Police: Yorktown Driver Chase From Taconic into Putnam County

At about 1:44 p.m. June 9, state troopers saw a Toyota Camry traveling at a high rate of speed on the Taconic State Parkway near East Fishkill.

As police pursued with activated emergency lights and sirens, the driver left the parkway and started traveling on State Route 52—accelerating to evade being stopped, heading into Kent onto Barrett Hill Road.

Patrols searched the area and located the Camry on Horse Pound Road.  The driver ran away and police chased him.  They also found a passenger, near the car.

Police investigated and learned who had been operating the Camry—a 26-year-old Yorktown man.  He was located on June 10 and taken into custody. 
He faces charges of Unlawful Fleeing a Police Officer in a Motor Vehicle 3rd Degree, a Class A Misdemeanor, Aggravated Unlicensed Operation 3rd Degree, a Misdemeanor, and Reckless Driving, a Misdemeanor.

He was arraigned before the Town of Carmel Court and sent to Putnam County Jail. Bail was set at $2,500 cash.  He is due to return to Kent Justice Court June 24.

The State Police were assisted by the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, Kent Police Department, and Yorktown Police Department.
