Upon arrival, Troopers located DAVID TEIPELKE, 41 of Roscoe, NY, on the roof of the residence. TEIPELKE was unable to keep his balance and subsequently fell from the roof.

Investigation revealed that TEIPELKE had driven his 1987 Honda off the roadway and become stuck prior to breaking into the home on Riverside Drive. He was arraigned in Town of Rockland Court and remanded to the Sullivan County Jail with no bail set.
