Expensive Cab Flee
An employee from Tarrytown's DoubleTree hotel called police on July 26 at 8:51 a.m. to report a dispute between a cab driver and his passenger.

The man and woman were gone upon police arrival and police could not locate them.
The cab driver was concerned that they would file a false complaint against him.
They had told him before they left the scene that they would call the police and say he "pushed them and tried to grab their money," the police report states.

The incident was noted for the record.

The car that hit the railing and the parked car had apparently then driven away.
A woman at the scene said her friend had done it and she could not reach him. She contacted him again and told him to come back to the scene, where he admitted to backing into the railing and car and that he got scared and left the scene.

Boat out of Gas
Tarrytown police received a 911 call for a boat that had run out of gas just north of the Tappan Zee Bridge on July 28 at 12:58 a.m. The boat was not in distress.

Fake Illness to Get Meds
A caller from a doctor's office was reporting to police on July 29 at 2:22 p.m. that a former patient was attempting to have a third party fake an illness in order to get a prescription.

A caller reported to Tarrytown police on July 30 at 5:36 p.m. that a white pick-up truck in the area of Gracemere Road had just unloaded three all-terrain vehicles. The vehicles were possibly being operated in the wooded area. Officer searched the area and didn't find anything.
At 6:18 p.m. a caller told police that ATVs were being driven around South Broadway. Police searched and found several people on ATVs at Gracemere Road. The property owner was on the scene and said the people had permission to be on his property. Police advised parties of complaint who said they would stay on the property.
A woman reported to police on July 31 at 8 p.m. that she had parked her car the night before in the handicapped space on Crescent Drive only to return to find a rubber chicken waiting for her.
She said she had parked just outside her home with her handicapped placard hanging from her mirror. When she came out in the morning to go to work, she saw a rubber chicken had been placed under her windshield wipers. She figured that another driver who uses that space every night may have been involved.
She had reported the incident to her management office and just wanted this on the record at this time.
