On Friday, January 6th, the Ithaca Police Department arrested Lasalle D. Hargrove, 31, of Lansing, New York in connection with a December 30th home invasion shooting in the 100 block of Chestnut Street.
Hargrove was also wanted on active arrest warrants for weapons possession out of the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office. When police attempted to initiate a traffic stop on Elmira Road, Hargrove fled the scene in his vehicle, leading police on a brief pursuit before being apprehended on Seven Mile Drive in the Town of Ithaca.
The Ithaca-Tompkins Specialized Response Team conducted a high-risk traffic stop to take Hargrove into custody without further incident. He has been charged by the IPD with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a Class C Felony, and first-degree burglary, a Class B Violent Felony.
Hargrove was arraigned in Ithaca City Court and remanded to the Tompkins County Jail on $200,000 cash bail, $200,000 secured bond, or 10% of a million unsecured bond. Additional charges are expected to be filed by the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office.
