PELHAM, N.Y. The Pelham Police Department assisted the MTA police in arresting Charles Federice, who is accused of stealing a bike from the Pelham train station bike rack. A Pelham police officer responded after a person called to report that a man was acting suspiciously around the bike rack.
Federice, who was charged with misdemeanor larceny, was seen by Pelham police about 11:54 p.m. Saturday, March 24, walking a turquoise-colored bike eastbound on Pelhamwood Avenue from Fifth Avenue, police said. He was stopped just east of the Harmon Place intersection.
As the police officer approached Federice, he noticed red-handle bolt cutters protruding from Federices waistband. While the officer took away the bolt cutters, a Pelham sergeant, a Metropolitan Transportation Authority officer and an MTA sergeant arrived. The MTA sergeant told the Pelham police officer that they had been monitoring the suspect at the train station. He was arrested, and the complainant who had called the Pelham police was interviewed on the scene.
The case is being handled by the MTA.
