It’s not every day that you read about a chocolate brown mare being spared from a harsh reality.

Bank representatives and police have officially acknowledged that multiple skimming devices were found at TD Bank’s Plainview branch during a routine repair last month — and the acknowledgment has customers livid.
According to investigators and bank officials, on March 9 an ATM repairman was doing routine repairs in the branch at 500 Old Country Rd., when he discovered a skimming device on the ATM in the bank’s vestibule. A second skimming device was found on the card reader at the vestibule’s entrance, police said.
