Pelham Police Blotter: Identity and Bicycle Thefts

The following information was supplied by the Pelham police department's blotter. Arrest information does not indicate a conviction.


Bicycle Stolen, July 3, 2012
A Pelham man told police his bicycle, an Aggressor mountain bike valued at $500, was taken from him while he was eating at Villagios restuarant, located on 229 Wolf’s Lane, on July 3.

The man was watching his bike through the window when he got up to throw garbage away at about 7:30 p.m. He noticed the bike was gone when he returned to his seat.

The man went outside to see if anyone saw what happened to his bike, but no one saw anything. Police tried to check the camera outside the building, but the camera does not record.

The bike is black and white with a bike lock on the middle bar. Police advised the owner to report back to them if he sees someone with his bike.

Fraudulently Filed Income Tax Returns, July 2
A Pelham man reported to police on July 2 that another person filed a federal income tax form under his name.

The man was unable to say when the tax form was filed, but he noticed that his refund check never came.

He then called the Internal Revenue Service, who advised him that someone had stolen his identity and filed his tax return. The case is currently being investigated by the IRS Fraud Department and the Pelham police department.
