GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Greenburgh police received nine reports of personal property damage from Hurricane Sandy last week.
The calls began as early as Monday afternoon and were ongoing through Wednesday, according to police reports.
Property damage included trees falling through the roof of a Scarsdale home on Rock Hill Lane and a Greenburgh home on Woodlands Avenue, as well as several cars being damaged by fallen trees.
ZaZa Pizza on South Central Avenue incurred damage to its front doors, police said. Sandy's winds also blew a shopping cart into a parked vehicle on Tarrytown Road.
Because of the amount of incidents, police could not estimate the costs of all the damages.
Greenburgh police also reported several crimes in the wake of Sandy's aftermath:
Criminal Mischief: Police charged Terrell Brock of Greenburgh with third-degree criminal mischief, a felony, on Friday after he was accused of smashing a man's windows, demanding water.
Brock, 30, came to the man's home and asked him for water because he did not know where he could get any, police said. Brock became angry when he did not get water and is accused of breaking the passenger-side window of the man's car and a window of his home, according to police reports.
Petit Larceny: Kenneth Hall and Kaseim Lotts, of Greenburgh, and Vernon Hall, of White Plains, were charged after police accused them of trying to steal a town generator on Sunday.
Police received a call that three men were cutting the chain to a portable generator attached to a street light near Knollwood Road and Stadium Road around 3:30 p.m. Sunday. The caller identified the vehicle as a blue pick-up truck, which police found shortly after on Tarrytown Road.
Police stopped the car and, after a second unit brought the caller as witness to the scene, positively identified the suspects as the men who stole the generator. The generator and a bolt cutter were also recovered by police. The three men were charged with petit larceny and criminal mischief, both misdemeanors.
