PELHAM, N.Y. A woman called the Pelham Police Department Wednesday around 6:12 p.m. saying that her son was insistently bothering her with phone calls to ask for money.
Her son, who lives on Second Avenue in Pelham, told officers that her son was released from jail last week and he had left six messages on her home phone answering machine in addition to a message on her cellphone. She said that in these messages, he said he was out of jail and needed money.
While a police officer was at the womans home listening to the messages, the son called again asking for money. He said he was at the Getty gas station in Mount Vernon.
