2nd suspect arrested in string of Nassau burglaries

More than two months after police arrested a Queens man, charging him with burglarizing three homes in Nassau, a woman who shared an apartment with him has been arrested and charged.

Nassau County police said Magalie Iturralde, 39, of 122-17 109th Ave., South Ozone Park, was arrested at her home Monday at 11 p.m. She was charged with three counts of third-degree burglary and faces arraignment Tuesday in First District Court in Hempstead.

Her arrest comes 11 weeks after police arrested Kasheem M. Hill, 34, of the same South Ozone Park address, charging him with the three burglaries, which occurred in New Hyde Park and Garden City Park in January, February and May. The relationship between Hill and Iturralde was not immediately known Tuesday.

Police did not define what role investigators believe Iturralde played in the burglaries.

Police previously said that on Jan. 31, Hill broke into a home on White Avenue in New Hyde Park, stealing jewelry, cash and personal papers.

Then, on Feb. 28, police said Hill broke into a home on First Avenue in New Hyde Park, stealing cash and jewelry.

On May 28, police said Hill broke into a home on Hillside Drive South in Garden City Park, also stealing cash and jewelry from the residence.

Hill was arrested on May 30, just after 5 p.m., when police said a Third Precinct officer spotted him getting into his car on Jericho Turnpike in Bellerose. A loaded .45-caliber pistol, a gravity knife and heroin were recovered from the car during that arrest, police said.

Hill was charged with three counts of second-degree burglary, four counts of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Court records show he was arraigned May 31 and ordered held on $25,000 bail or $25,000 bond.

Those records also indicate Hill was remanded.

Hill also is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.
