Police said DNA evidence led to the arrest of a 25-year-old New Cassel man Tuesday on charges he burglarized a deli, a fast-food restaurant and the offices of a neighborhood association last year.

Alfredo Mosso-Hernandez, of 179 Grant St., was arrested without incident near the intersection of Maple Avenue and School Street in Westbury at 9:10 p.m. Tuesday, Nassau County police said.

He was charged with three counts of third-degree burglary, police said, and was remanded to Nassau County Correctional Center on $35,000 bail, or $70,000 bond. His next court date is March 9 in District Court in Mineola.

Police said Mosso-Hernandez was tied to the three burglaries through DNA evidence left at the scenes, but did not detail specifics.

According to police, Mosso-Hernandez burglarized the Azteca Deli on Post Avenue in Westbury on April 25, 2011, breaking a rear window and taking cash, and broke into the Checkers on Old Country Road in Westbury on May 2, again breaking a window -- this time at the drive-through. Police said the third burglary involved Mosso-Hernandez cutting the rear window screen at the Westbury Neighborhood Association on Winthrop Street in Westbury on Dec. 19. Police said Mosso-Hernandez was unable to gain entry to that building and fled the scene.
