10/31/07 - Port Chester police search for liquor store armed robbers.

Police are seeking two men, and possibly a third, who robbed the Varmax Liquor Pantry wearing skull masks and carrying a shotgun.

Police said today that two masked and gloved men burst into the 16 Putnam Ave. store at 9:58 p.m. Saturday dressed in black hoodies and blue jeans and ordered the four employees inside onto the floor. One wore black and white sneakers, police said.

Only one of the store's four registers was unlocked and the men stole an unspecified sum from it. Nothing was taken from the four individuals, Ladeairous said.

A third similarly masked person may have been a lookout outside the store, he said.

The men fled on foot eastbound on Putnam Avenue.

10/31/07 - Rye and Port Chester burglaries may be related

RYE/PORT CHESTER - Police in Rye and Port Chester are working together to solve two burglaries and a car theft.

Rye police believe the theft of a 2001 Lexus from a Grace Church Street residential driveway between 6 p.m. Monday and 6:15 a.m. Tuesday is connected to the burglary of a Rye home a few doors away and a burglary on nearby Harbor Drive in Port Chester during the same time frame.

Lt. Joseph Verille said furniture in a 400 block Grace Church Street home was heavily ransacked, but nothing was stolen. He believes the disappointed robbers stole the Lexus and went into nearby Port Chester.

Thieves ripped a $2,500 plasma television from the wall of a Harbor Drive home after kicking in the side-door, Port Chester police Lt. James Ladeairous said. Nothing else was stolen, he said.

Ladeairous said the two departments are working together on these incidents.

10/31/07 - Port Chester Mayor Denniss Pilla Mentioned In CT Letter To The Editor



To the editor:I am very impressed that Frank Farricker, the Democratic candidate for first selectman, is discussing the issues that affect the entire town of Greenwich.

I am gratified that Mr. Farricker has taken positive steps to address the unique problems which Byram residents encounter daily. Terrible traffic and parking on the Mill Street Bridge and Mill Street affect merchants and residents alike.

Mr. Farricker has recently met with Mayor Dennis Pilla of Port Chester to discuss these issues. Mayor Pilla welcomed Mr. Farricker and explained that in the two years he has been mayor of Port Chester, not one elected Greenwich official has ever contacted him concerning Port Chester and Byram traffic. That is truly shocking.....
