Police arrested a Williamsburg teen over the weekend in connection with the burglary of a local residence earlier this month that resulted in thousands of dollars in stolen cash and goods, but are still looking for a second suspect in the robbery.
On July 7 at around 1:10 p.m., Adrian Carr, a 19-year-old resident of Moore Street, and the still unidentified suspect allegedly entered the backyard of 111 Lorimer Street through a rear gate. They then proceeded to enter the home though the building’s back door. Once inside, they allegedly stole $1,800 worth of jewelry and $500 in cash belonging to the 45-year-old resident.
Police took to social media on July 13, asking for help identifying two suspects related to the robbery. Later that day, Carr was placed under arrest and charged with burglary and criminal possession of stolen property, according to police.
Carr will appear in Kings Criminal Court on August 16, court records show.
