MIDDLE ISLAND - The intense police activity in the Boston area has some Long Islanders on edge.

Many who have family in the city say they're nervous. Ryan Crean, of Northport, is in Boston for a business convention and says the presence of armored vehicles and bomb-sniffing dogs is definitely disconcerting.

On the other hand, Middle Island resident Erin Donnelly, a student at Boston University, decided to come home because she says she'd feel more secure.

The suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, has since been found and is in police custody.
