GREENBURGH, N.Y. While there have been many burglaries around Greenburgh, particularly in the Edgemont and Hillside Avenue sections of town, that is not all that happened in the past week. Here is more news from the Greenburgh Police Department.
Smashed car: A woman noticed that her car windows were allegedly shattered upon returning to her vehicle on Manhattan Avenue. Her tires were slashed and the door was dented. Nothing was stolen from the car.
Tricky alarm: Police were dispatched for an alarm to an address on Saw Mill River Road. While a woman with the key was on location, police canvassed the area and noticed that the front door was unlocked. The woman reported that the front door is often hard to lock.
Firecrackers: Police responded to a report of gunshots at the Mid Central Shopping Plaza. They learned that the gunshots were, in fact, firecrackers lit by two teenagers. A store manager saw the children flee the scene.
Unknown in driveway: An Edgemont woman called police after allegedly seeing another woman standing next to her garage when she returned home. The home owner did not confront the stranger, who was eventually picked up by a Jeep.

Wrong house: A Port Chester resident entered the backyard of a Hartsdale home. Speaking with police, he reported that he was on scene as a landscaper but unsure if he was at the right house.
