Suffolk County police arrested a man and seized a dirt bike after he was riding recklessly and fled police in Central Islip.
Third Precinct Community Support Unit officers initiated a traffic stop on Elmer Turcios after he operated a 2008 Kawasaki 250 dirt bike northbound on Wilson Boulevard, a public roadway, which is in violation of Suffolk traffic law. Turcios fled on the dirt bike and went to his home, at 1040 Wilson Blvd., where police arrested him on the driveway at approximately 5:10 p.m.
Turcios, 24, was charged with unlawful fleeing of a police officer and four counts of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and was issued 20 summonses in relation to his vehicle and traffic law violations.
The vehicle was seized and towed to the impound yard in Westhampton. Turcios was issued a Desk Appearance Ticket and will be arraigned at First District Court on a later date.
