An Inwood man was arrested late Sunday for breaking into a North Lawrence auto body shop, after police saw him leaving the building, Nassau police said.
According to police, Timothy McCullough, 45, of 86 St. George Place, kicked in the front door of Ojay's Auto Body, located at 259 Burnside Ave., at about 11:45 p.m. Police said while McCullough was inside, he went through several desk drawers and removed several envelopes. Police said the papers inside the envelopes did not have any monetary value.
A Nassau County police sergeant saw the shop's shattered door and saw McCullough leaving the building, and placed McCullough under arrest without incident, police said.
McCullough, charged with third-degree burglary, was arraigned Monday at First District Court, Hempstead, and was held on $7,500 cash or bond. He is due back in court Wednesday.
