Police have announced the arrests of two men and a teen in connection with a residential burglary last month in Westbury.

The third person arrested, Mark Washington, 31, of Huntington Station, was arraigned Wednesday on a charge of second-degree burglary and held pending a bail of $125,000, authorities said. He was represented by the Legal Aid Society, which has a policy of not commenting in the early stages of a case.

The other two suspects, arrested with assistance from investigative information provided by Suffolk County police Second Squad detectives, were arraigned on Oct. 24, a day after the burglary took place, Nassau County police said.

Timothy Chapman, 21, of Central Islip, who police said was charged with second-degree burglary, was being held on $12,500 bond or $7,500 cash bail, according to online court records. Online court records indicate Kamoree Richardson, 16, of Lindenhurst, was being held on $10,000 bond or $6,000 bail; Richardson was charged with second-degree burglary, police said.

Police said that at about 10:30 a.m. on Oct. 23, the trio used a ladder to enter a second-story window at a home on Livingston Street in Westbury, cutting the screen and then stealing a floor safe and prescription medication.
