MONTICELLO – A Monticello man is under arrest after he led local police on a high-speed chase through the streets of Monticello Sunday night.
Terrell Troy, 37, of Monticello, was pulled over on Broadway just before 10:30 p.m. when for driving erratically. He sped off, leading officers in a high-speed pursuit driving in the wrong lane on Broadway, running past stop signs and running over traffic signs.
During the chase, police saw Troy throw a small plastic case out of the car.
He was finally stopped on St. John Street and the case was recovered. It contained less than one gram of crack cocaine, eight glassine envelopes of heroin and a crack pipe. He was also driving with a suspended license.
Troy was charged with two felony counts of reckless driving and criminal possession of a controlled substance. He was also charged with misdemeanors for unlawful fleeing a police officer, criminal possession of drugs, reckless driving and aggravated unlicensed operation, as well as being issued 24 vehicle and traffic tickets.
Troy was also wanted by Monticello Police in a separate investigation into the cashing of a forged check for $675 at a local business last December. He was charged for that with felonies of forgery, criminal possession of a forged instrument and misdemeanor petit larceny.
He was sent to the Sullivan County Jail without bail.
