EAST MEADOW, L.I. — An alleged drug dealer on Long Island was locked up on Christmas day after crashing his vehicle into a Nassau County police vehicle while attempting to flee from cops, authorities said.

After the crash, detectives were able to take Crombie into custody, at which time they recovered 80 wax envelopes, all of which contained a substance believed to be heroin, police said.

The Copiague man was hit with a slew of charges including criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal sale of a controlled substance, reckless driving, resisting arrest, and criminal mischief, according to officials.

He was scheduled to be arraigned on Monday, police said.
