'Suspicious Vehicles' In Greenburgh Are Not Suspicious After All

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Reports of suspicious vehicles in Greenburgh in early October turned out to be unfounded, town police said on Monday.

After an investigation, police determined that contractors and a home inspector were taking photos of the property and the inspection, police concluded. The home inspection was arranged by a real estate agent, police said in a Monday press release.

On Oct. 7, police announced they were investigating a series of incidents involving two suspicious vehicles, possibly with the same driver, that approached local kids during the week, police said.

The last incident was reported to patrol units by three juveniles in Stonewall Circle in the Orchard Hill section of town, according to police. The juveniles stated that they observed a white four-door sedan, possibly a Honda, with an unknown Connecticut license plate that slowly approached them on Thursday Oct. 6 about 3:40 p.m., police had said. The vehicle was reportedly operated by a white male, age 60-70, with white hair, gray beard and glasses, who began taking pictures, according to police.

Additional incidents, with a man fitting the same physical description but operating a white van with New York plates, occurred Oct.  4 and 5; in those incidents, the vehicle was observed following a juvenile, police previously said.

When approached by the juvenile’s parent, a man fled the area, police said earlier this month.

A copy of the original press release is attached below.
