Local Cops Bust Kentucky Murder Suspect
Officers from the 101 Precinct in Far Rockaway arrested a murder suspect who was wanted by law enforcement officials in Kentucky earlier this week, police sources say.
Dashad R. Eubanks was apprehended while officers were conducting a vertical patrol in which officers search floor to floor in a building, at 22-29 Dix Avenue. "He [Eubanks] held the door for the officers. [Officer Joseph] Picarello recognized him from the wanted poster," said a police source.
In the criminal complaint supplied by Queens District Attorney Richard Brown, Officer Brian Hurley said that the identification of the wanted man was "confirmed by use of a photograph and the defendant's admission that he is Dashad Eubanks."
Police had an idea Eubanks was in the area, the source told The Wave.
Eubanks was wanted for the murder of Jermaine Bibb, 18, who was shot in the Portland neighborhood in Louisville, Kentucky on April 17. Bibb died several days later. Two others victims were wounded in the shooting.
Lajuan Vaughn, 18, and Marilyn Amanda McCloud, 20, have already been arrested in connection with the shooting and have been charged with murder, assault and robbery.
According to a representative for District Attorney Brown, Eubanks "was arraigned on May 12 and he is being held on a warrant by Kentucky for murder, attempted murder, robbery and assault." Eubanks is awaiting extradition to Kentucky. His next court date is set for June 10.
Liquor License Renewal Set
Assemblywoman Audrey I. Pheffer announced that the legislation that she introduced, which requires the State Liquor Authority to develop a standardized form for liquor license applicants, has passed the Legislature.
Currently there is no standardized form for the application for or renewal of a liquor license that is submitted to the local community board for review. This bill will require the State Liquor Authority to create a standard form for submission that will include the information that community boards have suggested would be necessary to review the applications.
