Sunday evening at around 10:30pm Shomrim received a call from an alert resident that had observed a young white male in their backyard inside a car. The incident had taken place on Eastern Pkwy between Troy and Albany.
Numerous Shomrim members responded and surrounded the area and called police, many officers of the 77th Precinct responded and arrived on scene with the youth still inside the vehicle. Police arrested the youth and when questioned as to why he was in the car he answered that ‘he was being chased and was scared so he was hiding in the car’.
While nothing was taken from the car and there was no signs of forced entry or any damage police still took him down to the station to finger print him and see if he was involved in any other such mischief.
