Wild police chase in Connecticut ends up in Westchester
Westchester police were out in full force Friday, stopping cars on local highways, after word went out that a Connecticut bank bandit was heading in Westchester's direction. It turns out, the suspect's car was found in Bedford, and that kicked off a massive manhunt. The car, a white Jeep Wrangler, was found at a Mobil gas station east of Bedford Village at the corner of Long Ridge and Pound Ridge roads.
Police say the robbery happened in Darien, CT at People's Bank. Police say the suspect tried to flee Connecticut in a blue jeep, but didn't get too far because police shot out his tires, and the car flipped over. But he somehow got away, straight into Westchester.
Police eventually pulled over a white Jeep on the Hutchinson River Parkway, but that wasn't their guy. At the same time, another white Jeep pulled into the Mobil gas station in Bedford, apparently out of gas. The gas station owner, Anthony Spinella, said the man got out of the jeep asking if there was any cars he could buy right away.
The man was caputured late Friday night in Hartford, CT as police arrested him on unrelated charges.
