Harrison Train Station



PELHAM, LARCHMONT, MAMARONECK, HARRISON–Pelham police says a 19 year old New Rochelle man confessed Friday to the series of  gunpoint robberies of commuters near train stations in several Sound Shore towns since January.


Robberies occurred in Larchmont, Mamaroneck, three in Pelham and two in Harrison.


Police arrested Olivier Famby Friday when he was caught with a handgun that had been reported stolen in Pennsylvania.


LoHud reports Police say that Famby told them that he had been scouting out the area of the Larchmont train station for a potential victim prior to coming to Pelham on Friday. When Famby couldn’t find a suitable victim, he came to Pelham to see if he could spot one  arriving into the Pelham station.

      LOL…not sure that I’m resting easier knowing that the guy was scouting out the Larchmont station earlier in the night and left without getting caught!

      Good work, Pelham.
