Local Cops “Watchful” As Boston Manhunt Continues

As a massive manhunt continues for one of the men suspected of setting the bombs that killed three and injured dozens, New Haven cops are staying vigilant, said police spokesman Officer Dave Hartman.

Since Monday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon, New Haven cops have investigated 10 suspicious package reports, have a close eye on train stations, and are in regular contact with state and federal law enforcement, Hartman said.

“At this time, some of our Officers are focusing on critical infrastructure and transportation hubs,” he said. “We have been in regular contact with our partners from the FBI, Connecticut State Police, Yale University Police Department, Metropolitan Transit Authority Police Department and Amtrak Police Department. We’ve been able and remain ready to assist those agencies if the need should arise, but are otherwise engaged in our normal day-to-day operations.”

The search for the suspect, 19-year-old Dzhokar Tsarnaev, has extended as far as the South Norwalk train station, where an early morning sweep found nothing, according to the Register.

“We encourage the public to report suspicious items, people and activity, as they would on any given day,” Hartman said. “The number for the New Haven police department is 203-946-6316.

“Anyone with information concerning Dzhokar Tsarnaev, the 19-year-old suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, are asked to call the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI, 911, your local Police Department or submit information at https://bostonmarathontips.fbi.gov/. You may also contact your local FBI office or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.”
