Disassembled Gun Parts, $25,000 Cash Found in Home Where Yarmouth Police Officer Was Shot To Death

Police searching a home in Marstons Mills where Yarmouth Police Officer Sean Gannon was shot in the head and killed last month found hidden disassembled parts to a semiautomatic handgun, two live rounds of ammunition in a toilet, shell casings in the attic, and $25,000 in cash hidden in a bedroom wall, prosecutors said.

They also found $4,000 in cash on Thomas Latanowich, a career criminal who is charged with murdering Officer Gannon, according to MassLive.com.

Gannon and another police officer searched the home on the afternoon of April 12 because Latanowich had violated his probation. Several officers performed a second search when they found evidence that Latanowich might be hiding behind insulation covering an area of the attic above an addition to the home, prosecutors said.

 “Immediately upon removing the insulation Sgt. Gannon sustained a gunshot wound,” the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s office said in a written statement, according to MassLive.com.
