At around 1:00 p.m. on July 13, 2021, New York State Police’s Lee Jessie and Trooper Newell Field patrolled a gun lock and patrolled the First North Street area of the city of Syracuse.
Investigators Jessie and Trooper Newell conducted a traffic check on a U-Haul delivery van and briefly interviewed the operator, who was later identified as Anthony Glenn.
During the interview, Glenn fled the traffic control location and a brief vehicle chase was initiated. Glenn stopped short, ran in front of the U-Haul car, and fled on foot.
The abandoned U-Haul van contained about 30 grams of fentanyl / heroin for sale, about 6 grams of crack cocaine for sale, and a loaded .40 caliber pistol magazine.
Troopers, along with officers from the Syracuse Police Dept., responded to the area to help, watching Glenn get out of a second vehicle and then enter a residence.
A dialogue between the state police and Glenn was quickly established which successfully de-escalated the incident and facilitated Glenn’s arrest.
The execution of a search warrant on a vehicle and 515 Carbon Street residence resulted in the confiscation of a stolen .223 caliber AR15 assault rifle, 2 high capacity AR15 magazines, .223 caliber ammunition and more than $ 12,000 in cash.
