Ramapo Police Arrest Suspect Linked to Multiple Burglaries in New Hempstead and Monsey

The Ramapo Police Department recently brought to a close a series of investigations linked to a string of burglaries in the Village of New Hempstead and the Monsey area. Over the past three months, authorities were baffled by five separate instances of burglary, each involving the theft of Tzedakah Pushkas.

Ramapo Police detectives revealed that on three occasions, the perpetrator targeted a building within a cemetery in New Hempstead. Each time, the suspect managed to abscond with proceeds from a Tzedakah box located within the premises. Additionally, the same individual was reported to have entered a shul in Monsey twice, committing similar offenses.

The breakthrough in the case came when the Ramapo Police Investigations Division successfully identified and located the suspect, a 40-year-old male from Brooklyn. His arrest has brought a sigh of relief to the affected communities.

Upon his arrest, the suspect faced serious charges, including five counts of Burglary in the 3rd Degree, classified as a D-Felony, and five counts of Petit Larceny, an A-Misdemeanor. Adding to the gravity of his situation, the suspect was also found to have an outstanding bench warrant for similar offenses in the Village of New Hempstead.

Following his arraignment, the suspect has been released on his own recognizance, pending a future court date. It is important to note that a criminal complaint is merely an accusation.
