Bank Robbers Busted

A recent string of robberies had Nassau and Suffolk county police working together to catch the culprits. And now they've succeeded, say authorities.

 

According to detectives, at approximately 5:51 p.m. on Jan. 28, 18-year-old Adam Baron of Melville entered the Chase Bank on Main Street in Farmingdale and handed the teller a demand note. After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, Baron fled the bank.

 

Five employees and five customers, none of whom were injured, were present during the time of the robbery and identified the perpetrator. The eyewitnesses informed police that the suspect was  6 foot 2 inches tall, wearing dark clothing, a mask covering his face and gloves. Police could not identify if the assailant was armed, as of press time. 

 

The next day, Nassau County investigators, working in conjunction with the Suffolk County Pattern Crimes Unit, arrested Baron and his alleged accomplice, Jamie Ramirez, in the parking lot of the Avalon Apartments complex, where they live. 

 

Baron has been charged in connection with five other bank robberies that occurred in Westbury, Rockville Centre, Plainview and Merrick. Although Ramirez, 25, was not apprehended in connection with the robberies in Rockville Centre and Farmingdale, he was charged in connection with the robberies in Plainview and Merrick. He was also apprehended for a bank robbery in North Bellmore on Jan. 17. 

 

Both men were arraigned at the first district court in Hempstead on Jan. 30. Baron has been charged with five counts of robbery in the second degree and one count of attempted robbery. Ramirez has been charged with two counts of robbery in the second degree, third degree, and attempted robbery. 

News

At a recent meeting of the Farmingdale Board of Education, school district superintendent John Lorentz discussed New York State’s proposal to invest $2 billion into districts statewide

through the Smart Schools Bond Act.

 

If approved by voters in the upcoming general elections, the act would allow the state to borrow $2 billion in the form of a capital bond to provide students with access to classroom

technology and high-speed internet connectivity, with the goal of equalizing opportunities for children to learn, adding classroom space, expanding pre-kindergarten programs, replacing classroom trailers with permanent instructional space and installing high-tech security features in schools. 

Over the weekend, thousands of Long Island residents flocked to the Village of Farmingdale for its 26th annual Columbus Day Weekend Fair and Fireman’s carnival. Running from Oct. 9

to 13, the five-day affair featured live music from Farmingdale’s own Electric Dudes and Long Island party band Superbad, a Fire Department barbecue, food vendors, a street fair, fireworks, carnival rides, games for kids of all ages and, of course, the Columbus Day parade.

The 2014 Reilly Cup finals featured the two most successful OTHG teams over the last 9 years. Sal’s Place and Singleton’s have had 11 finals appearances and 7 championships between them during this period of time. They split 2 games during the regular season and Singleton’s became the winner’s bracket representative in the 2014 Cup by beating Sal’s deep in the tournament.

 

Sal’s took the first game 14-7. The game was close until the 8th inning when Sal’s broke it open with some timely hits and taking advantage of a Singleton’s miscue or two.  Sal’s held

Singleton’s to 7 runs with outstanding all-around defense, which was particularly impressive given that some of their significant contributors were visibly fighting through late-season injuries.
