A motorist from Peekskill driving a stolen car from Ossining with a blood alcohol content nearly triple the legal limit was busted by Yorktown police after rolling over the vehicle on Route 100.
The Yorktown Police Department received reports of the crash on Route 100 shortly after 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 7, leading to a joint investigation between their department and the Ossining Police Department, who were investigating reports of the stolen vehicle.
Police said that the investigation determined that the driver, Hector Aranda-Sanchez, 24, was driving a car that had been stolen in Ossining and his blood alcohol content was greater than .18 percent, more than double the legal limit. Further investigation revealed that Aranda-Sanchez was also operating the stolen vehicle without a license.
Aranda-Sanchez was taken into custody by officers from the Ossining Police Department and processed for charges related to the stolen vehicle.
On Tuesday, Jan. 30, officers from Yorktown responded to the Town of Ossining Courthouse to arrest Aranda-Sanchez for other charges, which include a felony count of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, as well as aggravated driving while intoxicated with a blood alcohol content greater than .18 percent and driving while intoxicated, both misdemeanors. He was also cited for unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a traffic infraction.
Aranda-Sanchez is due back in court next month to answer the charges.
