Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley Jr. reports the arrest of a Newburgh man for driving with a suspended license and driving without a court ordered ignition interlock device.
On April 4, 2019, at approximately 7:08 p.m., Deputy Sheriff Anthony Tolve observed a traffic violation on State Route 9, in the Town of Philipstown.
