GC Police Chase and Capture Three Suspects in One Day
In the early afternoon of Friday, May 3, Sgt. Whitton of the Glen Cove PD spotted a gray van with two occupants stopped at the Glen Cove railroad station. When the driver saw the police, he forced the woman's head down to where she could not be seen and started to drive away. Sgt. Whitton put on his lights and followed. The gray van stopped, but as Sgt. Whitton got out of the squad car to approach the van, it sped away. The sergeant radioed in identification, and headed in pursuit. The van, traveling on Forest Avenue, went through a light at Walnut Street, and continued driving, sometimes on the wrong side of the road and heading into Locust Valley. At Thirteenth Street, the driver hit a car he was attempting to pass, and continued down Forest Avenue without stopping. Sgt. Whitton went around to head the driver off at Birch Hill Road, and the driver then attempted to knock the sergeant off the road.
