Westchester DA Cracks Down on
Recent Robberies and Burglaries
Westchester County District Attorney Miriam E. Rocah has announced a crackdown on burglaries and robberies across Westchester County highlighting a string of felony charges for defendants arrested in connection with recent alleged break-ins and theft at homes and local businesses.
“Ensuring residents feel safe at home or when doing business in Westchester is an important priority for the DA’s Office. The latest indictments and charges for recent incidents across Westchester should send a strong message that my Office and the 42 police departments we work with on a daily basis across this county remain committed to protecting Westchester residents and businesses,” DA Rocah said.
The following case of interest note indictments and arraignments of defendants between January 1 to April 12 of 2023 charged with felonies connected to home or business burglaries and robberies:
Harrison and North Castle police arrested four men, Oscar Dario Nino Franco, 42, Andres Felipe Albarracin Rodriguez, 34, and Jonathan Alejandro Cogua Osuna, 40, on March 10 and Javier Nino-Franco, 44, on March 28, for allegedly using force to enter a North Castle home and stealing approximately $4,000 in coins. Franco, Rodriguez and Osuna were arraigned on March 10 and Nino-Franco on March 28 in North Castle Justice Court on the felony charge of Burglary in the Second Degree. Bail was set for all four defendants at $100,000 cash/$250,000 bond/$500,000 partially-secured bond; after a review by a Westchester County Court judge the bail was increased for Nino-Franco to $200,000 cash/$500,000 bond/$1 million partially-secured bond.
Charges against the defendants are merely accusations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
