Two Home Burglaries in Hastings

This report was derived from information from the Hastings-on-Hudson Police Department, it does not indicate a conviction.

Hastings-on-Hudson Police believe that two teens, a black male and a Hispanic male, are responsible for two home burglaries in the village on Sept. 4.

The first burglary occurred between 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Croton Avenue. The homeowner reported thousands in stolen jewelry along with a wallet with $50 and cell phone. Some of those items, including jewelry and the wallet, were recovered later that day in the middle of the courtyard at Hastings Gardens. The items sat in the courtyard until someone reported it to police around 3:30 p.m.

A witness reported seeing the two suspects sitting on a bench that morning, near where the items were discarded, and then boarding a bus travelling north.

A Fraser Place resident also reported that their house was broken into between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Both this residence and the Croton Avenue home are close by and are adjacent to the Croton Aqueduct Trail.

The suspects entered the Fraser Place home through an unlocked window in the kitchen where a box of keys was on the windowsill. Police believe the suspects used the keys to open the door and steal an $890 Fuji camera and a MacBook laptop valued at $1,000.

A witness reported seeing the two suspects sitting on a bench that morning, near where the items were discarded, and then boarding a bus travelling north. So based on this eyewitness report. Hastings police will blame it on the minority children ? Not suprising of the continued racial profiling in this community . I live here and I constantly remind my biracial children to remain safe in this commumity ,because if anything happens here they will blame it on the black kid.

Whereas Hastings was once a most unique village in the rivertowns, which prided itself on diversity and it's own authenticity -- it has now become an insulated, self involved, very mediocre suburban community. The face of which is the Mayor of Hastings, Peter Swiderski. Hastings can no longer afford empty verbiage and a Mayor who is more interested in how he is percieved than in the hard nuts and bolts day to day services and protection of Hastings residents. This man has shown no backbone. He has welcomed BP and allowed it to become engrained in the village. See the Uniontown scoreboard. He is more interested in placating entitled residents as himself by building a park, rather than utilize the quarry as a real green facility needed by the village DPW. Parks before cops on the street? This Mayor and his gentrified board seem clueless as to what this state and country and faced with and where we are headed. Their collective hands remain in the sand as the Mayor and trustees carry on "playing village officials" It's about time there is real change in Hastings, or this town and what it once was will be lost forever.

...and if your children weren't bi-racial?
