Ray & Gordo
#tbt The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office is no stranger to great old fashioned police work. Such was the case here in March of 1981, when Deputy Sheriff Raymond V. Trotta and Investigator Gordon T. Allen, investigated a case of criminal mischief to headstones in the Raymond Hill Cemetery in Carmel. In this case, 152 headstones were damaged and the investigation resulted in the arrest of two 16 year old youths. What Trotta and Allen may not have been aware of at the time is, that the headstone that appears in this photo, belongs to the former Sheriff of Putnam County, Charles T. Brewster. Sheriff Brewster served Putnam County from 1856 to 1858. Did their investigation get a little help from above? Maybe… #pcso #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory
