A Hempstead man and a North Carolina woman are facing burglary charges after Nassau County police found they forged lease documents and illegally moved into a vacant Uniondale home.

The owner of the Barry Place home, a 53-year-old man whose identity police did not release, found Dwayne Williams, 40, of 11 Clinton C. Boone Place, and Pamela Council, 40, of 113 Cloister Oaks Circle, Winston Salem, living in the home and called police on Friday morning.

The suspects produced a lease agreement stating they rented the home, but detectives determined it was a forgery, police said. The pair had also removed a lock box from the front door and changed the locks, police said.

Both suspects face charges of second-degree burglary. Williams also faces charges of petty larceny and criminal possession of a forged instrument while Council is facing charges of second-degree forgery.

They will be arraigned Saturday morning in First District Court in Hempstead.
