A Putnam County Sheriff's car was smashed up in the line of duty July 13.
It all started in Dover, NY, when EMTs took over a medical emergency from a Good Samaritan—who looked around and realized his car had been stolen while he was committing an act of charity.
Police put out a description of the car and two women suspects—and a Dutchess County Sheriff's Deputy spotted it on Route 22.
A pursuit ensued.
The women got as far as Southeast—where they were stopped on I-684 after they crashed into a police car.
They were arrested after a brief struggle, police said.
Kendra Hinds, 26 years old, of Waterbury, CT, and Elizabeth Martinez, 25 years old, also of Waterbury, were charged with Grand Larceny 3rd Degree, a Class D Felony, two counts of Reckless Endangerment 1st Degree, a Class D Felony, and Resisting Arrest, a Class A Misdemeanor. Hinds was additionally charged with Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs, a Misdemeanor, and Unlawful Possession of Marihuana, a Violation.
Hinds and Martinez were arraigned before the Town of Dover Justice Court and sent to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $500,000 cash bail.
