(Long Island, NY) Nassau County police have arrested a Uniondale man for two burglaries that took place on Wednesday afternoon in Levittown.
According to detectives, a 57-year-old male victim saw the defendant Mitchell Eduardo Alfaro Berrios, 22, of Midwood Street, attempting to push in the rear window of his Elm Drive South residence. The victim confronted Berrios who fled the scene on a bicycle taken from the victim’s home.
Second Precinct Police Officers responded to the area and located the defendant a short time later in the rear yard of a Charles Lane home. Berrios was placed under arrest without incident.
The investigation determined that the defendant had also entered a home on Turn Lane earlier in the day and removed an I-Phone, a phone charger, ear buds, and a gold watch. The items, along with the defendant’s passport, were discovered in a knapsack Berrios had left at the Elm Drive residence.
When arrested Berrios was in possession of a glass cutter tool used to cut the windows. All proceeds were recovered and no injuries were reported.
Berrios is charged with two counts of Burglary 2nd degree and one count of Possession of Burglar Tools.
He will be arraigned today, Thursday, July 11, 2013 at First District court in Hempstead.
