North Salem, New York – On June 11, 2019, the New York State Police from the Somers barracks arrested Exondus Barnes, age 21, Dalton Daley, age 21, both of Queens, NY, and Isaiah Styles, age 22, of Brooklyn, NY, for Possession of a Forged Instrument, a class C felony, and Petit Larceny, a class A misdemeanor.
