Old Town Police are Looking for a Man Whose Car Ran Into a House
Old Town Police have issued an arrest warrant for a driver whose vehicle ran into a house.
Deputy Chief of Police Lee Miller says Old Town Police received a call at approximately 8:39 Tuesday evening reporting that a vehicle had crashed into a house at 393 Stillwater Avenue. The caller told authorities that the driver and a passenger had fled into the woods.
Before it hit the house, the same vehicle reportedly struck and destroyed the Old Town Police Department's radar trailer.
Officers were able to identify the driver of the vehicle as 57-year-old Roger Eldridge of Greenbush. A temporary warrant has been issued for the following charges:
- Aggravated criminal mischief
- Criminal Mischief
- Driving to endanger
- Leaving the scene of a property damage accident
Police are familiar with Eldridge who was arrested in June for operating under the influence. He is currently on probation.
Police say neither of the people in the house were hurt.
