Did You Lose A Black Cell Phone Today At Roosevelt Island Subway Station -Found By A Good Samaritan And Turned In To NYPD

Roosevelt Island Good Samaritan Sherie Helstien found a lost cell phone today and turned it in to the NYPD. If you lost the cell phone, contact the Roosevelt Island Public Safety Department (550 Main Street, 212 832-4545) and they should be able to help you get it returned. According to Ms. Helstien:

I found a black cellphone in the RI subway station left on a bench as I was heading off the Island (going to Manhattan). I handed it to a NY police officer, whose name I believe is Officer Belavsky. (not sure if he was here from Qns or Manhattan preceinct). I think he said he'd have to turn it in with "bypass"(?). I asked him if he could turn it into our PS office since it was probably a resident here who'd lost first he said "no" b/c it was now in the hands of the NYPD, but then he said he'd try to, but that they probably wouldn't accept I'm not sure where it has ended up. After I handed it to the PO he could not give it back to me, (once in their hands, its not in my control...)...

... I hope this helps the owner retrieve his phone...
