NY woman found with stolen snake

NEW HYDE PARK (AP) -- Authorities say a New York woman who crashed her car into a Long Island fire house was found to be in possession of marijuana -- and a stolen snake wrapped around her neck.

Nassau County police say Sarah Espinosa, of Albany, was driving west on Jericho Turnpike on Monday when she crossed the center median and struck a vehicle. They say she continued through the front door of the New Hyde Park fire house and collided with two fire trucks.

Fire personnel rushed to her aid and were surprised to find a small ball python around her neck.

Authorities say the snake had been stolen from a nearby pet store shortly before the accident.

Poll: Cuomo lead cut by 5 points

ALBANY (AP) -- New polling shows New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's lead over his GOP challenger shrank following news that his administration is being investigated for meddling with an anti-corruption commission.

The survey released Tuesday by Marist College gives Cuomo, a Democrat, 54 percent of the vote compared to 23 percent who back Republican Rob Astorino. A poll last month put Cuomo's lead at 59-24 percent.

The poll suggests that while some voters were swayed by allegations that Cuomo's top aide discouraged the commission from investigating groups linked to his administration, the episode hasn't significantly altered the race.

Flea infestation shuts courthouse

ALBION (AP) -- A western New York courthouse is closed for a second consecutive day because of an infestation of fleas.

New York state court officials tell The Daily News of Batavia that the Orleans County Courthouse in Albion was closed Monday and will remain closed Tuesday.

The courthouse includes the Orleans County state Supreme Court and county and Surrogate courts. Family Court matters have been shifted to the village hall in rural Albion, located 30 miles west of Rochester.

Court system officials say remediation work began Monday against a flea infestation was found throughout the courthouse. Officials say the courthouse should reopen Wednesday morning.
