ATM theft in Nassau; Suffolk 'Cops of the Month'

Nassau County Police and their Crime Stoppers unit are seeking the public's help in identifying a man wanted in connection with a grand larceny that occurred in South Hempstead.

At about 7 p.m. on Aug. 25, police say a woman accidentally left her debit card in an ATM at the Bank of America on Grand Avenue. The unknown subject pictured above was then seen on video surveillance, allegedly using the card to withdraw money.

Anyone who can identify the suspect is asked to call 800-244-TIPS. All calls are kept confidential.

Suffolk County police officers Francis Munsch and Sean Mahony have been named Fifth Precinct's "Cops of the Month" for January 2010.

On March 26, 2007, the officers learned of the murder of a woman that occurred earlier in the day and that the husband could not be located. Munsch remembered that he had arrested the husband for DWI a few weeks earlier and decided to visit the bar he had been drinking at that night.

They found the suspect unconscious in the driver's seat of a car with a hose running from the vehicle's exhaust pipe to the rear window. The man was arrested and charged with second-degree murder.
