A constituent within the City of Greenburgh expressed considerations about an obelisk-formed monument to Accomplice veterans within the privately-operated Mount Hope Cemetery.

Greenburgh police conducted the investigation in conjunction with the Westchester County District Attorney’s office. 

Goetze was charged with aggravated harassment as a hate crime, a felony. 

“While we respect everyone’s right to free speech, this was clearly a case where that line was crossed,” Police Chief Chris McNerney said in a statement. “We want to send a message that such hate filled threats will be fully investigated and those responsible will be brought to justice.”

Goetze was arraigned in town court and remanded to Westchester County Jail and held on $25,000 bond. He’s scheduled to be reappear in court on Friday.
