Parents in Nassau County recently received a letter from police, warning them about a man trying to lure young children with candy.
A Queens teenager was high on marijuana and speeding when he slammed into a tree, splitting his new car in two and killing four of his friends, a defense attorney conceded Thursday, but he insisted pot was not the reason for the crash.
Emergency service officers eventually tranquilized the dogs using a dart, police said. The pit bulls then were returned home and then removed by the Town of Hempstead Animal Control.
The dogs are still on the loose. Anyone with information is asked to call the Fourth Precinct at (516) 573-6400.
After one man died from West Nile Virus and a number of mosquitos tested positive for the virus, the Nassau County health department has decided to spray the pesticide Scourge.
The robbers got away with cellphones, wallets and other items, according to police. No one was injured.
A fourth teen is now in custody in the reported bullying incident aboard a school bus on Long Island.
