Cops Nab Burglar Duo for String of Lower East Side Robberies
Cops this week arrested two men wanted in connection with a string of residential robberies around the Lower East Side.
Police sources say that officers Guglieimi and Belhouji collared the suspects while inside 170 Rivington Street. The two reportedly acted together on five other apartment jobs, as well, split between both the 5th and 7th Precincts.
Upon arrest, police found stolen iPads in the perps’ possession.
Addresses of all victims were not made public.
Great work by @NYPD7Pct midnight officers who caught 2 career criminals currently on parole.
The officers’ sharp eyes led them to apprehend the burglary duo who broke into a residential building & were also responsible for additional burglaries in the Lower East Side. pic.twitter.com/qrsSp25IOC
