Police: 'Reckless' dirt bike, ATV riders traveled from Brentwood to Nassau

Posted: Updated:

Police say a group of dirt bike and ATV riders are wanted for driving recklessly over the weekend. 

They say there were more than 100 ATVs and dirt bikes spotted on various roadways from Brentwood into Nassau County and back around 4 p.m. Sunday.

Deputy Inspector Brendan Forte says the drivers were weaving in and out of traffic, driving the wrong way and driving on the sidewalk at times.

News 12 viewer Rick Antonio says he captured dashcam video of the drivers at the corner of Wellwood Avenue and Route 109 in Lindenhurst.

Some residents in the area say it is is a common happening.

"Every day there's somebody on a quad or on a bike in groups and they ruin traffic,” says Briseda Reyes. “They always pop a wheelie, they always cut us off, and we're always honking but they don't care."

Police released a picture of one of the men taken at the AMF Bowling Alley in West Babylon.

Anyone with information is asked to call Suffolk Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
