Hello #flashbackfriday! Circa 1980’s
Sergeant Anthony Edwards preparing to saddle his 1979 Plymouth Volare Pursuit package patrol unit. Sergeant Edwards served the people of Putnam County with pride and dedication and brought not only the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department to the forefront of technology but changed police reporting national by implementing the use of computers during their infancy for police reports. Anthony Edwards would to this day be a tremendous asset not only to the Sheriff’s Department but to our community due to his passion and knowledge in the communications and reporting systems of emergency services. #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #putnamhistoryny #plymouthvolare #policecar #vintagecar

STOP-DWI Crackdown Start on March 16

STOP-DWI

Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr., Town of Carmel Police Department Chief Anthony Hoffmann and Kent Police Department Chief Kevin Owens announced today that law enforcement agencies in Putnam County will participate in a special enforcement effort to crackdown on impaired driving.

The statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown efforts start on March 16, 2021 and will end on March 21, 2021. St. Patrick’s Day weekend is a notoriously deadly period for impaired driving due to the number of celebrations and drivers on the road. New York State Police, County Sheriffs and municipal law enforcement agencies across the state will be out in force in this across-the-board effort to reduce the number of alcohol related injuries and deaths.

The STOP-DWI St. Patrick’s Day Crackdown is one of many statewide enforcement initiatives promoted by the STOP-DWI NY and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee. This partnership has allowed local programs to significantly increase their enforcement and public awareness efforts. The Statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown Campaign also targets Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day Weekend, Halloween, the national Holiday Season in December.

Highly visible, highly publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI Crackdown Campaign aim to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving.

While STOP-DWI efforts across New York have made great strides in reducing the numbers of alcohol and drug related fatalities, still too many lives are being lost because of crashes caused by drunk or impaired drivers. You can do your part to become part of the solution by downloading our FREE mobile app “Have a Plan” at www.stopdwi.org/mobileapp and may the luck of the Irish be with you!

Arrest

On March 4, 2021, at approximately 8:45 a.m., Deputy Kevin Radovich responded to a call of a head-on car accident, involving injuries, in the area of 3504 Route 9 in the Town of Philipstown. Upon arriving at the scene, Deputy Radovich observed two cars in the roadway. Fire Department vehicles were also on the scene and EMTs were attending to the 37-year-old female driver of a 2020 Jeep. Deputy Radovich approached the driver of the other vehicle, 20-year-old Elvis Sangurima of Peekskill, and began his investigation.

The investigation revealed that Sangurima was traveling Northbound on Route 9 in a 2011 Honda Pilot when his vehicle crossed the double yellow line and struck the Jeep, that was traveling southbound on Route 9, head-on. The female driver of the Jeep had a bloody nose on the scene and was transferred to a local hospital. The extent of her injuries is unknown.

Sangurima, who was complaining of leg pain, was also removed to a nearby hospital. He had no visible injuries on the scene. There were no other occupants of either vehicle.

After further investigation, Deputy Roadovich, a certified Drug Recognition Expert, arrested Sangurima and charged him with Operating a Motor Vehicle while Impaired by Drugs, a Misdemeanor, Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 7th Degree, a Misdemeanor, Unlawful Possession of Marihuana, a Violation, Driving without a License and various traffic infractions. He was issued an Appearance Ticket to appear in the Town of Philipstown Justice Court on a later date. An alleged marihuana cigarette, a metal marihuana grinder, and 4 THC vape cartridges containing alleged concentrated cannabis were recovered in the Honda Pilot.

Besides the PCSO, other agencies responding to this incident are the North Highlands Fire Department, Philipstown Volunteer Ambulance, Garrison Volunteer Ambulance, and the New York State Police.
