“The “real” crimes will continue to appear in our weekly Police Blotter.
RED LIGHT … GREEN LIGHT … RED LIGHT
A caller reported the traffic light at the intersection of Fenimore and Fox Meadow Roads changing too fast on March 7. Then another caller reported a lot of traffic. Upon arriving, police found “a very small traffic congestion” and the lights working in “proper cycles.” There may have been more traffic than usual because the Bronx River Parkway was closed, police said.
NOW YOU SEE THEM, NOW YOU DON’T
Police received a call March 8 reporting cars parked on both sides of Hampton Road “causing a hazardous condition.” Officers didn’t find them.
Another Hampton Road resident also reported a problem, stating that there were “numerous” construction and passenger vehicles parked on both sides of the street. Officers again didn’t find anything awry, reporting that all vehicles were legally parked.
HIDE AND SEEK

A man on his way home March 8 called police to report that the lights were on in his Fenimore Road house, which was under renovation. After checking it out, officers believe that workers left the lights on.
