MINEOLA, NY (TIP): Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano honored Nassau County Police Officer Daniel Johannessen yesterday at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive & Legislative Building for his efforts in aiding in the apprehension of two robbery suspects while off-duty in Suffolk County earlier this month.
Officer Johannessen was off-duty when he entered Cool Monkey Desserts in Stony Brook and was alerted by employees that someone had just displayed a weapon and tried to rob the store. Officer Johannessen followed the suspects in his car until Suffolk County officers responded.
His heroic actions resulted in the arrests of the suspects in connection with six armed robberies that occurred in Suffolk over the previous week. County Executive Mangano honored and thanked Officer Johannessen for the bravery that he has exhibited both on and off-duty.
