Glen Cove Police Solve Three Month Rash of Burglaries
Glen Cove Police Detective Walter Moretto has reported an arrest in the case of a string of burglaries going on for months at an assisted living residence in Glen Cove. Starting in May, employees reported to administrators and police that someone was robbing pocketbooks and lockers of credit cards, cash and personal items, such as cameras and sunglasses. Amounts of money from $45 to $550 were reported stolen, as were employees' paychecks. An assistant administrator at the residence worked hand in hand with Det. Moretto, and, as time went by, the larcenies continued to occur. When he realized the scope of the crime and the large number of complaints, the detective enlisted the help of Nassau County Police, working with Det. Fitzgerald of the 2nd Squad and PO Rentis of the Sixth Precinct. Det. Steven Vetrone of Glen Cove was also part of the investigation.

Teams are comprised of three ladies each. The cost is $10 each week for 35 weeks. As this is a charity league, there is no prize fund and all proceeds go to AHRC (the Association for Help of Retarded Children) in Brookville.
