This is not Mt. Kisco. This is New Castle/Chappaqua. Why does the article or the New Castle Police Department say it is a Mt. Kisco man or that it happened in Mt. Kisco when neither is true? It is only Mt. Kisco postal. That's it.

You are right. The story has been updated.

this is a very dangerous, highly addictive drug! there are 2 things it makes the headlines for! its explosive nature when being prepared in that it is highly flammable and unstable and tends to blow up and when ingested, meth causes violent behavior and intense paranoia with visual and auditory hallucinations !
not a drug we need in our community !!
