ATM Machine Incident in Glen Cove

On Tuesday morning at 12:10 AM the Glen Cove Police responded to an alarm at the Bank of America 
ATM machine at 202 Glen Cove Ave in Glen Cove. Officer Christopher Paolillo was the first officer to arrive at the scene. Upon his arrival he saw two men attempting to hide in some bushes near the scene. When the officer approached the men, one of the men dropped a sledgehammer and they proceeded to run off in different directions. Officer Paolillo chased one of the defendant’s down Pearl Street, across Sea Cliff Ave onto Glen Cove Ave and into 188 Glen Cove Ave. The man identified as 51 year old Daniel Newton of Glen Cove was able to make it to the third floor of the building and locked himself in one of the apartments. Glen Cove Police surrounded the building and posted officers outside of the apartment. Approximately 14 hours later the defendant came out of the apartment and was taken into custody by the Glen Cove Police. According to Lt John Nagle the police recovered the sledgehammer used, and the surveillance recordings from the ATM which shows the defendant and another yet unidentified man attempting to break into the ATM machine using a sledgehammer. Officer Christopher Paolillo’s actions on the early morning hours should be commended, he confronted both defendant’s and chased one into a darkened building up three flights of stairs without regard for his safety”. Anyone with information regarding this crime are encouraged to contact Lt Nagle or Detective Simmons at the Glen Cove Police Department at  (516) 676-1002.

LATHAM, Mercedes, of Locust Valley, passed away peacefully at home on May 18, 2015. She will be remembered by many, and for so many things. She was a teacher, a designer, a loyal friend, and a loving wife and mother. Her warmth, creativity and enthusiasm made a lasting impact on the many people she touched throughout her life. But for those she leaves behind she will be remembered most for her unstinting devotion to them, for her unbounded love during good times and through adversity. It is rare to encounter someone who finds forgiveness where others find fault; who always thinks of others before herself; who constantly gives, sometimes even more than she can spare; who sees the beauty in life all around her, and all the time – and as Camille Pisarro once said “Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.” Blessed is Mercedes Latham, for she was just such a person.
She is survived by her loving husband of 54 years, John, her daughter Kimberly, son-in-law Jeff Bullwinkel and daughter-in-law Ami Latham. She is preceded in passing by her son John. Mercedes is also survived by her three grandchildren, Blake, Avery and Jack, whom she nurtured and adored. In July, there will be a private memorial in celebration of her life.
