Great Work Recognized: Congratulations to Commissioner Commendation Recipients Officers Steven Horne & Robert Lucas

Great Work Recognized: Congratulations to Commissioner Commendation Recipients Officers Steven Horne & Robert Lucas: On Tuesday, September 9, 2014, the Andrew Square Convenience Store was robbed by a male suspect who, during the course of the robbery, threatened the store employee with a hypodermic needle. The suspect escaped with over seven hundred dollars.  The next day, September 10, 2014, while en route to a community meeting, Captain Greland and Officer Horne were discussing the robbery when they observed an individual matching the description of the suspect standing outside the Stop and Shop. Upon seeing the suspect, with assistance from a nearby detail officer, Officer Robert Lucas, they approached the suspect and took him into custody.  A search of the suspect enabled officers to locate and seize two hypodermic needles. The suspect later admitted to the robberies and stated he would have continued had he not been apprehended. For their keen observations and effective apprehension of a dangerous felon, Captain Greland, Officer Steven Horne & Officer Bobby Lucas are hereby awarded a Commissioner’s Commendation.
