Port Chester Man Wanted on Drug Charges Arrested After Foot Chase

Port Chester police officer spotted wanted man downtown.

A Port Chester man wanted in connection with a drug investigation that has already led to more than a dozen arrests was spotted in downtown Port Chester and arrested after he led a village officer on a foot chase, according to Port Chester Police.

Todd Fraiser, 43, who has been a resident of Townsend Street, was spotted and recognized by a village officer at about 12:11 p.m. on Tuesday. Fraiser, police said, was wanted on charges stemming from in which Port Chester Police and Westchester County Police joined forces to investigate illegal drug sales on the streets of Port Chester.

When the village officer approached, police said, Fraiser ran off. The village officer chased Fraiser along Traverse Avenue and followed him — and caught him — even after jumping over a fence in an effort to escape.

Fraiser faces a hearing in Port Chester Village Court.

You always have the ppl who don't live in our area (Purdy,Traverse, Townsend, Weber Drive) making comments about something they know nothing about. How about you keep your kids and yourself (Parents-you know who you are) home and stop coming down our way to buy drugs. I am tired of reading "Way To Go PCPD"! They know what is going on and always have. Just when it gets a "little" out of control for them they want to go and get the "Big Dogs from White Plains". Maybe if they stop letting the residents from PC becoming cops in PC this wouldn't be such a big problem. These police officers have to many family and friends in the village so some ppl get away with alot of things including dealing and using. Now let see who Flags my comment inappropriate because its the truth! And for all the people who like to talk down about the ppl who got arrested for selling or using (Because most of them that got arrested are users so the problem has not been solve). How about you look into your own family and see how many of them have been to Saint Vincent's. Being on prescription pills makes you a drug user. Its no different from CRACK.

From: Port Chester Chief of Police Joseph Krzeminski, Thursday, December 27, 2012 15:40 My comment in response to Down Da Way regarding residents who become police officers: Purdy Avenue, Traverse and Weber are not foreign to Port Chester Police Officers. Many of them grew up either on one of those streets and surrounding neighborhoods. ( I am, myself, originally from Purdy Avenue). Instead of letting people get away with things because they have family and friends here, just the opposite is true. Because many of our officers are from here and many continue to live here, they have a direct stake in the community in that they want to make Port Chester a better and safer place to live for not only themselves but for their friends and family. We are interested in protecting the lives and property of the law abiding people in our community throughout the Village. To say those who grew up here and continue to live here and raise families would be less tolerant of crime is absurd.
