Pelham Police Track Down Missing Girlfriend

PELHAM, N.Y. – A Pelham man filed a missing person report last week after his girlfriend did not respond to text messages following an argument. The man told Pelham Police on Thursday that his girlfriend had indicated suicidal intentions by sending a text message that read "You killed me."

He also claimed that his girlfriend was on antidepressant medication.

Police tracked down the woman, who stated that she fell asleep and had not seen the text messages. She told them she was not suicidal and that she would be spending the night at a friend's house.

The following items were also reported in the police blotter last week:

-- A North Bleeker Street resident reported last week that his Honda motorcycle was missing. Johnson said the 2007 bike was parked in his parking spot across the street and was locked and secured. The motorcycle was last seen at 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday and was reported missing the next morning.

-- A Pelham woman reported Thursday that a Peltown taxicab was being operated recklessly. She said when she was making a left turn from Colonial Avenue to Corlies Avenue, the driver cut her off, forcing her to slam on her brakes. The dispatch at Peltown stated the woman had stopped at a “yield-to-pedestrian” sign for no reason. When the taxi driver honked, she did not move.

-- The Pelham Fire Department responded to an activated carbon monoxide alarm on Elderwood Avenue on Wednesday. Fire officials determined the location to be clear after inspection.

-- Police stopped a car on Wednesday afternoon because of a suspended license plate. The plate was suspended because of a lapse in insurance. The driver, Jesus Ruiz, was using a Mexican driver's license.  The owner of the vehicle, Valentino Lopez, was in the passenger seat and stated that he asked his friend to drive because he was not feeling well. The vehicle was impounded. Ruiz was issued a summons for operating a vehicle without a driver’s license. Lopez was issued two summonses for operating a vehicle without both a license and insurance.

-- A suspicious person was reported on Young Avenue and Harmon Avenue on Tuesday night. The Pelham Police determined the person in question to be a Con Edison worker.
