Jaquan R. Rosado, 24, had been charged with six felonies before he was eventually arrested. He stole a motorcycle, which led to a police chase. After that, he laughably crashed the stolen motorcycle into a police car. When he was finally arrested and taken into custody, he decided to quickly post bail. Yet, something wasn’t right.
It was only after he left the precint did the police realize the money was counterfeit. Oh, the irony. So, Rosado was re-arrested. East Fishkill police charged Rosado with first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, second-degree assault, second-degree reckless endangerment, unlawfully fleeing an officer in a motor vehicle, reckless driving and leaving the scene.
New York Upstate reports:
A Millbrook man reported that someone had stolen his Kawasaki motorcycle from his garage on Monday. The man provided police with a description of the suspect’s car, which was broadcasted to nearby patrols.
The description matched a white Ford Econoline seen on the Taconic State Parkway, and police attempted to make a traffic stop in the area. But the driver, later identified as Rosado, didn’t stop for authorities. Instead, the vehicle crossed the center median and began driving southbound in the northbound lanes.
After Rosado posted $700 cash bail and left the East Fishkill Police Department, police discovered that he had paid with counterfeit currency. Rosado was then charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument.
State police later found that the Ford Econoline was stolen from Bridgeport, Connecticut, and Rosado was in possession of counterfeit $100 bills.
Sounds like Rosado is well on his way to a highly-respected life of crime (sarcasm).
