Long Island Teen Crashes Car Into Neighbor’s Home, Police Won’t Charge Him

WANTAGH, NY - DECEMBER 08: A Long Island police officer sits at the entrance to a road where a search is continuing for human remains along a stretch of road that has already led to the discovery of 10 bodies on December 8, 2011 in Wantagh, New York. Working from the theory of a single serial killer, police now believe they are closing in on the remains of a missing New Jersey prostitute whose disappearance led to the start of the search.

Vincent Grande of Massapequa, New York, is outraged that police are refusing to arrest or even charge Robert Carracher, his 15-year-old neighbor, after he stole his dad's car and crashed it into Grande's home. Authorities say it was an accident, plus Carracher only hit a fence and an air conditioner, but Grande has his reasons for being hard on the lad. “When I used my phone to take pictures, the kid turned away and his dad gave me the finger," he explains.
