WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- A federal agent with the U.S. Department of Labor parked his government-issued 2008 Dodge Durango near the intersection of Terrace Avenue and Warren Street Monday night and discovered both right tires had been slashed when he returned Tuesday afternoon.
Someone punctured the tires between 10 p.m. Monday and 1:15 p.m. Tuesday, according to police reports.
The agent said the two damaged tires on the black Durango cost $400.
Other news from the police blotter includes:
- Officers noticed two people passing what they believed to be a marijuana cigarette on Martine Avenue Tuesday evening. Police watched both Christine Ruh, 25, of Eastchester, and Andrew Ross, 27, of Brooklyn, put the cigarette to their lips and "deeply inhale," according to police reports.
Police said they noticed a "pugnent" odor of marijuana as they approached the duo. Officers then recovered the hand-rolled cigarette that contained a greenish-brown substance believed to be marijuana.
Back at headquarters police found two Ziploc bags containing what they thought was marijuana in Ross' front pant pocket. Ruh also had a zmall Ziploc baggie full of alleged marijuana in her front right pocket.
