CraigsList Harassment; Bat in Bathroom: Croton Police Blotter

Here are some of the incidents to which the village police responded last week.

Jan. 28: 4:41 p.m.—A caller to police HQ reported she had posted something for sale on Craiglist and had received an email response. The link in the response took her to a sex website. Then she began receiving emails. She called the Attorney General's office, which directed her to her local police to put it on record. The caller and police agreed the emails appeared to be automated spam generated when she clicked on the link.

Jan. 29: 12:15 p.m.—Police received a call from Asbury Methodist Church about a bat inside a bathroom. Officers were able to capture the bat and send it to the Westchester County Health Department for a rabies check. The bat was found to be not rabid.

12:28 p.m.—A resident came into HQ with a sticky note that had been posted on her car on Old Post Road. The note apologized for hitting and denting the car and asked the owner to call a name and number—which was actually hers. The resident said similar notes had been put on several cars. Police are investigating. 

Jan. 30: 2:50 p.m.—A caller reported men going door to door around Cleveland and Devon avenues. Police located six people soliciting for a home remodeling company. They were issued summonses for soliciting without a permit, a village ordinance violation.
