WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Police said two cousins reported that $3,000 had been stolen from a dresser kept near the window of their Washington Avenue apartment Friday night.
One resident told officers he left for work at 4 p.m. Friday and discovered a dresser with its drawers ajar shifted from its original position when he returned at 11 p.m. The $2,500 cash he kept in an envelope and wrapped in a towel was missing from the furniture.
