GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Two larcenies were reported in two consecutive days at the Elmsford Sam's Club last week, Greenburgh police said.
On Jan. 12 about noon, the store's video surveillance reportedly caught a man leaving the Sam's Club store at 333 Saw Mill River Road with a $500 Samsung recording device. Police currently have no suspects, but the store plans to press charges if the man is identified, according to police reports.
The following day, police said a man reportedly tried to leave Sam's Club at 6 p.m. with two computers, worth $1,000. The store's security guard stopped the man and asked for his receipt, but the suspect keep walking, police said.
The security guard then grabbed the man, causing him to drop both computers; he then ran and got into a gold Honda with Pennsylvania license plates that was waiting for him in the parking lot, according to police. The security guard told police he also saw a woman run out of Sam's Club and enter the Honda, police said.
A check of the vehicle's license plate number given by the security guard did not identify the vehicle that was described, police said. Police did not say if the two incidents were related.
Greenburgh police also reported the following incidents:
- Petit Larceny: A 38-year-old White Plains man reported Jan. 12 that his iPod was stolen from his vehicle between 12:15 and 12:45 p.m. while it was parked in the lot outside the Elmsford Raceway. The man said he had left his vehicle unlocked and his iPod in the back seat when he returned to find it was missing.
- Suspicious Incident: An R.J. Bailey student was asked to urinate in a test tube by an unknown man on the morning of Jan. 12, police said. The boy was waiting for a school bus in the lobby of his apartment complex at 90 Manhattan Ave., when the man asked the boy if he "gets high" and said he needed the boy's urine for a job, according to police reports. The boy's mother called police Tuesday evening and was told to contact police if the unknown man enters the building again.
- Public Appearance Under the Influence of Drugs: A 30-year-old Irvington man was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and public appearance under the influence of drugs Saturday after the man was reportedly spotted carrying two shopping bags entering the woods adjacent to the Greenburgh mulch site on Taxter Road. Police said they found the man by the pond of the East Irvington Nature Preserve at 5 p.m., and he appeared to be under the influence of a narcotic drug.
