GREENE — Shortly before 1 a.m. on January 23, 2017, New York State Police from Greene responded to a Chenango County 911 report of a one vehicle crash on County Road 2 near Echo Lake Road in the Town of Greene.

Upon arriving, troopers were advised by the fire department personnel that the driver of the vehicle had fled the scene on foot into the woods. An investigation revealed that the driver was Alexander D. Drost, age 23, of Greene.

In an effort to locate Drost, Troopers checked his home on Genesee Street, but were unable to make contact with the driver.

Hours later, another 911 call reported that a man had knocked on the door to a home at 1112 County Road 2 asking for help “because he was cold.” Upon further investigation, troopers state that Drost was this man.

It was during a foot check of the surrounding area that troopers found the suspect sheltered in the cab of a large backhoe that had been parked in a nearby field.
