CORTLANDT, N.Y. – A Cortlandt Manor man was charged Wednesday by Westchester County Police in connection with a Cortlandt home burglary in November.
Antonio J. Lyons, 24, of Terrace Place was arrested at his home at 4:30 p.m. by Detectives Daniel Carfi and David Whitney of the General Investigations Unit. Lyons was charged with felony burglary and several misdemeanors, including criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of stolen property and petty larceny.
County police reported seizing a variety of items from Lyons’ home, including a loaded handgun and items that appeared to be proceeds of other burglaries. Police said Lyons is suspected in a number of car break-ins in the Alpine Road area and in the Lake Allendale neighborhood in Cortlandt.
Lyons is accused of burglarizing a home on Aldar Court when the homeowner was away between Nov. 6 and Nov. 8. Several flat-screen televisions, laptop computers and a jar of coins were stolen during the burglary.
Lyons was charged earlier this month with misdemeanor criminal possession of a controlled substance. Police said he was found in possession of a small bag of cocaine on Oregon Road.
County police are asking residents who live in the Alpine Road and Lake Allendale areas to contact them if items were stolen from their cars overnight in recent weeks. Items taken during the car break-ins include GPS devices, cell phones, small tools, pocket knives and change.
