On Monday, January 22nd, Mayor Tom Murphy held a meeting to discuss residents’ concerns about coyote sightings in our community. There could be several coyote dens in the area. Village officials as well as the Department of Environmental Conservation are recommending that residents keep garbage in sealed containers. Do not feed the coyotes or leave pets or pet food outside. If you see a coyote, make loud noises to scare it away, and contact your local police department.
Rye Police have stated that two alleged car thieves are now in custody following a late night car chase in Greenhaven on December 11th. A neighbor spotted them trying to break into a vehicle and called police. The suspects sped away and hit a police car before overturning. When the police were able to stop them, they found a loaded firearm on one of the suspects. With reports of a third suspect who had apparently escaped, nearby Rye Neck schools conducted a lock-out as a precaution, while police searched the area.
