On Monday, Jan 10, at 2:17 p.m. three young males voluntarily came to police headquarters after being reported soliciting without a license in front of the CVS Pharmacy on Katonah Avenue, Katonah. 

Officers located the three on Katonah Avenue in front of the Village Market. They were recognized as the same youths previously reported soliciting for a basketball team who had been warned before about peddling without a license. 

The officers asked the teens if they knew anything about a larceny reported a week earlier at Tengda Asian Bistro, located in the same shopping center as CVS. They voluntarily came to the police station and were identified; two were minors. Police were unable to link them to the Tengda larceny and they were warned again about soliciting without a permit before being released. 

The two identified as juveniles were released to their parents. The third male left on his own.
