On July 13, 2021, at around 1 p.m., Investigator Lee Jessie and Trooper Newell Field of the New York State Police were operating as a gun interdiction unit and patrolling the area of First North Street in the city of Syracuse.
Investigator Jessie and Trooper Newell conducted a traffic stop of a U-Haul van and briefly interviewed the operator, later identified as Anthony Glenn.
During the interview, Glenn fled the scene of the traffic stop, and a short vehicle pursuit was initiated. Glenn abruptly stopped, and ran from the U-Haul van, and continued to flee on foot.
Inside the abandoned U-Haul van were around 30 grams of Fentanyl/Heroin packaged for sale, around 6 grams of crack cocaine packaged for sale, as well as a loaded .40 caliber pistol magazine.
Troopers, along with officers from the Syracuse Police Dept., responded to the area to assist and observed Glenn exiting a second vehicle and then entering a residence.
A dialog between State Police and Glenn was quickly established, which successfully de-escalated the incident and facilitated Glenn’s arrest.
The execution of a search warrant of a vehicle and the residence of 515 Carbon Street resulted in the seizure of a stolen .223 caliber AR15 assault rifle, 2 high capacity AR15 magazines, .223 caliber ammunition, and excess of $12,000 in cash.
