Police Continue Search For Car Vandalism Culprits

The vandalized cars were mostly parked on the roadside on Middletown, Brewery and Germonds roads

At Tuesday night's Clarkstown Town Board Workshop meeting, Clarkstown Police Chief Michael Sullivan gave an update on cars that had recently been vandalized.

"Last Sunday, we received numerous reports, over 20, of criminal mischief in vehicles in New City, Bardonia and the Nanuet area," said Sullivan. "Not all of them, but most of these vehicles were parked on the street. The damages were done mostly with rocks, however, there were some mailboxes taken down and thrown through the windows."

Rocks were used to break windows in at least 15 incidents, according to Sgt. Jo Anne Fratianni.

"The rocks were thrown, sometimes three of them, at cars damaging both the hoods and the doors and breaking the windows. It was pretty much a mess," said Sullivan. 

He added that the only report they received was from residents that said they heard some noise around 1 a.m. but they didn't look since they thought it was thunder or fireworks. 

"The criminal mischief was along the Middletown road area corridor, but they spread on to Brewery road and down Germonds Road," said Sullivan. "It sounds like a couple of youngsters went on a rampage but that’s what we have so far."

 are seeking tips from anyone who may have information. 

The damage:

  • 13 rear windshields broken
  • 5 front windshields broken
  • 3 driver side windows broken
  • 1 passenger side window broken
  • 2 unspecified windows broken
  • 2 driver side mirrors broken

Surely your contradict yourself. If you weren't interested in intellectual and lively debate and solutions, why do you blog so frequently? How can my comments about an impending depression be construed as "entertainment"? It's obvious that you're a townie who is threatened by any idea that isn't sanctioned by the good ole boys club. Keep drinking the kool aide and you'll end up an insipid mind slave. Just remember "In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act". George Orwell
9:32 am on Wednesday, July 11, 2012 SO ANYONE THINK THIS CANT HAPPEN?????THE COUNTY IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN...AND THE ALL THE LITTLE TOWNS ARE WEARING LIFE PRESERVERS.NOW THAT IS A FUNNY VISUAL...AND SOME ARE WEARING 2 OR 3 LIFE JACKETS..unless the pictures we see of those in carge are photoshopped la Grande!!! Yesterday, in an unexpected vote, the city council of San Bernardino, California declared bankruptcy. Joining Stockton and Mammoth Lakes, it becomes the third California city in less than a month to seek bankruptcy protection. As the Los Angeles Times reports, The unexpected vote came at the suggestion of the interim city manager, who said the city faces a $46-million deficit and depleted coffers. "We have an immediate cash flow issue," Andrea Miller told the mayor and seven-member City Council. Mayor Patrick Morris called the decision, passed on a 4-2 vote, a "stain" on the city. But he said the only other option was "draconian cuts" to all city services, including the police and fire departments.

Maybe you got a bad copy of the contract, because it does not say that they get 81 days off a year, that is how you are playing the numbers. and many companies have even more then 4-7 sick and 3-4 personal and many companies have the option to give an employee off the time that they feel is necessary or fair, since they can do that.

Perhaps you can print your version? Lay it out forthe taxpayers instead of criticizing others. It will give you some credibility...right now you have none. I say it's 81and you say it is ........??????????!
