Babysitter Charged With Grand Larceny

The information was provided by Bedford police and does not indicate a conviction.

A 19-year-old Bedford Hills resident was arrested on Aug. 13 after the Hook Road resident who employed her reported to Bedford police they suspected the sitter stole their jewelry.

The resident made the initial call to police on July 18 and said her belongings—including a ring valued at $4,000, a ring valued at $1,000 and a $400 iPod touch—were missing.

During their investigation, police said, the youth admitted to taking the more expensive ring and the iPod Touch but not the less expensive ring. The case is still under investigation because the owner is trying to recover the property. The girl was released into her mother's custody and is schedule to reappear in town court.

Youth charged with drug possession

A 19-year-old female from Armonk was arrested for drug possession after being involved in a two-car accident, police said.

Officers responded to an anonymous cel phone caller on Aug. 13 reporting the accident, which took place at 5:25 a.m. on Route 172 near McClain Street. During their accident investigation, officers found marijuana on the youth. After a return to the police station and more processing, police found envelopes with a white powdery substance. The substance ist still being tested but is believed by police to be amphetimines.

The youth is charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and seventh degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. There were no injuries or medical treatment required after the accident.

In the two above stories 19 year years old are referred to as "youths". I thought that once you were 18 you became an adult? Yes or No.?

Hi Peter, Bedford police officers have previously told me that a person who is arrested who at age 19 and has no prior felony or Youthful Offender convictions (18 and under) falls into a discretionary category whereby the BPD may choose not to release their name and classify them as Y.O.
