Sleepy Hollow Police: Rock Toss, Laundry Fire

A summary of incidents in Sleepy Hollow from Sept. 28 through Oct. 4, 2012

The following information was supplied by the Sleepy Hollow Police Department.


Halloween Starts Early Here 

In the last blotters, teens were “acting erratically” and apparently poking around the Halloween shed in Douglas Park. Now a caller reported seeing a group of three to four teenagers at 11 p.m. on Sept. 29 cross Route 9 (scary) and jump the fence into Sleepy Hollow Cemetery (scarier) with a brown bag in hand. Officers sent and could not find anyone in the cemetery.


Laundry Fire

As Patch reported, a caller reported smoke coming from the basement of 88 Beekman at 3:46 p.m. on Sept. 30. The fire department was sent to and confirmed there was a structure fire and turned of power and gas, evacuating building for a time. At first, the Fire Department deemed the fire suspicious and requested cause and origin team. Arson investigators declared fire accidental. Fire Chief John Korzelius reported that laundry with chemicals on it had "spontaneously combusted" in a hot dryer on the first-floor laundromat.


Rock Toss

On October 1 at 3:50 p.m. police reported that someone had been hit by a rock on Beekman and North Washington. There was a neighbor dispute, apparently “over a female," according to the police blotter, but the victim did not wish any police action and sustained no injuries.

Lieutenant Anthony Bueti said the reported rock “was more of a pebble” and he thought the fight had something to do with one neighbor not liking the other’s girlfriend.


Heavy Flooding

On Oct. 4 at 5:49 p.m. heavy flooding was noted at the rear of 100 College Avenue and surrounding side streets. The DPW was contacted to block off Valley Street at College Avenue and checked the area for other hazardous conditions.

Jumping the fence and drinking in the cemetery, sounds like a good time...and than someone has to go and call the police.
