Man Arrested on Federal Drug Possession Charges

On June 15th, 2021, the Town of New Windsor Police Department along with the FBI Hudson Valley Safe Streets Task Force, the City and Town of Newburgh Police Departments, the New York State Police and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office Special Operations Group executed a court authorized search warrant at a residence on Belle Court in the Town of New Windsor. This search warrant was the result of a two month-long investigation into the illegal possession of narcotics by an individual residing at this residence.

This search resulted in the seizure of 197 grams of crack cocaine, 138 grams of powdered cocaine and approximately $15,000 in U.S. Currency.

Bobby J. Allen, age 55 of New Windsor NY, was arrested and charged federally with narcotics crimes. He was transported to the Hudson Valley Office of the FBI and is awaiting presentation to the Southern District Court in White Plains later today. He faces a minimum of 10-years in a federal penitentiary if convicted.

New Windsor Police Chief Robert L. Doss stated, “Today’s arrest further demonstrates the focus of this police department on public safety. Mr. Allen has shown society that he is a very dangerous criminal. He already has six felony convictions on his record and he was out of prison on New York State Parole for a firearm conviction when he decided it would be a good idea to come to New Windsor and deal illegal narcotics. That was a big mistake. He is now facing ten years in federal prison for his actions. The message here is clear. If you are dealing illegal narcotics in New Windsor, we will find you and you will be brought to justice. I want to thank our federal, state, county and municipal law enforcement partners for their support and valued assistance in this case.”

The New Windsor Police Department will not be releasing a booking photograph of Mr. Allen due to it being prohibited under New York Public Officers Law, Section 89, which was amended in mid-2019 to prohibit the release of booking photographs due to it being an “unwarranted invasion of personal privacy” unless it serves a legitimate Law Enforcement purpose.

A criminal charge is merely an allegation that a defendant has committed a violation of the criminal law, and it is not evidence of guilt. All defendants are presumed innocent and entitled to a fair trial, during which it will be the State of New York’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
