An Armonk man was ticketed Monday for doing construction work on an Abendroth Avenue home without a permit after police had already warned him to put a halt to the work.
On Oct. 7, police Lt. Roy Monroe spotted 47-year-old German Granados doing construction work on the 18 Abendroth Ave. home. Granados had blocked off parts of Abendroth and Willett avenues with construction equipment, including scaffolding, barriers, cones, a chop saw, an air compressor and other equipment, Capt. John Telesca said.
Monroe gave Granados a verbal warning and told him to cease work at the site until he obtained the proper permits.
Granados agreed, but on Monday Monroe passed the area again and saw Granados working. Granados admitted he didn't have a permit, but told police "he figured no one would catch him because it was a holiday," Telesca said. Monday was Columbus Day, a federal holiday.
Granados was issued an appearance ticket for violating a village ordinance. Messages were left with Port Chester Mayor Dennis Pilla and Assistant Village Manager Christopher Steers regarding potential action from the village's Department of Code Enforcement.
Granados is scheduled to return to Port Chester village court on Friday.
