A previously convicted man was arrested again after his truck ran out of gas in front of the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office in New York.

On Monday, September 19th, around 11:45am, a Sheriff's Sergeant, Blake Starner, was leaving headquarters when he spotted a disabled pickup truck that had run out of gas at the intersection of Old Route 17 and State Route 17B in Monticello.

The driver, 52-year-old Harold Tyler, said he was waiting for a friend to bring a can of gas for him.

Out of the normal process, Sergeant Starner ran the plates on the truck, which turned up the information that Tyler, a resident of Woodbourne, had a revoked license. It also found that the pickup truck was unregistered - with license plates that did not belong on the truck.

Going to Jail

Tyler was charged with felony grand larceny and was arraigned before Thompson Town Justice Richard Baum.
