Officers who responded noticed that the pedestrian walking on Jericho Turnpike, Dinesh Singh, 31, also fit the description of a burglar who stole jewelry on July 24 from two New Hyde Park homes, one on North Seventh Street and the other on Lowell Avenue, police said. The jewelry has not been recovered, police said.
