Bronxville Police Blotter: Arrests Made for Theft of Package on Courseview Road PDF Print Email


By Bronxville Police Department

Dec. 20, 2017:  On December 7, at 1:52 pm, Bronxville police received a 911 call reporting a theft in progress of a FedEx package from a residence on Courseview Road. The caller reported that the suspects had fled the area in a gray Audi.

Officers were immediately dispatched, and they located the gray Audi on Pondfield Road at the corner of The Byway.

The three occupants of the vehicle were found to be in possession of approximately 35 stolen items valued at over $2,400, including the item from Courseview Road and a FedEx uniform.

Subsequently, the three men, all from the Bronx, were arrested and charged with criminal possession of stolen property in the fourth degree (E felony). Further investigation led to the discovery that one of the men was employed by a FedEx Ground contractor as a driver’s helper on delivery routes.

The continuing investigation also revealed that a fourth Bronx man, who was also employed as a FedEx Ground driver’s helper, provided the location and time of delivery of the Courseview Road package to the other three men, who were following his FedEx truck in the gray Audi.

On December 9, 2017, at 8:45 am, with the assistance of Yonkers detectives, the fourth man was arrested at the Fed-Ex Ground distribution center at 10 Hermann Place in Yonkers. He was charged with petit larceny and was issued a desk appearance ticket directing him to return to the Bronxville Justice Court on January 3, 2017, at 6:00 pm.

After arraignment, each of the three men who were in the gray Audi was remanded to Westchester County Jail after failing to post bail in the amounts of $25,000, $10,000, and $5,000, respectively. All three are due back to the Bronxville Justice Court on January 3, 2017, at 6:00 pm.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
