Nassau detectives arrested a Brooklyn man Saturday and charged him with the burglary of a Williston Park home the day before as well as two other burglaries committed in the county since December, police said.

Mamuka Bokuchava, 31, of Bay Parkway was located on Cropsey Avenue in Brooklyn and placed under arrest shortly before midnight, Nassau police said. The arrest comes a day after a Williston Park woman noticed a man leaving her Princeton Street home through a window while carrying property, police said.

Police said an investigation also linked Bokuchava to burglaries at a Roselle Street home in Mineola on Jan. 6 and a Lipton Lane home in Williston Park on Dec. 7, in which cash, property and jewelry were taken in both heists.

Bokuchava is charged with three counts of second-degree burglary and was held Sunday on bail of $150,000 bond or cash at First District Court in Hempstead, according to the Nassau district attorney’s office.
