SCARSDALE, N.Y. - Police in Scarsdale helped reconcile a domestic dispute recently, after an au pair was busted attempting to take some trinkets from her employer’s family.
On Wednesday, April 26, police were dispatched to a Lincoln Road home, where the homeowner stated that she was having a difficult time with her au pair, who had recently traveled to the Netherlands, but was scheduled to return stateside the following weekend.
According to police, before the au pair left, the homeowner requested she clean out her room because it was getting painted. When the painters arrived, the belongings from the au pair’s bedroom were placed in the living room, at which point the homeowner said she noticed some of the items were in the unclosed suitcase.
Police said the homeowner claimed that some of her shirts were visible, and upon further investigation, she found more of her clothing, some of her son’s electronic devices and various miscellaneous household options.
The homeowner told police she did not want to press formal charges, but has taken steps to terminate her employment, having already been in contact with her agency, which is based out of San Fransisco. Police said that formal notice was to be given to the au pair that she was forbidden from the Lincoln Road property.
