Plainville bank robbery suspect arrested on unrelated charges following police standoff in Newington


NEWINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) — Police arrested a suspect from a bank robbery in Plainville who was involved in a standoff with officers in Newington for several hours Thursday night.

Police reported a robbery took place at Liberty Bank on East Street in Plainville Thursday afternoon. Plainville Police tracked the suspect, 49-year-old David Latino of Southington, from Plainville to the Carrier Motor Lodge Motel on the Berlin Turnpike in Newington.

Plainville officers contacted Newington Police for assistance around 4:30 p.m. and located Latino’s room in the motel. As officers approached, police said Latino opened the door and upon seeing them, quickly shut it.

Police determined there was a woman in the room with him and established a perimeter. After a few hours of negotiating with Latino, police said the woman was allowed to leave the room. Negotiations continued and police were concerned Latino might have been experiencing a medical emergency.

Emergency Response Team members entered the room and found Latino unconscious, police said. He was taken to Hartford Hospital for treatment and upon his release Friday, charged with kidnapping in the second degree and interfering with a police officer.

Plainville Police said they are in the process of securing an arrest warrant for Latino for the bank robbery. He has not been charged in connection to the robbery at this time.

His bond was set at $250,000. He appeared in court in New Britain Friday.
