Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. reports the arrest of a Patterson man for drug possession and driving with a suspended license.
On February 14, 2019, at approximately 10:50 am, Deputy Kevin Osika observed a vehicle commit traffic violations on Haviland Drive and Doansburg Road, in the Town of Patterson. Deputy Osika initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle. A check of the New York State Department of Motor Vehicle’s computer system revealed that the driver of the vehicle, Gideon Taub, age 28, of Patterson, had a driver’s license that was suspended in the State of New York. A subsequent investigation also revealed that Mr. Taub was in possession of the prescription pills Alprazolam and Amphetamine/Dextroamphetamine, for which he did not provide a prescription. Mr. Taub was placed under arrest and transported to the Putnam County Correctional Facility for processing. Mr. Taub was processed, issued an appearance ticket, and was released on $250.00 cash bail.
Mr. Taub is scheduled to appear in the Town of Patterson Justice Court, at a future date and time to answer to the charges of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Seventh Degree (Misdemeanor), Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of A Motor Vehicle in the 3rd Degree (Misdemeanor) and various traffic infractions.
