A driver who did not use his turn signal did not appreciate being beeped at by a fellow motorist. Around 10 a.m. Monday, July 1, the driver got out of his vehicle and began yelling at the woman who had beeped at him. She drove away from the confrontation, but the man sped after her, she told police. The woman said she was nervous but did not wish to pursue further investigation.
On Monday, July 1, a South Salem woman told police that four Key Bank accounts had been opened in her name. The possible fraud was reported to the bank, which put a lock on her credit. The woman said she did not lose any money.
On Tuesday, July 2, an Old Church Road resident told police her neighbor’s mailbox had been knocked down and that mail was scattered all over the road. It turned out, however, that the mail was from seven different residences in the area.
The mail was delivered to its intended destinations. Homeowners were asked to take note of any missing items. Two items were reported missing: shorts (ordered on Amazon) valued at $15 and thyroid medication valued at $30.
The investigation is pending.

The Lewisboro Parks and Recreation Department had been contacted about removing the paint.
Around 9:30 p.m. Thursday, July 4, a South Salem resident called to complain about a neighborhood fireworks show, saying the noise was disturbing her husband, a veteran.

Police investigated a report of a suspicious person on Laurel Ridge Road in South Salem around 9 p.m. Wednesday, June 26.
The officer said that when she approached the vehicle and spoke with the driver, a 20-year-old Stamford, Conn. resident, she smelled marijuana. The officer asked the driver if she had anything illegal in her vehicle, and the driver reportedly said, “No, you can check.” While searching the vehicle, the officer allegedly found two glassine envelopes with heroin and a glass jar with marijuana.
The Stamford woman was issued an appearance ticket for July 1. She was released on $200 bail.
A confusion over a vanity plate resulted in a South Salem man being charged about $1,500.
