relating to a home invasion robbery.

 

On December 20, 2009 the defendant, who was armed with a knife, along with two unidentified accomplices, forced their way into a house in Greenburgh and proceeded to tie up the husband and wife who were home at the time.

 

The men stole items from the home including a laptop computer.

 

Greenburgh Police were notified and an investigation began.

 

After an extensive investigation involving the Greenburgh Police Department and the District Attorney’s Office, the stolen laptop was located in the Bronx by a laptop remote log-in feature and the defendant identified.

 

Greenburgh Police went to the location and learned that the defendant was in jail in Michigan on unrelated charges.

 

A warrant for his arrest was issued on January 23, 2012.

 

The defendant waived extradition back to New York where he was arraigned today after the indictment was unsealed. 

The defendant was remanded and his next court appearance will be on May 29, 2012.

 

He faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in state prison on the top counts of the indictment.

 

Assistant District Attorney Livia Rodriguez of the Investigations Division is prosecuting the case.
