Mount Vernon Arrest
Recently, in Mount Vernon a motorist was stopped for driving the wrong way on the Saw Mill River Parkway also in New Rochelle a man was found to have driven six miles in the wrong direction on interstate 95.

In Carmel, New York a man who worked at Putnam Hospital was charged with the theft of medical supplies. This was the result of a five month investigation. The man was charged with a larceny theft, a misdemeanor. The policies of the District Attorney's Offices in Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess Orange and Rockland Counties are to prosecute those charged with stealing from an employer as those DA offices consider such thefts a violation of employment and trust with the employer. It is critical to defend those charges as soon as possible.

In White Plains City Court a man driving a minivan driver was arrested for a "hit and run" or Leaving the Scene of an Accident, with personal injuries, after he returned to the scene a short time later.
