On June 11th, members of the City of Newburgh Police Department along with members of
the New York State Police executed a no-knock search warrant at the Fogarty Apartments, 162
Johnston Street Apt. 102 in the City of Newburgh.
This search warrant was the result of month-long narcotics investigation which began as a result
of numerous complaints from residents and business owners.
Investigators recovered 5.8 grams of crack-cocaine and charged the resident, Hardy Williams Jr
77 years old with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 3rd Degree. He was booked
and released pending a future court appearance.
It should be noted that this is the second time in the last two years that Hardy was arrested and
involved with selling narcotics at The Fogarty Apartment Complex.
The City of Newburgh Police Department will continue to work with our partners to address
neighborhood complaints of drug-dealing and other quality of life crimes. Anyone with
information regarding criminal activity in their neighborhood is encouraged to call City of
Newburgh Police at 845-561-3131. Callers can remain anonymous.
