Here are some stories that make the headlines in the Hudson Valley.

A woman from Mount Vernon has been indicted for suspected possession of fraudulent COVID-19 vaccination cards. Diana Finlay has been charged with five counts of criminal possession of a second degree counterfeit instrument. After being pulled over and arrested in Harrison for driving with an allegedly forged New Jersey temporary registration license tag, authorities say a total of 21 fake COVID-19 vaccination cards have been recovered. Finlay is scheduled to appear again in Harrison Town court on December 7.

A GoFundMe is now circulating for the Mount Vernon woman found dead. Alexandra Castano’s body was discovered last Tuesday at her Summit Street home. Authorities say the initial autopsy showed no signs of trauma or assault. The family say they are still waiting for a second autopsy before planning a funeral.

The search is underway for a man accused of physically assaulting employees at an Apple Store in Manhattan. The suspect refused to wear a mask and slapped the guard when confronted. He then returned to the store, punched an employee and stabbed the guard with a knife. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact NYPD.
