In thanking his family, he touched on a law enforcement officer’s sacrifices such as birthdays, holidays and special days but acknowledged an officer’s family’s sacrifices, thanking his wife, and telling the crowd of her support and sacrifices she has made through his career. “…She is my force.”

In closing, Ciampa addressed the community of Morrisville, “We are here for you and we hear you. This community will have a voice and I promise, I will listen.” “……We will do this together.”

In other Council news, Jim Dillon, Bristol Borough’s manager, also introduced  as Morrisville Borough’s manager on an interim basis. This role will be in addition to his existing role in Bristol Borough. The agreement between the two boroughs comes on the heels of Judith Danko’s resignation from the role of lead administrator.

Two in Custody after Police Chase Rips Through Lower Bucks Saturday Night

Published

on

Two men are in custody, early Sunday with a third identified, as a result of a police chase that started in New Jersey Saturday night around 7:30 p.m., law enforcement officials said.

New Jersey State Police were pursuing a red vehicle into Bucks County through sections of Morrisville Borough, Falls Township, and ending in Lower Makefield Township (LMT). The vehicle was abandoned and the suspect(s) reportedly fled on foot.

LMT police Chief Ken Coluzzi said late Saturday,  New Jersey State Police were leading the investigation as the chase is believed to have started with an armed carjacking in New Jersey.

The beginning of the pursuit by police in Morrisville lit up social media for at least 90 minutes with a New Jersey State Police helicopter pursuing the chase from above and attempting to block the vehicle’s entrance onto 295 from the  Route 1/Oxford Valley Road location. LMT officials took precautionary measures issuing a shelter-in-place, which lasted for about 20 minutes and was lifted once no threat to the public existed, officials said.

People on social media commented on the sirens, police chase, helicopters, and bridges closed to NJ. Pictures showed helicopters over the bridges and armed police activity on the street combing the area for the suspects who fled on foot. Tipsters on the Lower Bucks Source Meta page helped to pinpoint the actual location of the police activity, Route 1/Oxford Valley Road interchange, where police were seen loading the red vehicle they chased onto a flatbed tow truck.

During the hot pursuit, police and the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission reportedly  blocked its bridges so the fleeing vehicle would not escape into Trenton, officials said

New Jersey State Police did not respond to requests for comment on the chase or the identities of the suspects taken into custody as of publication time.
