Cortlandt, New York – On December 15, 2020, the New York State Police from the Cortlandt barracks arrested Derek Sloane, age 55, of Poughkeepsie while assisting the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office with a stolen vehicle complaint for Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the 3rd degree, a class D felony, and Aggravated Unlicensed Operation in the 2nd degree, an unclassified misdemeanor.

At approximately 3:40 p.m., Troopers in Westchester cross monitoring Putnam County 911 radio transmissions overheard the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office investigating a complaint of a stolen 2017 Chevrolet Silverado.  Troopers patrolled to likely locations the suspect may have fled to and subsequently located him in on Route 9 and Highland Avenue.  The suspect later identified as, Derek Sloane, was taken into custody without further incident.

Sloane was issued an appearance ticket returnable to the town of Cortlandt Court on January 21, 2021 at 9:00 a.m., and then turned over to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department for further investigation.
