On January 21, 2021, SP Clarence Troopers arrested Ronnie S. Dupree, III, 23, of Buffalo, NY, for False Personation and Unlawful Fleeing a Police Officer in a Motor Vehicle in the Third Degree.
Troopers attempted to stop Dupree on ST-33 for having excessive window tint on the 2014 Ford he was operating. Dupree failed to stop and accelerated away, reaching a top speed of 96 mph in a 55 mph zone. Dupree stopped on Union Road and fled into an associate’s residence. He was observed exiting a rear window where he was taken into custody.
Dupree provided a false name to police, who later confirmed his real identity. Dupree was issued appearance tickets for the town of Cheektowaga court. Dupree also had an active violation of probation warrant and was transported to the Erie County Holding Center pending arraignment. Cheektowaga Police assisted in the arrest.
