Two officers were honored with the 102nd Precinct Cop of the Month award Tuesday night for several key arrests.
Officers Rodney Rubert and John Sullivan apprehended two alleged burglary suspects in City Line on June 6, two more in another part of Ozone Park — one of whom was wanted for more than 50 burglaries citywide.
Hank Sautner, commanding officer of the 102nd Precinct, said he believes the latter arrests were made in a situation in which the experienced alleged burglar was teaching the second one.
“This was, I think, training in the making,” he said.
From those four arrests, Sullivan and Rubert discovered more burglaries that were not even reported and their police work helped nab a total of nine alleged burglars, said Sautner, left, who awarded the Cop of the Month honors to Rubert and Hamilton Tuesday night.
