22-year-old David Brooks Jr, of Poughkeepsie, was reportedly arrested on several Class B felony charges, three counts of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 3rd degree, as well as three counts of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in the 3rd degree.

The Task Force reported that an investigation was launched after it was alleged that Brooks was selling narcotics while being supervised by Dutchess County Probation. Brooks was under supervision because of a prior Felony drug charge that took place in 2022.

Reports indicate that on October 4th, a warrant was issued for the arrest of Brooks following an indictment by the Grand Jury 'related to the sale of narcotics in the Poughkeepsie area.'
