NYC: Long Island man busted for sex trafficking after fleeing hit-run crash

Long Island cops caught a man wanted for sex trafficking and drug peddling after they cuffed him in a hit-and-run accident.

Rakeem Holland, 27, was nabbed Sunday around 5:20 p.m. after he and Pierre Grace, also 27, tried to run away from a car crash on Station Road near Sunrise Highway in North Bellport, Suffolk County police said.

Grace was driving a 2015 BMW when he smashed into two other cars, said cops. The crash injured two men, who were treated at a hospital and released.

While Grace and Holland were in custody at the 5th Precinct stationhouse in Patchogue, investigators realized Holland was a man they’d been seeking for five months.
