John Keenan, the retired NYPD chief of detectives who took part in the arrest of “Son of Sam” serial killer David Berkowitz in the summer of 1977, died Thursday at the age of 99.

A veteran of World War II who took part in the D-Day invasion and the Battle of the Bulge, Keenan joined the NYPD in 1941 and then joined the military, said an NYPD spokeswoman, adding that he retired in 1978.

Keenan often recounted the famous confession he got from the David Berkowitz — a serial killer who terrorized New York City during the summer of 1977 in a reign of terror that left six dead and another seven wounded.

Keenan served as the detective bureau’s top cop between March of 1977 to January of 1978.

Four people who owned or worked at pharmacies in New Jersey and New York City bribed doctors to send them prescriptions and received millions of dollars in reimbursements for medications they did not send to patients or even have in stock, an indictment released Monday alleged.

The $99 million scam began in 2009, the U.S. attorney’s office asserted.

The indictment charged Alex Fleyshmakher, 33, of Morganville, New Jersey; Ruben Sevumyants, 36, of Marlboro, New Jersey; and Samuel Khaimov, 47, and Yana Shtindler, 44, both of Glen Head, New York.

The defendants are charged with crimes including healthcare fraud, wire fraud and conspiracy. Wire fraud is punishable by a maximum 20-year prison sentence, and healthcare fraud carries a 10-year maximum sentence.

Sevumyants, Khaimov and Shtindler were previously charged. Fleyshmakher was charged and arrested Monday and scheduled for a court appearance later in the day.

Lawrence Lustberg, an attorney for Shtindler, said his client “is confident that when the entire story is told to a fair and impartial jury, she will be totally exonerated of any wrongdoing, as she has done nothing…

You should know that this Saturday, September 14th at 1300 hours, we will be celebrating a street renaming activity in memory of the late Rev. Mario De Jesus.

Rev. De Jesus was a community minister, advocate, and outspoken leader for senior citizens, and the community as a whole.

As the City Councilmember representing the area of Soundview, I was able to obtain approval from the City Council to rename the corner of Randall Avenue & Soundview Avenue.

The street renaming ceremony will begin at 1300 hours and will be a family festival filled with music, food, games, and entertainment for children throughout the day.

All are welcome and encouraged to come as we pay tribute to Rev. Mario De Jesus and celebrate his life. Elected officials, community leaders, family & friends of Rev. De Jesus and anyone else who would like to come together to remember him.

I am Councilmember Rev. Rubén Díaz, Sr. and this is what you should know.

BYD Motors Inc. announced Milea Truck Sales and Leasing as its fully authorized truck dealer to support the New York metropolitan area.

Milea Truck, headquartered in Bronx, will offer BYD’s full line of electric vehicles, including in Class 6 and Class 8 configurations, refuse collection trucks, tandem axle day cabs, yard tractors and what it claimed is the world’s first all-electric refrigerated box trucks.

“Milea Truck Sales is proud to be the pre-eminent leader for clean energy trucks in the tri-state area. We continue to partner with New York City departments, not-for-profits and local businesses to help drive the transition to clean energy trucks,” Milea Truck Sales President Barry Milea said.

We are very mindful of the fact that the Bronx and the surrounding boroughs have some of the highest asthma rates in the country,” he added. “We feel we have a social responsibility to do everything in our power to help fight this by putting more low-emission vehicles on the road, and BYD will be a valuable partner to help us achieve that mission.”

Sales, service, parts and technical support will be provided from Milea Truck’s three facilities in New York City as well as planned sites in Westchester County and Long Island.

BYD’s North American operations are based in Los Angeles. It is a unit of China-based BYD Co.

On Monday, September 16, 2019, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. took part in a ribbon-cutting for the newly renovated pool at Bronx Community College.

The new facility will include open swim hours for our students, faculty, and staff at Bronx Community College. The refurbished swimming pool is 38 x 75 feet and ranges from four to 11 feet in depth. The venue includes stadium seating overlooking the pool area and access to the lower level locker rooms through the pool deck and lobby.

The Borough President’s office contributed $675,000 of the $4,774,000 total project cost.

“The upgraded pool looks beautiful and it will be a valuable resource to students for years to come. Every year, I provide Bronx CUNY schools with funding from my capital budget because we need to make sure our public school students have everything they need to succeed in their educational journey,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
