A Brooklyn teen was arrested and charged with two burglaries last month in Plandome, Nassau police said.

Alexander Acosta, 19, was one of two men who entered a Gaynor Avenue residence through a side window on Feb. 25, police said, taking two laptops and assorted jewelry, including a watch.

A short time later, Acosta and the other man went into a residence on South Drive and took a 32-inch television, police said.

NYPD officers in Brooklyn took Acosta into custody Thursday, police said, and he was later turned over to Nassau detectives.
