On January 7, 2020, State Police in Clifton Park arrested 31-year-old Travis C Maderic of Schenectady, for Criminal Mischief 2nd degree (D felony), Reckless Endangerment 2nd degree (A misdemeanor), and Fleeing an Officer in a Motor Vehicle 3rd degree (A misdemeanor).

State Police arrested a Schenectady man after assisting with the search for a possible armed robbery suspect in the Town of Halfmoon on Thursday. Shortly before 2:00p.m.  State Police were advised of the description of a vehicle that had been involved in a possible armed robbery at the Walmart on State Route 9 in Halfmoon. A Trooper who was patrolling the area observed the vehicle on Grooms Road and attempted to initiate a traffic stop. When the Trooper exited their patrol car to approach the driver, later identified as Travis Maderic, Maderic took off and a vehicle pursuit was initiated.

Troopers pursued Maderic to the City of Schenectady where he rammed a patrol car head-on after becoming trapped on a dead end street. The Trooper was not injured in the collision. Maderic continued to flee, but was taken into custody a short time later.

Maderic was turned over to the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office on charges related to the initial incident. He is being held on bail in Saratoga County Jail.
