Man Arrested for Second DWAI in Two Weeks

Written By Editor on 12/29/20 | 12/29/20

Sheriff Craig S. DuMond announced that a South Kortright man is facing a driving while ability impaired by drug charge for a second time in two weeks after driving to the Delaware County Public Safety Building early Wednesday morning, December 16, 2020, while impaired by drugs.

At approximately 4:20 a.m. on Wednesday morning, Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the Delaware County Public Safety Building to investigate a vehicle driving through the parking lot in a suspicious manner.  Prior to the arrival of Deputies, the vehicle drove over a concrete parking block and became lodged in front of the main entrance door of the Public Safety Building.  The driver was immediately confronted and identified by Delaware County Correction Officers and was detained until the arrival of Deputies.

Following an investigation by Deputies and Village of Delhi Police Department’s Drug Recognition Expert, it was determined that the driver, 44-year-old Joseph A. B. Garone, of South Kortright, was operating the vehicle while his ability was impaired by drugs.  Garone was subsequently arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle while ability impaired by drugs.

On December 4, 2020, Deputies arrested and charged Garone with driving while ability impaired by drugs following their investigation of a two car motor vehicle accident on Spring Valley Road in the Town of Delhi. 

Due to New York State Bail Reform legislation, Garone was released again Wednesday morning after being issued a traffic summons directing him to appear in the Town of Delhi Court on a later date to answer the new charge.  

Garone’s vehicle was towed from the scene at the conclusion of the investigation.
