FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE #22-03 Issued on: 06/13/22 @12:30 p.m.
On Thursday, June 9, 2022, the New Windsor Police Department conducted an underage alcohol sale enforcement detail at 23 businesses in town that are licensed to sell alcoholic beverages.
The below businesses and associated employees did sell alcoholic beverages to an underage person during this detail:
1. QuickChek – 170 Windsor Hwy. – Fabrizio A. Rimac, 18 years old of Newburgh, NY.
2. Preet Liquors – 1035 Little Britain Road – Ms. Teresita P. Garcia, 70 years old of New Windsor, NY.
3. Citgo Food Mart – 1069 Little Britain Road – Mr. Lalith S. Udamadura, 56 years old of New Windsor, NY.
4. Wine O’Clock Liquor Store – 436 Blooming Grove Tpk. – Ms. Sanghee Sayed, 64 years old of Newburgh, NY.
Each employee was charged with Unlawfully Dealing with a Child in the First Degree (Penal Law 260.20-2) – a class AMisdemeanor. All four employees were processed and released on an appearance ticket to appear back in Town court on 6/28/2022.
The Police Department will also send a written violation notice to the New York State Liquor Authority for each business involved. The businesses will then face a hearing with the New York State Liquor Authority for the violations and a severe penalty can be imposed upon the businesses themselves.
Police Chief Robert Doss commented, “The sale of alcoholic beverages to a minor is one of the most serious violations of the Alcohol Beverage Control Law. It should be known that in the weeks prior to conducting this detail, we first visited each of these 23 locations to discuss the seriousness of underage alcohol sales and we warned them that we would be planning enforcement details in the upcoming weeks. These four businesses clearly did not heed our warnings. I can ensure the community that further enforcement efforts will take place in the very near future.”
The New Windsor Police Department recently achieved agency re-accreditation through the New York State Law Enforcement Accreditation Program. The re-accreditation certification is good through June of 2026. The Police Department has been continuously accredited since 1996. In the first photo, supervisors of the department pose with the newly received NYS Accreditation Certificate. A second photo shows Lt. Daniel J. Valeri, our accreditation manager, receiving the John Kimball O’Neil Certificate of Achievement in recognition of his leadership and dedication to the accreditation program.
What does maintaining NYS Law Enforcement Accreditation mean and why is it important?
The NYS Law Enforcement Accreditation Program provides formal recognition that an agency meets or exceeds general expectations of quality in the field. The program has four principal goals:
In essence, accreditation acknowledges the implementation of policies that are conceptually sound and operationally effective. The cornerstone of the Accreditation Program lies in established standards that contain a clear statement of professional requirements. Agencies participating in the program conduct a thorough analysis of their organization to determine how existing operations can be adapted to meet established standards. When an agency adopts policies and procedures that meet the standards, a team of independent professionals conducts an on-site assessment to verify that all applicable standards have been successfully implemented. This process culminates with a decision by the NYS Law Enforcement Accreditation Council that the agency is worthy of accreditation.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE #22-04 Issued on: 06/20/22 @11:00 a.m.
On June 13, 2022, the New Windsor Police Department conducted an undercover criminal investigation at the A & A Spa, located at 357 Windsor Highway, after receiving a complaint from a customer that prostitution was occurring inside the business. During the investigation, an undercover Police Officer was offered sexual conduct in return for a fee by an employee of the spa.
The arrested employee was: Ms. Suwan Yang, 56 years old of Flushing, NY. Ms. Yang was charged with Prostitution (Penal Law 230.00 – B Misdemeanor). She was issued an appearance ticket to appear on June 28, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. for arraignment at the Town of New Windsor Justice Court.
Police Chief Robert Doss noted, “I anticipate additional undercover operations and inspections of these types of massage parlors and spas very soon. Consider this fair warning to those who operate these types of illicit businesses and to those individuals who visit them. We will not tolerate this type of activity in this town.”
Town Supervisor George Meyers stated, “The fact that this is occurring across the road from one of our local schools is troubling to me. Any future arrests will include the names and addresses of those involved in this illegal activity.”
Traffic Enforcement Alert: Officers from the NWPD Traffic Safety Unit will be conducting traffic posts this week on Clarkview Road to ensure vehicles are stopping at the three way stop intersection and to watch for anyone speeding. This road has become a residential cut-through for many motorists and we want to remind everyone to obey the traffic laws. If you don’t, you just may meet Officer Bohr on one of our Harley Davidson Police Motorcycles. Drive safe and slow down. It’s for everyone’s safety!

Police Arrest Man in Connection to Flag Pole Vandalism Incidents
This is a joint press release by New Windsor & Washingtonville Police Departments
Release Date – August 14, 2020:
The Town of New Windsor Police Department arrested a man today in connection with two flag poles being cut down in the Town of New Windsor. The first incident was reported on July 9th at a commercial strip mall on Windsor Highway and the second incident was reported at a cemetery on Erie Ave. on July 10th. Additionally, this same man was charged by the Village of Washingtonville Police Department for their July 8th incidents involving the cutting down of a flagpole at their 911 memorial and for vandalism to a church owned sign in their village.
Arrested was: Andre P. Narbonne, 40 years old, of the Town of New Windsor. He was charged with 2 counts of Criminal Mischief, second degree (class D felonies), 1 count of Criminal Mischief, third degree (class E felony) and 1 count of Criminal Mischief, fourth degree (class A misdemeanor). Mr. Narbonne was arraigned by New Windsor Town Justice George J. Meyers IV. Mr. Narbonne was released without bail due to the charges in this case being non-bail qualifying offenses under the new bail reform provisions of the law. Mr. Narbonne is scheduled appear in New Windsor Town Court on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. and in the Village of Washingtonville Court on Wednesday, September 9, 2020 at 4:30 p.m. for further court action.
Mr. Narbonne left the area for the State of Washington just after committing the crimes in New Windsor and this delayed his arrest until recently when he returned to New York.
New Windsor Police Chief Robert L. Doss commented on the two New Windsor incidents, “I am very proud of the New Windsor Police Officers that were able to identify Mr. Narbonne as the perpetrator of these crimes and I am very thankful to our Law Enforcement partners that assisted us in this investigation. These deeply disturbing incidents involving flag poles being cut down in New Windsor are disgraceful and offensive. The fact that both flag poles involved were proudly flying American flags when they were cut down just adds to the outrageousness of these crimes. Our country’s flag has been an inspiring symbol of democracy, justice and freedom for over 200 years. It is sickening to me that someone could do something like this while not caring about the sacrifices that have been suffered by those who have defended our freedom.”
Village of Washingtonville Police Chief Brian Zaccaro commented on the incidents that occurred in Washingtonville, “Today brings some closure from the unsettling incidents that were discovered in the Town of New Windsor and the Village of Washingtonville early this past July. This individual would have never
expected that the damage he deliberately caused would have resulted in the mass outpouring from the community and the attention of the nation. While there is some negative publicity that law enforcement has been receiving lately, I want to point out that this arrest, is a perfect example of how different law enforcement agencies work closely together every single day to solve crimes. If it was not for the dedicated and professional men and women in our law enforcement agencies, crimes like these could easily go unsolved. But that did not happen here, we worked tirelessly and shared information with each other so we could bring closure to both our great communities. I am profoundly proud of the hard work that everyone did to bring someone to justice on these cases.”
Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler stated, “Obviously, the deliberate defacing and destruction of flag-poles and property in areas set aside to remember the fallen heroes of September 11, 2001, and at places of religious worship is especially distressing to all in the community. I am deeply grateful for the hard-work, professionalism and cooperation that our local, state and federal law enforcement partners have shown in this investigation, which is emblematic of their overall untiring efforts to protect all Orange County’s residents and property.”
The Town of New Windsor Police Department and the Village of Washingtonville Police Department were assisted in this investigation by several partner Law Enforcement agencies. They include: the New York State Police, the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, the U.S. Marshall’s Service, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office,
the Orange County District Attorney’s Office and the Hudson Valley Crime Analysis Center.
Anyone with additional information regarding these crimes can contact the New Windsor Police Department at (845)565-7000 or the Village of Washingtonville Police Department at (845)496-9123.

The New Windsor Police Department and the Village of Washingtonville Department will not be releasing the booking photograph of Mr. Narbonne due to it now 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 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.
