12/02/07 - Port Chester Police Officer Walter Alcivar says he informed the Westchester DA Fred Green about the California warrant on the sex offender

el Palacio de Los Mariscos in Port Chester.

A Week Ago Port Chester Roundup Was The Only Media Outlet Asking The Big Question......

11/27/07 - Communication Breakdown - There was a detainer warrant. Should Port Chester police have arrested the sex offender and put him in jail?

The Hopelessly Biased Rag Known As The Westmore News Failed To Ask The Question.

Lazy Liz Sadler, Port Chester Reporter For The Journal News Failed To Ask The Question.

But Shawn Cohen, the North Salem reporter for the Journal News did ask questions about why the Port Chester Police Department did not arrest and hold a sex offender on a detainer warrant.

Now There Has Been An Investigation.

And Here Are Some Of The Answers

Missed chances at deporting North Salem sex offender

A convicted sex offender remains on the run after various law enforcement agencies failed to act on a felony arrest warrant ...

..."At the time we were called regarding the bail application, we were not aware that there was any kind of a warrant," said Lucian Chalfen, spokesman for the Westchester District Attorney's Office.

A Port Chester police officer, however, said he informed a county prosecutor about the California warrant. A state police investigator, meanwhile, said he told the District Attorney's Office about the federal detainer, issued so Broudwiack could be held for deportation proceedings....

...when Port Chester police stopped him in September for a faulty brake light, his criminal history did surface.

Officer Walter Alcivar ran a computer check and learned that Broudwiack's driving privileges had been revoked twice. He also found out about the California warrant, which revealed the sex-crime conviction.

Alcivar said he called police in California to check on the case and was told that they weren't willing to extradite him. The warrant, in fact, notes "no extradition outside California."

The Sheriff's Department claimed it never got the call, though it wishes it had.

"If we had known the guy was in custody," spokesman Steve Whitmore said, "the Sheriff's Department would have gone back to the district attorney and asked them to amend the warrant so we could have retrieved him."

Regardless, the Port Chester officer followed up by researching New York's sex-abuse registry. He found out that Broudwiack had never registered as a sex offender in New York, though he was required to do that.

Alcivar said he called the Westchester District Attorney's Office and asked Assistant District Attorney Fred Green whether he could arrest Broudwiack on the misdemeanor offense of failing to register. Alcivar said he also mentioned the California warrant.

state police in Somers because they have jurisdiction in North Salem, where Broudwiack was living at the time.

So Port Chester charged him with aggravated unlicensed operation, a misdemeanor. He posted $200 bail and left.....

Would some one please call and call (914) 939-6864 and tell Jananne Abel, at the Westmore Snooze and tell her about the sex offender that was working at in Port Chester.

Obviously the Westmore Snooze Knows Nothing About The Communication Break Down That Prevented A Sex Offender From Being Arrestted And Detained In Port Chester.
