A car chase and foot pursuit of a bank robbery suspect that involved a half-dozen police agencies Monday was an example of good interagency cooperation, Wolcott’s police chief said Tuesday.

No one was hurt after the police pursuit through four towns and cities and foot chase through woodland and a river near the Naugatuck-Beacon Falls line, some 20 miles from the robbery in Southington. David Latino, 44, of Naugatuck was arraigned Tuesday on charges of second-degree robbery, fourth-degree larceny, reckless driving and engaging in pursuit in Superior Court in Bristol, where his bail was reduced to $200,000, a court clerk said.

It was only through the good working relationship of police from Southington, Wolcott, Waterbury, Naugatuck and Seymour, and troopers from the state police that the arrest was possible, Wolcott Chief Edward Stephens said Tuesday. Police had help from gadgets, too, including tire-puncturing protrusions and a GPS tracking device.

“This shows the way agencies cooperate with one another and get the job done,” Stephens said.
