On Thursday, August 2, two Mercedes Benz were stolen from Pepe Luxury Cars on Boston Post Road. The report was carried on the police scanner and was confirmed by a newly hired security guard on Friday morning, August 3. The security guard was hired immediately after the theft to work from 9pm to 7am every day......sort of like securing the barn after the horse escapes!.
The theft of the cars was not written up or reported in any news outlet; and, when asked about the incident report for this crime, the New Rochelle Police Department responded with: “no such report.” Needless to say, Pepe has not returned phone calls regarding this matter.
What’s up with the NRPD? Don’t the people have a right to know what crimes are committed in the area? Neighborhood associations are up in arms about this coverup. The more they know, the more security measures they can take to protect their own properties.
It’s a sad case when a police department is not forthcoming with information that could prove invaluable to residents.
