New Castle Police Apprehend Gardener in Gedney Park

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- On July 13, 9:33 a.m., a man was allegedly walking through Gedney Park with a butcher’s knife. Officers responded and reportedly found the man was using a sickle to cut down tall weeds and cattails growing along the lake at Gedney Park. The man was advised by police not to walk around the park with gardening tools.

The following items were also reported by the New Castle Police Department:

• On July 17, a domestic incident occurred at 2:06 p.m. between a husband and his estranged wife, who said she had made an agreement that the husband would watch the child that evening but the wife never showed with the child. Five hours later, she allegedly arrived at his place of business on South Greeley Avenue and had a verbal argument with him. No arrests were made.

• On July 16, at 12:55 p.m. at 19-year old male from McKesson Hill Road in Chappaqua came to the New Castle Police Department to report that during the previous evening, he was involved in an altercation with three other young men. However, upon further investigation, the 19-year old said he had been drinking and his recollection was unclear as to the chain of events that resulted in a bump on his head.

• On July 15, a man arrived at a Timberline Drive residence in Millwood for court-order visitation and found that his ex-wife and son were not there. Supposedly, he wanted documentation as to why his child was not available for court-ordered visitation. Police responded to the domestic incident but no arrests were made.

• On July 12 at 8:49 a.m., a resident of Whippoorwill Road in Chappaqua reported seeing a suspicious car. Police said they found it to be owned by a contractor who was working nearby.

Just eight minutes later, a Quaker Lane resident reported a suspicious white van, which belonged to a contractor at the house next door that is under construction.

• Later on July 12, a resident on Joan Drive in Chappaqua called to report a solicitor at 6:30 p.m. Officers located the solicitor, who works for New York Public Interest Research Group, and told him to continue along.
