NORTH SALEM, N.Y. – A parent driving her 13-year-old to North Salem Middle School on Friday morning had car trouble on Hardscrabble Road and called for road service.

As she waited, Officer Ralph Argiento arrived and, at the mother’s request, drove the youngster to school. After dropping her off, Argiento returned to Hardscrabble Road and drove the mother home, where she waited for the tow truck.

The North Salem Police also reported the following incidents:

  • Officer Michael Castellano came to the rescue during Thursday morning’s rush hour when a swan wandering around the Titicus Road-Interstate 684 overpass obstructed traffic. The officer halted traffic and encouraged the swan to fly away.
  • A Croton Falls resident detected an unusual odor emanating from her neighbor’s property March 13. Officer Dennis Cullen discovered the source of the odor was a wood-burning stove with an incorrectly installed vent pipe. The pipe was vented through a garage wall below the roof line and was not capped to arrest sparks and smoke. Cullen advised the neighbor to extinguish the fire and refrain from using the stove until the exhaust pipe was checked by an expert.
  • A Hawley Road resident reported a suspicious man, walking up and down the road Friday evening. Sgt. Andrew Brown interviewed the man, a Connecticut resident who had run out of gas. Brown reassured the complainant, the driver got gas and the situation was resolved.
