Police Aid Woman In Emotional Distress

LEWISBORO – Lewisboro Police were forced to call Adult Protective Services last week when they discovered a woman in severe emotional distress who was living in unfit conditions.

Officer Drew Conetta was dispatched to 11 Birch Spring Road in South Salem on June 27 where he meet with the resident – a Mrs. Alderman – who told the officer there were people in the woods talking and harassing and she wanted it to stop.

The officer was aware that Adlerman had past mental issues and that she had been hospitalized last month because of them. Since being released, she has called the police department several time times with similar complaints that did not make sense.

Officer Conetta spoke with Alderman’s son who stated his mother had stopped taking her medication and that her condition is worsening.  The officer also spoke with Alderman’s daughter who convinced her to go to the hospital for treatment. EMS responded and she was transported to Northern Westchester Medical Center.

While on the scene, police noticed that there was garbage laying all over the front yard and a strong urine odor emanating from the home. Officer Conetta observed the inside of the home, which was filthy and cluttered with boxes and other items. There were motor parts and other debris scattered all about the front yard. A truck on the side of the road was leaking oil onto the grass.  Conetta called the building department and advised them of the conditions. Adult Protective Services was then informed of the situation.
