Vehicle Break-in Suspect Charged

On Oct. 12, 2013 Officers from the City of Poughkeepsie Police Department stopped WORTMAN, RICKY on Main Street in Poughkeepsie for several City Ordinance and Vehicle and Traffic violations. During his interview WORTMAN admitted to being in the area to purchase drugs.


WORTMAN stated he had no identification but officers observed a wallet in his pocket. The contents of the wallet revealed the wallet in fact belonged to someone else.


Due to recent vehicle break-ins and the fact that Wortman matched the description of a suspect seen in the area of one of the break-ins, the officers contacted the owner of the wallet.  He identified the wallet and other property found on WORTMAN as being his and having been stolen from his vehicle parked in front of his house.


WORTMAN was charged with Criminal Possession of Stolen Property, Loitering for Marijuana and several Vehicle and Traffic and City Ordinance Violations. WORTMAN was remanded to the Dutchess County Jail.
