The man was standing on the northwest corner of West 261st Street and Broadway with a lit marijuana cigarette in plain view and two bags of marijuana. 

It marks the 12th arrest for the 27-year-old from Yonkers, who had previously been arrested for similar charges as well as assault.

Four males, a white 17-year-old, a white 15-year-old, a Hispanic 17-year-old, and a fourth whose age and ethnicity was not reported, were robbed on Independence Ave. and West 235th St. on June 24 at 2 p.m, according to authorities. 

The group was walking through Seton Park after visiting a friend when they were approached by a man who asked them to hand over their phones.

The woman was on the second floor while the burglary took place, but no alarms went off alerting her because she had left both windows in the basement unlocked.

The car that was struck then spiraled over and hit the rear of a third vehicle with four passengers, which was stopped at a red light at the same intersection.

Vehicles two and three went across 228th St. and collided with the front of a fourth vehicle with one passenger, which was stationed at the red light, waiting to travel eastbound. 

The driver of the first car was pronounced dead at 5:04 a.m. All other passengers were treated with minor injuries. 

The collision is under investigation by detectives.

I really wish journalists could get the law correct. You cannot rob a home or a car or a building. Only people get robbed. A burglary is not a robbery and vice versa.

A robbery is theft by force or threat. A burglary is entering a premises w/out permission and taking property. Stealing a car is grand larceny auto (GLA).

So number 4 above is incorrect as there is no such thing as a "house robbery".

It's clear the idiot who was arrested for weed is never going to learn his lesson.

I am trying to recall the last time I saw a police officer on routine patrol in or near Seton Park, and I am drawing a blank. A little help, 50th Precinct?

The 50th Precinct needs pressure placed on them to step up patrol in Riverdale from our local politicians- Dinowitz, Cohen, etc. This past Monday I saw them congregating in front of Starbucks on Johnson Avenue.

I can truthfully say I have no idea what they do for our area. To me, they appear absolutely useless. How hard would it be to speak with local police about protecting Riverdale with additional enforcement, especially when kids are out of school and more susceptible to get into trouble? If this is something they have done- how come we don't know about it? Community bulletin? Editorial in this paper? Dinowitz certainly has the time to write articles on "labeling sugary drinks" -- where are his letters to the community on broader issues?

We need to consider whether our elected leaders are doing anything to help our community prosper and also stay safe. If not, we need to send the message that they are no longer welcome to represent our interests.

hhudsonpky - I mentioned this before (and hate sounding like a broken record). When my husband used to live in the Kingsbridge area (near the VA hospital), my car was broken into. As the 2 officers from the 50th told me - if not for that area, they would have nothing to do.

My guess is that Riverdale/Fieldston is too quiet and there isn't much for them to do crime wise. Still, there must be a sector car assigned to that area each shift.

My area of the Bronx has a similar issue. Little crime but when you do need the police, they're always "busy". I cannot believe the one sector car assigned to the area is THAT busy 24/7.

I don't like to bash the police - they have a difficult job and of course the public doesn't make it easier. But appeasing to the areas that aren't causing the bulk of the problems would be nice every now and then.

I suppose count your blessings.
