Longo Chased Down This Sweetheart

Re: Police Chief Longo runs down grand theft suspect/HucksOnline

(Daniel W.) Bisher, pictured, had a loaded .40 caliber Glock handgun in his jacket and a knife in his pants pocket, as well as methamphetamine. The gun had been reported stolen in Coeur d’Alene; the motorcycle had been stolen from Spokane, police said. Coeur d’Alene police Capt. Steve Childers called Longo “a street partolman at heart.” Department spokeswoman Sgt. Christie Wood said Longo always monitors his police scanner and frequently backs up patrol officers. Bisher has a criminal history that includes a pending felony charge in Spokane County of second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm. Police said he lives in Spokane, but newspaper archives show he’s also lived in Coeur d’Alene, Spirit Lake and Rathdrum/Meghann M. Cuniff, Sirens & Gavels. More here.

Question: Are you in good enough shape to chase down a criminal?

Police Chief Longo Runs Down Suspect

Coeur d’Alene Police Chief Wayne Longo’s passion for running paid off Tuesday when he helped officer Hank Dunham chase down a grand theft suspect in a foot race that began at the Tire Rama on Appleway. The suspect Daniel W. Bisher, 35, from Spokane, was taken into custody by Longo and Dunham after fleeing on foot from Tire Rama, then south on Government Way, through a vacant field, and then to Carl Jr’s. He was captured at the Hastings parking lot entrance. Twice, Bisher stopped and appeared to reach into the front of his jacket (where he had a Glock pistol) while ignoring Chief Longo’s commands, yelling that “he was not going to jail.” Bisher ran again when Longo pulled his own gun. Bisher took off running again toward Appleway where Dunham and Longo apprehended him. More here. Info provided to HucksOnline by CPD spokeswoman Christie Wood.

Question: Wouldn’t it be safe to say that our police chief is faster than almost anyone else’s?
