  • A 69-year-old female resident of Hickory Hill Drive reported the larceny of four rings, a watch and a necklace and a watch from her apartment.

April 30:

  • Police received a call from a woman at restaurant by the train station that her husband, an 84-year-old man, had disappeared after they'd had dinner. Dobbs Ferry police alerted all other local precincts; he was located about an hour later in New Rochelle. Apparently, the man had gotten a ride there. Dobbs Ferry police officials could not comment on the man's state of mind or whether dementia was in play. 
  • A 24-year-old male resident reported that a man struck his parked car on Main Street and attempted to flee the scene. The witness stopped the driver, who was in a 2011 Ford Edge, and confronted him. The resident called police, who performed field sobriety tests on the driver, determining his to be intoxicated. The man, Victorino Castillo, 53, of the Bronx, submitted to a breathalyzer test, which confirmed that his BAC was more than .18, upping the charge to Aggravated DWI. Police arrested Castillo for both DWI and Aggravated DWI, he was arraigned that night and released.

Regarding the 84 year old man who disappeared after dining at the Half Moon: "Dobbs Ferry police officials could not comment on the man's state of mind or whether dimentia was in play." It's spelled "dementia" and it's "never in play". "oman" is spelled "woman". Who writes this. Guess no one edits it.
