A Maspeth man who was arrested late last year for breaking into a total of nine homes across Queens at the end of 2016, plead guilty to his crimes on Feb. 14, Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown announced.

Juan Cuervo, 54, of 56th Avenue in Maspeth, hit nine homes in Elmhurst and Flushing between Sept. 15, and Nov. 11, 2016. In each burglary, Cuervo ransacked the residences and stole items including a camera, silver coins, jewelry and cash.

Cuervo was finally cuffed on Dec. 7, 2016, when he was seen attempting to burglarize his 10th home on 80th Street in Elmhurst.

The burglar pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary before Acting Queens Supreme Court Justice Stephanie Zaro. Sentencing has been set for March 17. Cuervo faces nine years in prison, followed by five years’ post release supervision.

“In pleading guilty, the defendant has admitted to brazenly breaking into several homes across a wide swath in Queens County,” Brown said. “The defendant not only invaded the victim’s personal and private spaces, but he ransacked their homes and stole their possessions. The defendant will be incarcerated for his actions.”
