Police: Attempted Burglary on White Plains Rd

Tarrytown Police responded to an apartment where a resident claimed to see a man run from his home.

A caller to the Tarrytown Police Department reported an alleged attempted burglary in a White Plains Road apartment.

Officers on scene said the attempted burglary occurred on Nov. 24 around 6:30 to 6:45 p.m. and was interrupted by the caller and a friend. The suspect was described as a man, approximately 5’9” in height, wearing a black jacket.

The suspect apparently fled on food northbound from the home toward a white car. Detectives searched the area and found nothing.

The case is under investigation though Lieutenant William Herguth said the description of the suspect was “scant.”

Herguth said nothing was reported stolen and police found no evidence of anything being taken from scene.

The tenant and friend told police they had entered the apartment and heard a door slam. They reported seeing the man fleeing outside, said Herguth, “but in essence they did not see a person from inside the place.”

Why the delay in reporting this incident? Too much time has passed. News should be current, not almost three weeks.

Chief was on vacation and info didn't get released until his return, my apologies for the lag!

Not necessary. No need to wait for his approval. There should be second in command to run the department. Does evrything stop if he leaves the room? Too tight a ring of control.

Krista, Does the PATCH suddenly stop working if you leave town? There are others in line who can do the same job. or other jobs if necessary.

To clarify, there is the Lieutenant who is the information officer, but he doesn't release blotters, Chief does, though he can certainly discuss things. So information is accessible but this story had slipped through the cracks until I physically got the blotters.
