A Town of Poughkeepsie man freshly paroled on a robbery conviction is in Dutchess County Jail Friday, accused of burglarizing a home, police said.

Julio Ramos, 33, of Snow Terrace, was arraigned on felony charges of burglary and criminal possession of stolen property, town police said.

About 8 a.m. Thursday, police received a report of a man who was looking into parked vehicles and who was seen walking to the back of a home on Violet Avenue in the town. Responding officers found Ramos in the basement at the home, and saw he had some stolen electronic items taken from a car on Creek Road earlier that morning, authorities said.

Police did not detail how Ramos entered the Violet Avenue home.

Police arrested Ramos at the scene. They later found that on Nov. 9, Ramos had been released on parole from prison after a felony robbery conviction, police said. The state Parole Division was notified of the arrest.

Ramos was arraigned Thursday in front of Poughkeepsie town Justice Paul Sullivan and sent to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $20,000 cash bail or $40,000 bond. His next court date is Tuesday.

No information on Ramos' legal representation was on file at Poughkeepsie Town Court Friday morning.
