RAMAPO, N.Y. – A carelessly tossed paper bag has landed one litterbug suspect in the arms of the law in Ramapo, police said.

An officer on patrol late Wednesday night saw a man on Dunnigan Drive in Suffern chuck the bag and stroll away, police said.

They added that when the unnamed 25-year-old Spring Valley man was approached by the officer, he laughed and asked: “Really?”

A computer check showed that he was wanted by Spring Valley police.

Ramapo police did not say what the warrant was for.

The man was charged with littering and turned over to Spring Valley authorities, police said.

Also Wednesday, police handled 126 calls, including: 12 alarm activations, one fire, five medical emergencies, and four arrests for warrants, vehicle and traffic, and local law-littering.

They investigated a total of 10 motor vehicle accidents at the following locations: Kaser (two), Hillcrest (two), Monsey (two), Northeast Ramapo (two), Wesley Hills, and Airmont.
