MONTICELLO - A Sunday night police chase that wound through the village's side streets, went the wrong direction on Broadway and knocked over traffic signs ended in multiple felony charges for the man involved, Monticello police said.

Terrell T. Troy, 37, of Monticello, faces two felony counts of first-degree reckless endangerment and a felony charge of fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance, according to village police.

He was also charged with several misdemeanors and issued 24 vehicle and traffic violation summonses, police said.

Shortly after 10:20 p.m., Sgt. David Lindsay was patrolling on Forestburgh Road when he saw a car driving erratically and he attempted to initiate a traffic stop.

As Lindsay got out of his vehicle, Troy drove off at a high rate of speed, running past stop signs, driving in the wrong lane on Broadway and running over traffic signs, police said.

During the chase, police said they saw Troy throw a small plastic case out of his car, which was later found to contain 0.8 grams of crack cocaine, eight glassine envelopes of heroin and a crack pipe.

With the help of the Sullivan County Sheriff's office and state police, officers were able to stop Troy on St. John Street and arrest him, police said.

After his apprehension, officers discovered Troy was also wanted in a separate investigation in the cashing of a forged $675 check at a village business from December and charged him with felony counts of second-degree forgery, second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and misdemeanor petit larceny.

Troy was arraigned before acting Village of Monticello Justice Leo Glass and sent to Sullivan County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
