RIVER EDGE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — U.S. Marshals working with the DEA apprehended an allegedly armed and dangerous drug suspect following a chase in Bergen County on Wednesday.

“There were police everywhere,” River Edge Schools Superintendent, Dr. Tova Ben-Dov told 1010 WINS’ Rebecca Granet.

Authorities were chasing Kevin Frye, who a spokesman for the U.S. Marshal service said, was on the loose in an indictment case for conspiracy to distribute narcotics.

Marshals said the chase started when Frye jumped into a car in Hackensack. Authorities tried to box him in, and he crashed into a retaining wall.

Frye then ran into a wooded area off of Davis Road and Rt. 4 in River Edge where he was tracked down and bit on the ankle by a police dog.

The chase led to a soft lockdown of the Cherry Hill school complex.

“There were cars and there were lights, and there were sirens going off,” Dr. Ben-Dov said.

Frye was given medical attention and taken to Hackensack University Medical Center.
