Bronx News Roundup, Dec. 28

Yesterday, the Bronx Zoo hosted an ice carving contest.

A Bronx dog who disappeared two years ago has been reunited with his owners. "Rusty," a terrier, somehow made his way to Georgia where a vet found an identification chip under his skin.

Police and prosecutors have closed a loophole which allowed drunk drivers to refuse a breath test in the hopes to sobering up before a blood test could be taken. The change in procedure comes after a drunken cop knocked down and killed an elderly women in Kingsbridge in October. Det. Kevin Spellman declined a breath test, and it took more than five hours to obtain a court order to draw his blood.

More than 500 shopping carts have been stolen from Toys 'R' Us in the new Gateway Center Mall.

Crime is down again this year, in the Bronx and across the city. But some incidents (how many we wonder?) never become a statistic.

Century-old "beer caves" have been found in Melrose. More here.

The "Four Amigos" - State Senators Diaz, Monserrate, Espada, and Kruger - are meeting today to discuss their agenda for 2010. For now, the focus seems to be less on creating jobs, combating poverty, etc., than on saving one of their own.
