On 01/29/2020 at approximately 6:04 PM, a Trooper assigned to the Troop D Quality of Life Task Force spotted a vehicle on School Street in Putnam commit several motor vehicle violations. As the Trooper pulled out to stop the vehicle it sped down May Street. The Trooper caught up to the offending vehicle and activated his emergency police lights and the vehicle came to an abrupt stop behind Price Chopper. The driver, who the Trooper recognized as 25 year old Daniel Bowling of Woodstock from a prior narcotic arrest, departed the vehicle and locked the car. The Trooper informed Bowling that he was a subject of a traffic stop and needed to get back into his car. Bowling was asked numerous times to return to his vehicle so that the traffic stop could be conducted in a safe manner, but Bowling became hostile toward the Trooper and refused to return to his car. The Trooper then approached Bowling and was eventually able to place him under arrest for Interfering with a Police Officer. Two Putnam Police Officers arrived on scene to assist the Trooper and provide back-up. During a subsequent investigation, the Trooper believed that narcotics may be present in the vehicle. K9 Ambrie, a narcotic detecting Labrador, alerted to the presence of narcotics coming from within the vehicle. K9 Ambrie then sniffed the interior of the car ultimately locating approximately 400 grams of an illegal controlled substance. Also located within the car was narcotic packaging materials and $630.00 in cash. K9 Ambrie was later deployed to sniff the seized money and alerted to the odor of narcotics. Also located and seized from the vehicle was an aluminum baseball bat that was in between the front driver’s seat and the driver’s door, where Bowling was standing when the Trooper was attempting to arrest him. Bowling admitted that he put the bat there for protection. Bowling was transported to Troop D where he was processed and charged with Interfering/Resisting Arrest, Weapons in a Motor Vehicle, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of a Controlled Substance with intent to sell and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia along with several motor vehicle charges. Bowling was released on a $10,000.00 bond and will appear in Danielson Superior Court on 02129/2020.
