Peifer Comments on Frein’s Capture
HONESDALE – Rep. Mike Peifer (R-Monroe/Pike/Wayne) issued the following statement in response to the capture of Eric Frein:
“It is a great day in the Pocono region. After nearly seven weeks of uncertainty, fear and frustration, the people of Monroe and Pike counties are waking up this morning knowing that this evil man has been captured and will soon be brought to justice.
“I want to commend everyone in the law enforcement community for their diligence and determination in finding Frein. I thank our citizens for their vigilance and their patience during this difficult time, and a special thanks goes out to all of the nonprofit organizations and volunteers who supported police during this prolonged search.
“It is my hope that we can now begin the healing process and restore that sense of safety and security we all took for granted before this senseless act occurred. My prayers remain with the family of Corporal Bryon Dickson and with Trooper Alex Douglass and his family as well.”
