Police Log: Jan. 31, 2013 — Felony arrest


---- — PLATTSBURGH — A West Chazy woman was arrested Monday after she allegedly drove into a ditch while under the influence of drugs and with a child in her vehicle.

Plattsburgh-based State Police said troopers were patrolling Interstate 87 at about 10 a.m. when they spotted Angie L. Cruz’s vehicle off the road.

Police said Cruz, 36, is believed to have been under the influence of an unspecified narcotic and marijuana and was subsequently arrested for operating a vehicle while impaired by drugs.

She was also charged with felony DWI, an automatic offense since there was a child present in the vehicle.

Cruz was released on her own recognizance and is scheduled to face the charges in Plattsburgh Town Court Jan. 31.
