 p.m. and nothing amiss with no window broken.
Stabbing in Psych Ward
A nurse at Phelps Memorial Hospital told police that a patient had been stabbed by another patient in the psych ward on September 3 at 3:18 p.m. Police arrested one man and took him to headquarters. The man was taken to Westchester County Jail.
Chief Camp could not comment further on the extent of the injury or the type of weapon used.
Note: An arrest does not indicate a conviction.
