Police Report: Woman Charged with DWI, Scarsdale Man turned over to NYPD for Hit and Run

pitbullOn Nov. 28, police arrested Jennifer Densen, 66, of the Bronx, on charges of driving while intoxicated (first offense), aggravated DWI with a blood alcohol content of .18 or more with no priors and operating a motor vehicle without insurance. She was stopped at the intersection of Chase and Popham roads following a rear-end collision with another car. After the accident, Densen failed field sobriety tests. She told police she had a hip injury that would impact her performance on the tests, and this was taken into consideration. However, she displayed other signs of intoxication, such as bloodshot and glassy eyes and a strong odor of alcohol on her breath. Patrol attempted to administer a breath test, but Densen only inhaled instead of exhaled. She then told police she was a singing instructor and would not be able to provide a proper sample because she was not feeling well. Following her arrest, booking and processing at headquarters, Densen was released on $100 cash bail.

Hit and Run
On Nov. 29, patrol assisted New York City Police investigate a hit and run accident that occurred in New York City. Police found the car in question parked at Church Lane and Rochambeau Road. While investigating the car for signs of damage, the car owner came out to the car. He was the person sought by NYPD. NYPD was notified. Two NYPD officers arrived and took the car owner into custody and towed the car to an NYPD impound lot.

Car break-in
On Dec. 27, a Farley Road man reported someone entered his unlocked car and tossed items around from the glove compartment and trunk overnight. Nothing was reported stolen.

Scam
A Garth Road man reported a scammer called him, alleging his electricity would be cut off if he did not purchase and provide access numbers for $600 worth of Green Dot money cards purchased by CVS Nov. 27. The man purchased the cards but soon thereafter realized the call was a scam. He contacted Con Edison and confirmed that his account was in good standing. Police helped the man negotiate with CVS to obtain a full refund for the cards, which were intact and whose scratch-off access codes had not yet been revealed.

Package
On Dec. 2, a Penn Boulevard resident reported receiving a package addressed to an unknown person. The package arrived at the resident's address via UPS. Police checked village records for the resident's house and found no history for the package addressee's name. The resident reviewed his credit history and found nothing unusual. The resident said he would arrange for UPS to pick up the package and return it to the sender.

Cars and roadways
On Nov. 27, police issued a summons to a driver, from Whitestone, NY, who was driving with a suspended registration without insurance.

Police issued summonses to illegally parked cars on Sherbrooke and Overhill roads Nov. 27.

Police notified the water department about water bubbling up through a street valve on Herkimer Road Nov. 29.

Police and Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps assisted Greeburgh police. Fresh Direct was notified, and another driver was sent to take over the truck. The man was transported to White Plains Hospital Center.

Police observed a car with open doors parked in Freightway Garage Dec. 1. The owner said his car is used for Chinese food deliveries. He opened the doors intentionally to allow the car to air out.

Eight cars accidents were reported in the village this week.

Dogs
On Nov. 28, a Corell Road woman advised she was bitten by a neighbor's dog while out walking her own dog with her husband on Nov. 26. According to the woman, she encountered her neighbor and her neighbor's two dogs, and she walked over to say hello. When she did, one of her neighbor's dogs bit her left hand and caused her to fall to the ground, injuring her nose and forehead. Later that day, her husband took her to White Plains Hospital Center for treatment. An animal bite form was completed, and police are following up.

A Broadmoor Road woman reported a Griffen Avenue pit bull "strained and snarled" to get at her and dog, while both dogs and their owners were out for a walk Dec. 1. The dog, registered in Mamaroneck, does not have a history of complaints.

Noise
Police informed a Brite Avenue parry host that neighbors complained about noise Dec. 1. The party was ending, and the music had already been turned down.

Kids were walking home on Whig and Hampton roads at 11 p.m., Dec. 1. Police advised them to lower their voices.

Civil matter
On Nov. 28, A Drake Road resident reported a man entered his house without permission. The resident said he "exchanged words with the man" and escorted him out of the house. The man identified himself with a business card before he left the house. He said he had been hired by the resident's mortgage company to take photos and change locks on the house, which the bank was putting into foreclosure. The resident did not report the matter until six hours after it occurred. He explained the delay to police by saying he was a tutor and did not want to miss a session with a client. Patrol contacted the man allegedly hired by the mortgage company and verified the story. The man said he knocked before entering the house. He said the house was in "rough" condition with tarps covering a portion of the roof and the rear of the property "falling down." He thought the resident was not home, and he told police he often encounters squatters or other homeless people living inside structures that are up for foreclosure. After knocking the man said he opened the door and found papers piled "chest high" and other "hoarder-like" conditions. Once inside the house, the man heard music coming from upstairs. He announced his presence and went to the second floor. There, he encountered the resident, who confirmed he had not paid his mortgage for 18 months and had not had contact with his mortgage company in over a year. Police determined no crime had been committed. A report was generated for documentation purposes only.

Lost and found
An LG cell phone was found in Freightway Garage and given to police Nov. 29.
A woman reported losing her U.S. Army ID card somewhere near Scarsdale Avenue Nov. 29.

Firefighters
On Nov. 29, contractors broke a gas service line from a Fox Meadow Road house. They plugged the broken pipe with rags to reduce the discharge of gas. The gas valve was turned off, and firefighters stood by for Con Edison.

An Ardmore Road homeowner reported an odor in the house Nov. 30. Firefighters determined a furniture spray used by the homeowner caused the odor. While checking the rest of the house, firefighters detected a slight gas leak in the basement. They called Con Edison and stood by until the scene was turned over to them.

Firefighters opened windows in a Fox Meadow Road basement to ventilate paint and varnish odors caused by recent painters' work Nov. 30. Further investigation showed paintbrushes left in a drywell behind the house that was connected to a basement stair drain. A gas meter detected readings, and Con Edison gas was called. Con Edison detected a leak at a gas valve. They isolated the boiler and began repairs.

On Dec. 1, a Weaver Street resident reported a burning odor in the house. Investigation revealed the odor was coming from a basement dehumidifier. Firefighters removed the dehumidifier and used a fan to ventilate the space.

This report covering police and fire department activity from Nov. 27 through Dec. 3 has been compiled from official information.
