Three men are facing a host of charges for a monthlong burglary ring that spread throughout Westchester.
Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr., announced on Friday that Valhalla resident Christian Rosa and White Plains resident Damien Williams have been arranged in Westchester County Court in connection to a string of burglaries in the area that were reported earlier this year.
The indictment alleges that between Jan. 22 and Feb. 21, Rosa burglarized multiple homes in Mount Pleasant, Eastchester, New Rochelle and Scarsdale. Williams was involved with Rosa in the New Rochelle and Mount Pleasant burglaries. Rosa also is charged with possessing stolen property including credit cards from these homes and from a home in Rye.
According to Scarpino, “the indictment was the result of a joint investigation among the District Attorney’s Office and police departments from Greenburgh, Mount Pleasant, New Rochelle, Scarsdale, City of Rye, Eastchester and White Plains who worked together to investigate and arrest these defendants”
“Rosa and Williams committed burglaries of homes throughout Westchester during the day when the homeowners were out of the house,” he said. “They forced entry into the homes and stole numerous items including jewelry, coins and credit cards. In addition, from a home in New Rochelle, Rosa and Williams are charged with stealing a handgun during the course of the burglary.”
Rosa was charged with six counts of burglary, six felony counts of criminal possession of stolen property and 10 misdemeanor counts of criminal possession of stolen property. Williams was charged with two counts of burglary. Both men have been remanded to the Westchester County Jail without bail. They are scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 30.
A third suspect, White Plains resident Vincent Cuccurullo, 32, was also arrested on Feb. 21 by investigators. He pleaded guilty on Sept. 17 to a could of burglary for a burglary in Scarsdale he is charged with committing with Rosa. He is scheduled for sentencing on Oct. 25.
