HARRISON, N.Y. — The Harrison Daily Voice will head into the New Year by counting down, in no particular order, the Top 10 stories from 2012.
As Harrison police sought to arrest three men in a Sept. 3 burglary in town, they shot one of the suspects Oct. 17. The three men were also suspected in other burglaries and robberies throughout Westchester County and Connecticut, police said.
Daniel DiBiase, 55, of Poughquag, the getaway driver, was shot, police said. He was joined in the alleged crime spree by Carmine Stanzione (aka Paul DiBiase), 57, of Poughquag, and Jason Foskey, 34, of Stormville, police said.
The three men had been under surveillance since $500,000 worth of jewelry was taken from a Harrison home Sept. 3, according to a Harrison Police Department report.
The men were exiting I-287 east onto Westchester Avenue in Harrison at 6:40 p.m. Oct. 17 when police said they made a planned stop. Police did not say when and why two shots were fired during the arrest. One shot hit DiBiase.
They were charged with second-degree attempted burglary and second-degree burglary, both felonies, Harrison police said. The three were additionally charged with “firearms charges and robbery offenses that were committed in homes in New York and Connecticut,” said an Oct. 23 statement from the FBI. All face a maximum penalty of life in prison.
