Dutchess County Drug Task Force's Latest Case
Earlier this week, the Dutchess County Drug Task Force received permission to execute a search warrant for a resident in the town of Wappingers by the name of Anthony J. Gonzales. Gonzales age 34, had been the subject of an investigation into drug sales in the town of Wappingers as well as parts of Fishkill and other surrounding areas.
The investigation took the task force to a residence on Route 376 where the search warrant was executed. Following the execution of the warrant and subsequent investigation of the residence, law enforcement placed Gonzales under arrest and charged him with ' criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell'.
Det. Sgt. Adam D. Harris stated that the drug task force found what is being called a 'large quantity of cocaine' at the residence as well as 'U.S currency'. The implication is that the money found is tied to the drugs via the alleged sales. In the article from Daily Voice, it was stated that currently Gonzales still remains in police custody.
