A pair of Orange County residents were among nearly a dozen busted for DWI as State and local law enforcement agencies continue their concerted efforts to curtail intoxicated drivers in the Hudson Valley as part of a national crackdown.
As part of the STOP-DWI crackdown, New York State Police troopers busted several motorists for driving while intoxicated last week as they attempt to stop motorists from drinking and driving in the area.
Local residents charged were:
- State police troopers from the Middletown barracks stopped Middletown resident Margarita Santiago, 50, on Route 211 in Wallkill for a vehicle and traffic law violation. During the stop, it was determined that Santiago was under the influence of alcohol and she was arrested.
- State police troopers from the Montgomery barracks stopped Newburgh resident Victor Nazario, 33, on Route 32 in Newburgh for a vehicle and traffic law violation. During the stop, it was determined that Nazario was under the influence of alcohol and he was arrested.
Seven other DWI arrests were made by state police troopers overnight. Each of the arrested parties was charged with driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor. Each has since been released to a sober third-party and are due back in court later this year to answer the charges.
