RAMAPO, N.Y. – A 12-year-old boy who had not shown up at his baby sitter’s house after school as usual caused a minor scare in Ramapo on Wednesday, police said.

Police, after receiving a call about the missing boy, conducted a search and made numerous phone calls before finding out that he had not gotten on the school bus as usual but had taken a different bus to an after-school program and a second one home later.

Police checked that the boy was safe and sound and notified the principal of his school about the incident.

Police on Wednesday also arrested a 47-year-old Garnerville woman and charged her with petty larceny and criminal possession of stolen property after she was accused of stealing $130 worth of clothing from a local department store.

The woman is to appear in the Airmont Justice Court in April to answer the charges.

Police also had to rescue a driver who had gotten stuck after she pulled her Toyota too far into a parking spot at Clark Recreation Center.

Police were able to free the Toyota, saving the errant motorist from towing fees.

Police also responded to a call about a distraught woman at a local gas station.

The woman told police that she had gotten into an argument and a physical fight with a former friend, who, she claimed, had stolen her dog.

Police were investigating, but, as of Thursday afternoon, no charges had been filed.

A 58-year-old Airmont cabbie was arrested Wednesday and charged with driving a taxi with switched license plates and a suspended registration, police said.

The cabbie’s license had been revoked for driving while intoxicated and he had 19 active suspensions, police said.

He also did not have a required ignition interlock device, police said.

The unidentified man was held overnight for arraignment, they said.
