Tarrytown Police Make Drug, Stolen Property Arrest

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – Tarrytown police arrested a man on drug and stolen property charges after a traffic check revealed his license was revoked for a DWI-related offense.

Richard S. Simmons, 38, has been charged with two counts of fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a misdemeanor, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor, and criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument, a misdemeanor.

Simmons was driving on Cortlandt Street around 8:30 a.m. on April 19 when police stopped his car. Police say a check of the license plates showed they had been stolen from a Putnam County train station.

Simmons was arraigned on $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond.
