Long Island Suspect Caught For Midville Caper
Moments after allegedly smashing through the window of a parked vehicle in Middle Village, a Long Island man suspected of committing the crime was caught by police early last Friday morning, Aug. 29, authorities reported.
Reportedly, P.O. David Lewis of the 104th Precinct spotted Conrad Cerisier, 41, of Sunrise Highway in Lynbrook standing next to a black 2014 GMC SUV with a broken rear window parked at the corner of Eliot Avenue and 75th Street at about 6:40 a.m. last Friday.
After being approached, according to information provided by the Queens District Attorney’s office, Cerisier allegedly threw a large object over a fence. Lewis recovered the item: a bag found to contain an illegal police scanning device, officials said.
After searching Cerisier, Lewis allegedly recovered a screwdriver, a black hood mask, a window punch tool and a flashlight from the defendants pocket, police stated.
In addition to smashing in the rear passenger window of the vehicle, the steering wheel had been tampered with and the air bag was partially removed, according to authorities.
The defendant was charged with third-degree grand larceny, third-degree criminal mischief, fourth-degree attempted grand larceny, possession of burglars tools, third-degree unauthorized use of a vehicle, attempted petit larceny and unawful possession of a radio device, police stated.
Cerisier was arraigned before Queens Criminal Court Judge Michelle Armstrong on Friday, Aug 19, according to law enforcement.
He was scheduled to reappear in court yesterday. His bail was set at $15,000 or $7,500 cash bond, it was noted.
