GREENBURGH, N.Y. — A Garrison woman reported the theft of her blue 2005 Toyota Highlander from the parking lot outside the Crossroads Shopping Center on Tarrytown Road Sunday at around 2 p.m. Greenburgh police said it was the second report of a stolen vehicle in the area in less than a week.

The woman told police she had left the door of the Highlander unlocked and her keys in the closed center console.

The report follows a Sept. 25 incident in which a woman told police her white Mercedes-Benz was stolen outside of the La Quinta Inn's parking lot.

Police said the incidents were across town from one another and don't appear to be related. There are still no suspects at this time, police said.

Also from the Greenburgh police blotter:

• Paulo Pilco, 29, of White Plains, was charged Sunday with third-degree unlawful fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle, a misdemeanor, after he refused to pull over his motorcycle.

Police said Pilco riding without a helmet and that when they attempted to pull him over he continued on, driving through a stop sign and crashing into another vehicle.

Pilco received minor injuries, officers said. He was also charged with an equipment violation and failure to stop at a stop sign.

• A resident of Pheasant Run in Scarsdale notified police Saturday evening that he returned home to find his sliding glass door broken, but no items of value taken. The resident has not reported any items missing since then, police said. Greenburgh police are still investigating the incident.

• A Hartsdale man reported that he opened a threatening email on his home computer Friday morning.

The email from an unknown party said the party was paid $200,000 to kill him, and that the man should send $25,000 to an account to prevent it. The party also told the man not to notify police, according to the report.

Police told the man to contact them if he receives any additional threatening emails.

Greenburgh Police still have not captured the perp who stole 19 laptops from the Theodore Young Community Center over the 4th of July weekend. Given the likelihood that it was an inside job, perhaps that is the explanation.

How about this headline from the Journal News May 2, 2009.
"Greenburgh won't release report on community center probe"
"Town officials are refusing to release a police report of an investigation into financial abuse at the Theodore D. Young Community Center.
The police probe into complaints of corruption by part-time workers did not lead to charges being filed against anyone, but the town has implemented policy changes in the wake..."

Not enough changes apparently.
