In case anyone was wondering, and before Marc says anything, Eagle 1 was already airborne and able to orbit the suspects location and direct responding units in. Great job!

Doubt it. If the helicopter had any role, Bane would have had that has the headline. Almost 9 p.m., probably too dark for the old bird…and the helicopter.

Before anyone gets carried away and starts claiming credit you should know what really happened. The subject was apprehended a few doors from where I live. If it were not for the alert behavior of several local citizens who knows what could have happened. This is what I was told when I arrived. A frequent customer of the 7-Eleven told me he saw the store being robbed and he followed the man into Long Bar Harbor. The suspect was driving a light colored truck and was driving at a high rate of speed down Long Harbor Rd and East Baker Avenue. Two neighbors were walking on the road and said the truck came close to hitting them. The man following the suspect told them to call 911 and tell them the 7-Eleven had been robbed and that he was following the suspect.
The suspect ended up near the entrance to the campground where the man pursuing the suspect and another neighbor blocked his path with their vehicles to prevent him from turning around and escaping. The suspect rammed the Escalade in an attempt to get away. I was told that the police arrived and apprehended the subject at that point.
When I arrived the subject was already handcuffed and in a police car. Everything I stated here was told to me by the three people who were directly involved in the situation. I saw the damaged Esaclade and the truck of the suspect.
The suspect was removed from the first police car and appeared to be very unsteady as though he was under the influence of either alcohol or drugs.
At this point those of us at the scene left.

Nancy – thanks for your play by play. Now no one will “get carried away and claim .credit”….let me save you some trouble.
7-11 Abingdon was robbed at gunpoint. Suspect was apprehended and taken into custody a short time later.
I think you’ve read too many Nancy Drew books.
