New York sheriffs stop first out-of-state bus: law enforcement source


MANHATTAN – New York sheriffs stopped their first out-of-state bus on Thursday evening, a police source said.An Atlanta Greyhound bus that made stops along the way was pulled out of the Lincoln Tunnel around 10 p.m. Thursday, the source said.

The bus was heading towards the port authority.

This is the first bus stopped by the city sheriff’s officers as they enforce the New York State travel order, according to a police source.

No tickets were distributed, but about half of the passengers were asked to complete a traveler form. The other half told authorities they boarded the bus in New Jersey, the source said.

The shutdown, which took less than 30 minutes, comes as the New York Sheriff’s Office haspatrols on city bridges and tunnels under the orders of Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Last Friday, the agents issued their first notices to a driver and passenger who traveled to South Carolina and refused to quarantine.

Further patrols are expected this weekend.
