Members of the North Castle Police Department received a report shortly before 8:45 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 1, of a suspicious car that had been sitting on Cox Avenue for more than an hour. When the caller approached the vehicle, she was told that the vehicle was disabled and he was waiting for assistance.

According to police, a pair of officers responded to the area and found two vehicles near the entrance of Lombardi Park in Armonk. One of the motorists - whose name has not been released - had his car impounded due to a suspended registration and was arrested for criminal possession of a forged instrument.

The driver has since been released and is scheduled to appear in court at a later date to answer the charge.
