Queens Teenager Pleads Guilty to Burglarizing Homes in Valley Stream and North Woodmere

Press Releases

19-year-old expected to serve prison time for series of break-ins.

Mineola, NY - June 5, 2014 - Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice announced that a Queens teenager pleaded guilty today to several Nassau County burglaries – including an incident involving a Valley Stream woman discovering the teen inside her home.
Onyx Arroyo, 19, of Rosedale, pleaded guilty before Nassau County Court Judge Christopher Quinn to six counts of Burglary in the 2nd Degree (a C violent felony), and one count of Attempted Burglary in the 2nd Degree (a D felony). Arroyo is expected to be sentenced to eight years in prison and five years post-release supervision. He is due back in court on July 10.
“By breaking into one home after another, this defendant brazenly violated an entire community’s sense of security,” DA Rice said. “My office will continue our efforts to hold lawbreakers accountable and protect our communities.”
DA Rice said that on June 24, 2013, a Valley Stream homeowner discovered Arroyo inside her home. The defendant ran out of a window and the homeowner called the police. After a 30-minute search, the Nassau County Police Department arrested Arroyo, who was identified by the homeowner.
Arroyo was also found to be in possession of stolen property linked to another burglary that occurred earlier in Valley Stream. The defendant’s fingerprints were also found at the scene of a residential burglary on June 20, 2013, also in Valley Stream. 
After an investigation by police, Arroyo was implicated in burglaries in Valley Stream and North Woodmere on June 6, 2013 and an attempted burglary in North Woodmere on June 6, 2013 and another burglary in Valley Stream on May 31, 2013.
Arroyo took various items from the homes, including cash, electronics, clothes and sneakers.
Arroyo’s co-defendant, Omar Allen, 18, of the Bronx, pleaded guilty to two counts of Burglary in the 2nd Degree and was sentenced in December 2013 to 3-1/2 years in prison for his involvement in the two burglaries on June 24, 2013.
Assistant District Attorney Jesse Aviram of DA Rice’s County Court Trial Bureau is prosecuting the case. Arroyo is represented by Megan Rha, Esq. Allen is represented by Christopher Graziano, Esq.
