Police chief addresses racism and harassment concerns in neighbor dispute
The Shawangunk Police Department is addressing racism and harassment concerns surrounding an ongoing neighbor dispute.
Bi-racial couple Tina Foy and Raldon Scott tell News12 they've called police dozens of times with harassment complaints against their neighbor after she allegedly called them racial slurs caught on video back in March.
Since then, they say she's damaged their car and even threw a dead rat at them.
Police say the incidents remain under investigation, but that so far, there's no basis for an arrest. "The back story and the continuation for the story and all the circumstances involved, the totality of it, is really what we have to look at. We can't make judgements based on the one little snippet," says Shawangunk Police Chief Gerald Marlatt.
Foy says despite repeated complaints the issues with her neighbor continue. She plans on next reaching out to the NAACP for help.
