Union County Honors Bains for His Role in Suspected Bomber’s Arrest


Union County Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen and Vice Chairman Sergio Granados present a resolution of thanks, appreciation and congratulations to Harinder “Harry” Bains, the owner of a deli and bar in Linden, for his role in the arrest of suspected bomber Ahmad Khan Rahimi last month.

Rahimi is accused of planting bombs in Seaside Park, Elizabeth and New York City and wounding two officers in a firefight with Linden police.

Bains saw the suspect sleeping around his bar, recognized him, and called police helping put an end to manhunt.
