DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. - New York State Police in Poughkeepsie are looking for the community’s assistance as they search for a wanted man accused of driving with a blood alcohol level nearly triple the legal limit while he had a juvenile passenger who was also under the influence of alcohol.
State police are looking for Poughkeepsie resident Joseph Crapanzano, who has a warrant out for his arrest for endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated driving while intoxicated stemming from a November 2015 arrest.
