NOTES & FACTS FROM THE POLICE BLOTTER
- James Quinones was selected as Officer of the month. Although he was
honored for his volunteerism during May, it was noted that he has been
involved in almost every detail during the last year. Besides his work
with the Reserve Police, Jim is a senior at college majoring in Criminal Justice.
- A bicycle/pedestrian accident on 5-1-99 sent the
pedestrian to a local hospital. Robert Bybarczyk, O.Park,
NY was loading items into his vehicle in front of the Kazoo Factory.
He reported that as he turned around he was struck by a 13 year old
who was riding on the sidewalk. Rybarczyk was thrown over the handle bars
of the bike. He was treated for head & shoulder injuries.
- An attempted break-in was reported at the Eden Pennysaver.
A front door glass was broken and a screwdriver was found that
was used to pry the door open.
- A car fire was extinguished by Eden Police before any serious
damage occurred. The owner of the vehicle reported hearing the
vehicle backfire and then saw the fire under the hood.
- Police took several reports of a criminal mischief in the
Eden Valley/Mill Road area. Mailboxes have been damaged and
3 windows in vehicles were smashed by thrown rocks. Residents
are asked to be more alert and call the police if they observe any unusual events.
- An E.H.S. student reported her purple and pink 10
speed bicycle stolen from the school property while she was in class.
- Yagar/Braymillers reported entry gained to their business
on 5-12-99 by breaking a second story window. Nothing was
missing from the establishment. Later in the month, a pop
machine in front of the store was entered and the cash box and $150 taken.
Entry appears to have been by a key.
- An Eden Evans Center Rd. Resident reported he put a
truck cap out at the road with the intent to sell it. Before he
could put up the sign, the cap was taken. That incident occurred
during Eden's Annual Trash pick-up.
- Dr. Horrigan reported a window broken and a tar type
substance sprayed on 3 walls of his dentist office.
- On May 17th, several unlocked cars were entered in
the Weller Subdivision. Reported missing were 78 CD's
from 2 cars on Merrill and 40 CD's from a vehicle on Holly Hill.

- The Town of Eden Police Department will hold a child car seat
check on June 30th from 4 to 7 P.M. at the Eden Town Hall Complex.
The Eden Emergency & Rescue Squad and the Eden Fire Department have
offered their building bays for these inspections.
Studies show that between 85 - 90% of all child
safety seats are not installed properly. Safety belts and
automobiles are designed primarily for adults. As a result,
compatibility problems will occur between child safety seats
and the vehicle seats and belts. Because of those problems, and
parents not being properly educated in the installation of the child car
safety seat, Eden Police are inviting parents to bring their child and seat to use
to be inspected. Parents will be instructed on the proper installation of the equipment.
More information will be available later this month.
