The Dutchess County District Attorney’s Office Drug Task Force began an investigation early this year into fentanyl and other dangerous drug sales occurring in the area of 455 Main Street in the City of Poughkeepsie. Drug Task Force Agents identified a narcotics dealer operating in that area that resulted in a search warrant being issued for a residence inside 455 Main Street. On 03/20/24 Drug Task Force Agents with the assistance of the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Services Unit executed a search warrant at an apartment within 455 Main Street. As a result of the execution of this warrant a significant quantity of fentanyl, crack cocaine, a handgun, handgun ammunition and rifle ammunition was seized by Drug Task Force Agents. This investigation resulted in the following arrest at the scene:

Tyrone A. Moye, age 37, charged with four counts of Criminal Possession of Controlled Substance in the 3rd degree, a class B Felony. Mr. Moye is being held at the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office until his arraignment later this date. Several additional charges are pending.

The Drug Task Force was assisted by the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Bureau, K-9 Unit and Unmanned Aircraft Unit, the City of Poughkeepsie Police Department and the Town of Hyde Park Police Department. Additional charges are pending in this case.
