Man arrested in Great Neck car break-ins

A Mill Neck man who broke into several vehicles and a garage in Great Neck early Tuesday faces multiple charges, including robbery and burglary, Nassau County police said.

Yannick Reboh, 18, of 5 Frost Mill Rd., is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday on charges of robbery, burglary, grand larceny, criminal mischief and petty larceny at First District Court in Hempstead, police said.

Third Squad detectives said Reboh broke into three parked vehicles in less than an hour early Tuesday, beginning with a 2011 Mercedes-Benz on Ascot Ridge at about 4:20 a.m.

He took a credit card from the car and then proceeded to break into a 2004 Audi parked in another driveway on the same street, police said. He also broke into a 2002 BMW parked in the driveway of a home on Amherst Road, police said.

He then entered a parked Chrysler minivan in the driveway of another Amherst Road residence at 5:20 a.m., taking assorted change and an energy drink, police said.

Reboh then entered the garage at the home, where he took two bottles of alcohol, police said. But the homeowner, 40, confronted Reboh, and after a struggle he fled, police said.

In the struggle, the homeowner was able to grab Reboh's gym bag, which police said "contained proceeds from the earlier" break-ins.

Police said Reboh returned and tried to retrieve the gym bag but was unsuccessful.

Reboh was arrested by Great Neck Estates police on Amherst Road without incident, Nassau police said.
