Strykersville woman arrested for DWI at over twice the limit in Machias

On May 22, 2021, SP Machias Troopers arrested Melanie Toland, 43, of Strykersville, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.

During a traffic stop on Hazelmere Avenue in the town of Machias, Troopers observed Toland exhibiting obvious signs of intoxication and determined she had been operating a motor vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. She failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Toland was then arrested and transported to SP Machias, where a chemical breath test revealed her to have a 0.17% BAC.

Toland was released with appearance tickets for Machias Town Court, where she is due to appear in June.
