A 28-year-old serial burglar has been sentenced after admitting to a string of burglaries in Westchester last summer.

Cortlandt Manor resident Julian Montgomery has been sentenced to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to three counts of burglary last month following a string of burglaries in and around Greenburgh.

Last summer, a series of burglaries were reported in Ardsley and Edgemont, prompting an extensive police investigation. Scarpino said that investigators found several similarities in each of the burglary incidents and discovered that the same vehicle was seen near multiple crime scenes throughout the area.

Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr. said that investigators were able to track Montgomery’s car, leading them to a New Castle residence on Sept. 18 last year. Upon arriving at the scene, Montgomery was spotted running from the residence with a bag of jewelry in his hand and he was subsequently arrested.

Further investigation at Montgomery’s home, his vehicles and a rented storage unit led to the recovery of stolen property that was identified from several burglary victims throughout the county.

According to Scarpino, Montgomery was found to have committed no less than 15 burglaries in Greenburgh, New Castle, Bronxville, Pleasantville, Ardsley, the Town of Mamaroneck, the Village of Mamaroneck, Rye Brook, Scarsdale and Tarrytown.
