Jaquan Casserly, 25, was arrested Dec. 5 and charged with five counts of fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.
Police said he was arrested after neighbors allegedly spotted him and an accomplice stealing packages from a doorstep at the Woodgate Village condominium complex. The neighbor was able to detain Casserly until police officers arrived, a news release said.
Fifth Precinct officers recovered a number of stolen items and empty packages nearby, police said. Members of the police canine unit were also able to recover additional items that were discarded in the rear of the condo complex.
Casserly will be arraigned at a later date. Police are still searching for the second suspect.
Authorities said the investigation is still ongoing and ask anyone with information to call Suffolk County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
