Atlantic City surveillance officers help catch N.Y. fugitive

Atlantic City police arrested an armed fugitive from New York after fled a domestic dispute in the city.
Officers were called to the Rodeway Inn just before noon Wednesday, and told the man had a knife and handgun, Lt. Kevin Fair said.
While officers were responding the scene, officers in the Surveillance Center saw Ramel Harris fleeing the area.
Surveillance personnel followed him on cameras as he ran onto the Boardwalk, according to the report.
Detectives Darrin Lorady and Nicholas Berardis confronted Harris in the beach block of Morris Avenue.
He was arrested after a brief struggle, Fair said.
Harris, who initially gave officers a fake name, was allegedly found with a knife. Police searched Harris’ path, but found no gun.
Harris, 35, of New York, had an active warrant for robbery out of New York City.
He was charged with being a fugitive from justice, possession of a weapon, obstruction of justice and resising arrest.
Harris is in the Atlantic County Justice Facility.

Note: The Atlantic County Justice Facility no longer provides mugshots to the media, citing the Atlantic County prosecutor’s order. The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office says it’s part of the Attorney General’s Guidelines. There is no such guideline, according to the Attorney General’s Office, but they have told these offices for years that they should not release any photos that appear to be mugshots.
