On Thursday, July 20th, 2017 a 4 month investigation led to the arrest of Mr. Christopher Hayes, a 48 year old male from New York, NY. On April 5th, 2017 Mr. Hayes led several officers of the Palisades Interstate Parkway Police Department on a motorcycle pursuit for multiple motor vehicle violations southbound on the Parkway. The vehicle exited into Fort Lee as officers discontinued the pursuit. During the investigation led by Lt. Roman Galloza #345, he discovered that the operator had used his credit card in the northbound Mobile Gas Station just prior to the pursuit. By investigating the credit card transaction, Lt. Galloza was able to identify the operator and issue an arrest warrant for 2nd degree Eluding Police.
Mr. Hayes is currently held in New York City pending extradition on charges related to this pursuit.
