Aircraft artistry amazes all

By the time Monday morning rolled around, there’s a good chance that folks from Chicopee, the region and even throughout New England woke up with stiff necks following the excitement that swept through the skies over the weekend with the Great New England Air Show.

The event, which David Smith, U.S. Air Force Reserves Lt. Col., Air Show Director and chief pilot at the 337th Airlift Squadron said, was one of the premiere events of its kind in the country. It drew in an estimated 160,000 people on Saturday and another 200,000 on Sunday at the Westover Air Reserve base in Chicopee.  READ MORE


***FROM THE BEAT*** On May 21st, at 3:30pm, Officers were called to Walmart for a Larceny in Progress. Walmart Loss Prevention reported that a customer used counterfeit money to purchase items. Officers were able to stop the party outside Walmart. He had used $700 in counterfeit money to purchase items. The party did not have any identification, and was very evasive with responding officers. Det Michael Dion responded, and the party was placed under arrest and transported to HQ. Subsequently, Det Dion located another party, parked in a vehicle near the Home Depot, that was also involved in this. He was also placed under arrest. This is still an active, joint, investigation, involving the US Secret Service, and other agenices, and there is a possibility these parties used counterfeit money throughout the Commonwealth. Also, we would like to say job well done, to the Walmart Loss Prevention Department.

Arrested were :
2160 Gleason Ave 1684 Banyer Pl Apt #1
Bronx, NY 10462 Bronx, NY 10473

-Uttering a Counterfeit Note -5 Counts Receive Stolen Prop
-Larceny over $250 -Poss 1oz of Marijuana
-Misleading a Police Officer -Mislead a Police Officer

Both parties were held on $50,000 bail each, and transported to Chicopee District Court this morning. ALSO, For all of our Businesses, these $100 bills are the old version. They have a waxy feel, AND, if you use a marking pen, it turns YELLOW.

***FROM THE BEAT*** May 19, 2015 at 1025am, Officers Moran and Nichols were working a road detail in the area of Montgomery St and Fitzpatrick Lane. They heard a loud bang, and found that a vehicle had struck a retaining wall, light pole, and stopped in the middle of the road. They radioed in the accident, and responded. Officer Moran found the driver hunched over, and not responding to his voice. Finding both doors locked, he used his police radio to smash the passenger side window, and both officers were able to remove the male party. Officers performed CPR on the party until CFD EMT's arrived. The driver, a 92yr old Chicopee man, was transported to Baystate Medical Center. At the time of transport, he had regained consciousness and was responsive. Officer Moran was treated on scene for cuts to his hand and arm.
