The Nassau County Police Department dealt with a fellow officer being badly injured while working on Sunrise Highway, a young suspect who foolishly thought his fleet feet could escape the long arm of the law, and several instances of shoplifting and property being stolen from parked cars.

Joseph had a loaded handgun concealed in his waistband, so when the officer stopped his car he exited the vehicle and fled on foot. After a foot pursuit, Joseph was found in a backyard on Elm Street where his handgun was recovered. No one was injured during the incident.
