Wow! $100K? Where do I apply? I already check doors and pick-up dead rodents. Glad I don’t have young ones in need of transportation any longer or I might have been a ‘person of interest’ as a stalker.

We should be grateful that the Police Blotter mimics the Funny Pages of the past. I read it for a good laugh.
This is news?!
As to most of these posts, does anyone, other than those involved, care?
It’s the Facebook of local legal-but-different or possibly illegal activities–great for people who have nothing else to occupy their lives.
editor sorry you feel that way Larchmonter, but if you’ve been here “since 72” perhaps you’re taking for granted the fact that our police blotter is not as full of murders and scams as many areas’ are. Police activity, and the public’s right to know about it, is a fundamental journalistic principal. I suggest you skip the Blotter in your daily loop read if you find it trivial.
It is almost embaressing some of these posts…should I be a suspicious person if I sit in my car waiting for my child? Is there so little news?
editor: straight from the police blotter!
I must say that they appear to be confusion between police and homecare by some (many) Scarsdale residents. Oh well, if they’re happy to pay 100k$ and pension benefits for door checkers and dead animals pick-ups, that’s OK I guess.
