MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) – A Bridgeport man wanted on multiple warrants attempted to flee from Milford police early Saturday morning.
At 5:30 a.m., Milford police attempted to stop a car initially for not having its tail lights lit. According to police, the car sped off at high speed onto Intestate 95 southbound after the officer exited his cruiser. Officers followed the car, but discontinued their pursuit for public safety.
A short time later, Milford police were notified by Stratford officers that the car they pursued had broken down in Stratford. Upon investigation, Stratford police arrested Justin Salicrup, 27, of Bridgeport, and detained two other people in the car with him. Salicrup was arrested for reckless driving, operating a vehicle under a suspended driver's license, giving a false name to the police, among other violations including two active warrants for his arrest.
Rescuers intensified efforts Saturday to find survivors who might be trapped amid the ruins of a small Florida Panhandle community nearly obliterated by Hurricane Michael, where one body has already been recovered, tempers are flaring, and power could be out for weeks.
