VIDEO: Mangano, NCPD Announce Burglary Arrests

77 arrests made over an eight-week span, including five for Five Towns burglaries.

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Dale reported the arrest of 77 burglary-related individuals in the past eight weeks at a press conference Thursday.

Of the 77 individuals, five were arrested for Five Towns burglaries:

  • for a burglary in Hewlett
  • Justin McNair for a burglary in Hewlett
  • for a burglary in Cedarhurst
  • for a burglary in Cedarhurst
  • Maria Pretino for a burglary in East Atlantic Beach

According to police, statistics indicate that overall major crime is down approximately 10 percent since Mangano took office. In that time, residential burglaries are up by less than 1 percent.

In the first seven weeks of 2012 (up to Feb. 13), there were 218 burglaries in Nassau County, according to police. This is significantly higher than the 100 in that time period last year, but is close to the 216 that were reported in 2010. Police have made 49 burglary arrests in that span in 2012 (as of Feb. 13), up from 33 in 2011.
