GREENBURGH, N.Y. The man was walking fast and looked nervous, with his hands deep into his pockets.
Thats what the Greenburgh police officers saw when they arrived at the corner of Warren Avenue and Beech Street last Saturday, responding to a call for a physical fight, police said.
The officers stopped Dion Wilkerson, 21, for interrogation and asked him to remove his hands out of his shorts pockets. At first he ignored the request, but then finally produced a zip bag packed with marijuana and $1,112 in cash, police said.
Wilkerson, a resident on Oak Street in Greenburgh, was taken to the towns police station and charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, police said.
That was one of the most notable cases in the Greenburgh police blotter last week. Some others follow:
Menacing with a weapon
A 21-year-old woman called the police last Saturday to report that David Thomas, 56, approached her at Beech Street in Greenburgh, holding a bottle on the left hand and a silver knife on the right, police said. He asked her, Wheres Sean?, and when she said that she didnt know, Thomas started swearing and threatened to kill her, police said.
The womans brother, who was watching the scene from a car parked nearby, came in her sisters defense, and after she said that she was calling the police, Thomas dropped the knife and ran away, police said.
When the police went to Thomass house on Tarryhill Way, he again became verbally abusive, dropping to the ground and causing a police officer to fall and injure his wrist, police said. Thomas was eventually arrested and charged with menacing with a weapon in second degree, assault and resistance to arrest, police said.
Alfred Jones, 57, tried to withdraw $2,500 Saturday at a Chase Bank on Central Park Avenue, using a forged Lousiana drivers license and a forged credit card, police said. He was arrested and charged with forgery, police said.
The manager of a shoe store on Tarrytown Road reported to the police on Sept. 8 that a six foot tall black male with facial hair, who was wearing a black leather jacket, black hat and dark baggy pants, placed a pair of white sneakers under his jacket, and left the store without paying for them, police said. The manager followed the suspect through the Crossroads Plaza parking lot until she lost sight of him, police said.
Police searched the area but didnt find the man.
A woman called the police on Sept. 8 because of a suspicious package she found next to the garbage cans of her house on Caterson Terrace, in Hartsdale, police said. She also told the police that her husband had left the house a few weeks before due to domestic problems between them, police said.
