UNIONDALE, N.Y. (CBS 2) – A suspected purse snatcher was behind bars on Long Island, but crime continued in Nassau.

There were two reported purse snatchings in Uniondale on Sunday, but no arrests.

Suffolk County police arrested Ernesto Suarez of Central Islip Friday after he allegedly stole a purse from a shopper in Deer Park.

Investigators said the 33-year-old took off in a stolen vehicle, but then crashed into a police car and a telephone pole.

Suarez was charged with robberies in Central Islip, Bay Shore, Deer Park, Commack and Bohemia.
