GREENBURGH, N.Y. – A Greenburgh couple became suspicious after a man claiming to be with the Ardsley Police Department contacted them to report their home had been broken into.
The man called a Chestnut Street resident while she was out around 9 p.m. on March 31, saying someone had broken into her house. The women's husband, a restaurant owner, checked the house to find it secure and then called Greenburgh Police because he knew the house was in their jurisdiction.
Greenburgh police notified Ardsley police, who said the “officer” did not exist and they hadn't had any reported burglaries.
Police also reported the following items:
- Argento and Son called police to report a stolen leaf blower back pack after a customer dropped it off to be repaired on April 1. A store employee checked the machine's serial number to find the store had sold it a year earlier to another person. Police told the store to call when the customer came back to pick up the item.
- A man lit an entire pack of matches and then threw the pack back into a bin filled with other matches at the Christmas Tree Shop on North Central Avenue around noon on April 1.
- Police killed a skunk that appeared to be sick and injured in a parking lot on Manhattan Avenue around 8 a.m. on April 1.
