ANOTHER CVP SCOOP: It’s “very possible” that federal Homeland Security agents will joint the search for those responsible for sabotaging New York, Susquehanna & Western Railroad freight train gates yesterday afternoon in Rochelle Park, a law enforcement source with direct knowledge of the incident told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

“The wires were cut between 2 and 3 p.m., knocking out the circuit and keeping the gates down,” the source said. “That’s sabotage.

Considerable tie-ups in Rochelle Park and surrounding towns followed.
