1. Police said train operators found a 22-year-old woman underneath the lead car of the 1 Train at West 238th and Broadway, on the southbound line. Authorities added they were unaware how long the woman, whose body was discovered at 4:33 a.m. on Jan. 31, had lain there. She was pronounced dead on site.
The case is still open to detectives.
2. Drug and gun arrests
Following a tip from a parole officer, a 30-year-old woman and a 41-year-old man were apprehended at 9 a.m. on Jan. 31 for criminal possession of guns and drugs.
Upon looking in from the doorway at a 3419 Irwin Ave. residence, police spotted a duffel bag filled with marijuana. After searching the residence, officers uncovered seven semi-automatic firearms, including two revolvers. Police said they also found about seven kilograms of cocaine.
3. Dangerous DWI
Police said a 25-year-old was arrested at West 225th and Broadway just before sunrise on Monday for driving while intoxicated.
A witness called 911 and told police how the defendant had slammed his tan 2004 Mercury into one of the beams used to support the elevated subway tracks which run down Broadway.
The suspect was able to flee the vehicle, but was apprehended soon afterward. The night was no longer young.
4. Ethan Hunt, he ain’t
He came in through the skylight, police say.
A 59-year-old attempted to burgle the New Adventure Mini Market at 161 W. 231st St. at 5:45 a.m. on Jan. 30. He retrieved $440 from the store before being spotted by the 34-year-old brother of the business owner, who was attempting to unlock the business’ front gate.
The 34-year-old saw the burglar make for the same skylight he had entered through by placing a folding chair on top of a refrigerator. But the witness called his brother, who informed the police, and they apprehended the suspect behind the store in Albany Crescent as he tried to jump a fence.
5. Uneven trade
Police said a 29-year-old man walked into a bar at 9 p.m. on Jan. 30. When he returned to 5700 Arlington Ave. at 11 p.m., he discovered that his black 2013 Ducati motorcycle had vanished. In its place: a shovel.
Police speculated that the thief used the shovel to dig the Ducati out of the snow where it was embanked. Detectives will review video surveillance of the site to try to identify the perpetrator of the grand larceny auto.
