A man accused in a Farmingdale burglary learned that his handprint landed him in handcuffs on Tuesday after investigators matched fingerprints left at the crime scene, Nassau County police said in a news release.
Wilfi Rosario Rodriguez, 19, of North Amityville, will face a judge Aug. 21 to be arraigned on a second-degree burglary charge.
Police arrested Rosario Rodriguez on Tuesday in connection with a home burglary that occurred on April 22 on Staples Street in Farmingdale. Cops said the 56-year-old female homeowner had reported that her home was burglarized and police dusted the house for fingerprints.
Detectives were able to recover a handprint from a window and identified Rosario Rodriguez “as the person who had entered the home,” a news release said. It was unclear if anything was taken from the house.
Nassau detectives arrested Rosario Rodriguez at Suffolk County First District Court in Central Islip. He was appearing there on unrelated charges of second-degree burglary and third-degree grand larceny.
In that case, according to court records, Rosario Rodriguez, had been arrested on Aug. 14 in West Babylon. His four court cases connected to that arrest remain ongoing. His court appointed attorney could not be reached Wednesday afternoon for comment.
