The Dutchess County Drug Task Force have been actively investigating complaints of drug dealers operating in
the area of N. Clinton Street and Maple Street in the City of Poughkeepsie, as well as several recent overdose
deaths occurring within the Poughkeepsie area. After an investigation into drug sales in this area, a search
warrant was obtained for 400 Maple Street, Apartment 18, and executed on 03/30/23 by the Dutchess County
Sheriff’s Office Emergency Services Unit, K-9 Unit and the Dutchess County Drug Task Force. As a result of the
ongoing investigation and search warrant executed, both Mr. Lowe and Ms. Thomas-Marron were taken into
custody at the scene without incident.
The Dutchess County Drug Task Force is aggressively investigating drug dealers who sell dangerous drugs
including Fentanyl. Fentanyl has been responsible for hundreds of overdose deaths in Dutchess County and
has been found mixed with other drugs like crack cocaine and heroin. The City and Town of Poughkeepsie
lead Dutchess County in overdose deaths, however, these deaths are not all Poughkeepsie
residents. Investigations conducted by the Drug Task Force indicate many vulnerable community members
suffering from addiction travel to this area to purchase narcotics and dangerous drugs from all over Dutchess
County including residents from the Town of East Fishkill, City of Beacon, Town of Hyde Park, Town of
Lagrange, Town of Pleasant Valley and many other communities.
The Dutchess County Drug Task Force is made up of Law Enforcement Investigators from the Dutchess County
Sheriff’s Office, City of Beacon Police, Town of Hyde Park Police, Town of East Fishkill Police, and City of
Poughkeepsie. Police are working to prevent these senseless deaths by targeting drug dealers county-wide by
using all available law enforcement resources.
