Erin Arcese, 38, of Cushing Avenue, was charged with two counts of second-degree buglary. She is expected to face a judge Tuesday for arraignment at First District Court in Hempstead.
Police allege Arcese broke into another home on Cushing Avenue in April and again on Monday. On both occasions, she is alleged to have stolen prescription pills from a cabinet in the home and then fled from the house, authorities said. In total, Arcese collected 45 pills, said police.
