LEWISBORO, N.Y. –  Lewisboro police are investigating a South Salem woman’s report that approximately $100 in change was stolen from her home during a service call by a cable service technician.

Police were called to a Reservoir Road home on Tuesday, Jan. 31, by a woman who said that two days earlier a Cablevision technician was at her home working on her cable TV wiring. The woman said she keeps jars of coins on a shelf in the garage that she fills with spare change at the end of every work day. She said she had two jars and that one was missing and the other was only three-quarters full. She estimated the missing change to be around $100.

The woman told police the only other person in home at the time was the repairman. Police discovered that the technician was not a direct employee of the cable company, but a subcontractor. Police contacted Cablevision, but its offices were closed. Officers left a message requesting that the appropriate party contact the police department during business hours. The investigation is continuing.
