Slocum detained the man and patted him down, discovering a concealed gun in his waistband. That’s when the man ran off and Slocum gave chase.
Due to concerns that the man was armed, state police were called to assist, bringing in police dogs to help establish a perimeter. State police also sent a helicopter with night vision capabilities to help in the search, and at 3:30 a.m., the helicopter crew spotted a man hiding by a vehicle at 50 Corey Place.
Officers converged on the spot and ordered the man to surrender but he refused, according to the news release. Legere was bitten by a state police dog before he was finally taken into custody.
At the time of his arrest, police said, Legere was in possession of crack cocaine.
