A Hastings-on-Hudson man was charged with trespassing and is accused of fleeing from police after they found him exiting an office building at Boulanger Plaza.
The 51-year-old has not been charged in any of the five office larcenies that have occurred between Dec. 24 and Jan. 25 in the village’s business district. Many of those incidents involved stolen laptops or cash, and showed no signs of forced entry. Click here for that initial story.
Hastings-on-Hudson police set up extra foot patrols during the overnight hours to find the suspects. Village officers observed the 51-year-old exiting a Boulanger Plaza office on Jan. 28 around 5:20 a.m., police said.
