Cops: Brooklyn teen charged in Plandome burglaries

A Brooklyn teen was arrested and charged with two burglaries last month in Plandome, Nassau police said.

Alexander Acosta, 19, was one of two men who entered a Gaynor Avenue residence through a side window on Feb. 25, police said, taking two laptops and assorted jewelry, including a watch.

A short time later, Acosta and the other man went into a residence on South Drive and took a 32-inch television, police said.

NYPD officers in Brooklyn took Acosta into custody Thursday, police said, and he was later turned over to Nassau detectives.

The second man is still being sought, police said.

Acosta was to be arraigned Friday in First District Court, Hempstead, on two counts of second degree burglary.
