The Eagle Has Landed...in Good Hands
For the past few weeks, Glen Covers have spent a lot of time looking up, literally, in hopes of spotting the young American bald eagle who had decided to pay a visit to our fair city. First reported spotted in the area around the Staples Shopping Center, he (experts feel "ninety nine percent sure" the bird is male based on size and weight) has fascinated shoppers, children, shopkeepers and Audubon members and birdwatchers who perched in the parking lot, hoping for a glimpse.
Police Nab Man with Spray Paint and Machete
On his second patrol around St. Patrick's Church in Glen Cove the night of Saturday, Aug. 28, Officer David Sucharski happened to notice graffiti on the wall that hadn't been there minutes before when he made his first go-round. He also spotted a man standing near the front wall of the church. Officer Sucharski and Officer David Leon stopped to speak with the 22-year-old Glen Cove man and observed that his hands were wet with paint and he had a spray paint can sticking out of his pocket. On further investigation while the man was being placed under arrest for the act of vandalism, the officers recovered a 27-inch machete concealed inside of the man's pants, rigged up and hooked to his belt and running down the inside of his pant leg. The defendant was also found to have an unrelated prior felony conviction and was consequently charged with the more serious crime of felony weapons possession along with the graffiti charge. He is also being questioned in prior graffiti crimes. If convicted, the man faces two-and-a-half to seven years in prison.
