Illegal Dumping Arrest

Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley Jr. reports the arrest of a Bronx man on littering charges for illegally dumping garbage in the Town of Southeast.

On July 29, 2019, Deputy Randel Hill was patrolling Barrett Road in the Town of Southeast when he happened upon a large quantity of trash and construction debris that had been dumped on the County owned property adjacent to interstate 84. After surveying the scene, Deputy Hill collected photographs of the scene and then dug through several bags looking for any identifying garbage that would help locate the owner. In one of the bags Deputy Hill located paperwork belonging to a Lake Carmel man.

Given the quantity and substance of the garbage, (roofing shingles, car tires, lawn mowers and household garbage) Deputy Hill contacted Environmental Conservation Officer (ECO) Kevin Wamsley.

The next day Deputy Hill and ECO Wamsley located the Lake Carmel man. After an investigation Deputy Hill and ECO Wamsley learned that the Lake Carmel man, who was a contractor, had paid an independent contractor to remove waste from a construction site in Yonkers. The independent contractor, 56 year old Antonio Ortiz-Zayas, of the Bronx, was contacted and directed to meet Deputy Hill and ECO Wamsley at the dump site.

Ortiz-Zayas, who, later at the dump site, related to Deputy Hill and ECO Wamsley that he thought Barrett Road was a free dumping site, was issued a Littering summons by Deputy Hill and an Unlawful Disposal Summons by ECO Wamsley, both returnable to the Town of Southeast Justice Court on August 27, 2019.

The garbage was picked up and removed by Ortiz-Zayas.

Keeping the Hudson River Safe

What a marvelous day for a boat ride! Deputies Bradley and Irwin certainly have a great assignment! Sheriff Langley came along too and checked out the latest gadgets such as the FLIR Thermal Imaging for locating persons in the dark. Many agencies work to make sure the River is safe for all including the @nyspolice who were also out on patrol. How lucky are we to live among such beauty as the mighty Hudson River? #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #marinepatrolunit #justice24 #bostonwhaler #nyspolice #hudsonriver #bearmountainbridge #newburghbeaconbridge

Sheriff's Cadets Gain Valuable Experience

alt_text

While most young people her age are seeking shelter from the heat this summer, Putnam County Sheriff’s Cadet Veronika Bilinski and many other cadets are pursuing their interest in the field of Law Enforcement. Veronika is a June 2019 graduate of the Cadet Police Training Academy and the training does not stop there. It is a continuous process. They attend a Cadet Police Academy in Massachusetts which includes firearm safety, vehicle and traffic stops, investigation techniques, arrest procedures and more. As part of the Sheriff’s Cadet Ride-along Program, Veronica is shown here receiving instruction from Deputy Sheriff Matthew Kraisky. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Cadet Program, started by late Sheriff Raynor Weizenecker, under the direction of Deputy Charles J. Moore, has been in existence for over fifty years. Many program participants have gone on to have successful careers in Law Enforcement on a Federal, State and Local level. The Sheriff’s Cadets of today are your Law Enforcement Officers of tomorrow. We here at the Sheriff’s Department are proud of the dedication, enthusiasm and professionalism demonstrated by these fine young men and women. We wish them continued success as they progress along a long difficult road to becoming a member of the greatest and most rewarding profession on Earth. #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #pcsocadets #putnamsfuture #LEOsoftomorrow @pcsocadets

K9 Char Beating the Heat

It’s the dog days of summer folks and no one is immune to it. Not even everyone’s favorite accelerant detecting dog K9 Char. He has found a way to beat the heat by accompanying his handler Sgt. Lombardo as he patrols Lake Mahopac. Char is setting the trend for canine water safety with his cool floaty vest and recommends his dog friends follow the trend for safety’s sake. Have fun out there! #k9friday #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #workingdog #policedog #lakemahopac #safetyfirst #sheriffk9
