LEWISBORO, N.Y. Police arrested a North Salem man Thursday on several motor vehicle violation charges including driving without a valid drivers license. Police were reportedly driving on Mead Street when they noticed a gray pick-up truck traveling south at an excessive speed. According to police, the officer turned around to stop the truck and discovered that it had pulled into a driveway and the driver, Foster Moore, allegedly had jumped out and was trying to hide from the officer. The officer discovered that Moore, 30, of Mills Road in North Salem, had a suspended and revoked license.
The officer also discovered that the truck contained two St. Bernards, so he let Moore make a call to arrange to have the dogs picked up. Arrangements were also made to have the truck towed from the scene.
During this time, an officer from the North Salem Police Department stopped and offered to assist. New York State Police were requested as back-up so the North Salem officer could return to service. Soon after, both NYS police and the North Salem officer were called to assistant for a serious accident in North Salem and left the scene.
Moores vehicle was reportedly towed and he was taken to the Lewisboro police station for processing, where he was issued a total of four summonses. A bail of $250 was paid and Moore was released. He is due back in court on Aug. 8.
