GREENBURGH, N.Y. As another week passes, Edgemont residents are still worried about the potential of a break in . But other items also kept police busy this week. Here is more news from the Greenburgh Police Department.
Missing packages: An Edgemont resident allegedly witnessed someone steal three packages that were delivered to his door. The contents cost over $500 and included an Xbox gaming system. A neighboring resident also reported seeing a suspicious car on their street on the same day.
Child unattended: Police responded to the Crossroads Shopping Center where a woman had come upon a van with an open sliding door. The woman reported that she heard noises from inside the car, and found an infant. When the owner of the vehicle returned, she allegedly told police that she knew the child was in the car, but not that the door was left open. She reported that she expected to only be in K-Mart for two minutes and did not realize how much time had passed.
Impounded car: An officer ran the license plate of a Pennsylvania-plated Ford Expedition van and saw that it corresponded to a Jaguar, police reported. The officer approached the car to ask for identification. The driver allegedly reported that the car was not his and supplied a New York State driver's license that had been suspended seven times. The vehicle was impounded for switched plates.
Missing person: A Hartsdale woman called police after reporting that her husband was missing. She also allegedly found a goodbye letter in his office. Police located the husband near Westchester Medical Center, and he was submitted for treatment and evaluation.
Go on red: A Hartsdale resident was pulled over after driving through a red light on North Central Avenue, police said. A traffic stop allegedly found that the driver's license was suspended in September for an incident in Yonkers.
Smoking furnace: Greenburgh Police and Fairview Fire responded to a fire at a residence. The fire department reported that the smoke was caused by a minor furnace fire. After investigating, Fairview Fire allegedly gave permission for the owner and her mother to reenter the house. The owner reported to police that the furnace is broken and that she will be using electric heaters until it is fixed.
Suspicious bag: An officer reportedly noticed a bag on the ground near a parked car and a jacket lying over bushes. After pulling over his vehicle to investigate, he allegedly saw a man on the phone.

The man offered to show the contents of the bag, which contained a blood pressure cuff and long-sleeve shirt. The man explained he was visiting his cousin and a taxi dropped him off at the wrong house.
