Franklinville man arrested for child endangerment
On August 28, 2019, SP Machias Troopers arrested Dale E. Forrester, 35, of Franklinville, NY for two counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
Following a successful search and rescue operation for two children who had gone missing after kayaking on the Olean Creek in the town of Hinsdale, Troopers determined Forrester had allowed the children to kayak at dusk without personal flotation devices, cell phones, or flashlights.
Forrester was arrested and issued appearance tickets for Hinsdale Town Court where he is due to appear in September.
