Dix Hills, NY - June 24th, 2014 - Suffolk County Police today arrested a Bay Shore couple who attempted to burglarize a home and minutes later burglarized a second home in Dix Hills this afternoon.

Second Precinct officers responded to a 911 call after a female resident of a home on Knox Place saw a suspicious man walking outside of her house at approximately 12:10 p.m.  The man rang her doorbell and when she did not answer, he went to the rear of the home and threw a rock through a window.  The man fled when he was confronted by the homeowner.  While canvassing the neighborhood in his patrol car, Officer Ryan West heard a woman that was screaming from a home on Village Hill Drive.  The female victim was yelling out of a window because an unknown man had entered her home.  When Officer West approached the residence, the suspect fled and a foot pursuit ensued.

Second Precinct Officers, with assistance from Aviation and Canine Section officers, searched the area.  Officers were pursuing the suspect on foot and after approximately 20 minutes, two good Samaritans who noticed the police activity and observed police chasing Munoz were able to detain him on the Long Island Expressway Service Road near Commack Road in Dix Hills.

Second Squad detectives charged Jose Munoz, 38, of Penataquit Avenue, Bay Shore, with Burglary 2nd Degree and Attempted Burglary 2nd Degree.  Munoz will be held at the Second Precinct and is scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on June 24.

During the search for Munoz, officers observed a woman, Yolanda Santos, walking around the neighborhood acting suspiciously.  Investigations revealed that Santos was Munoz’s accomplice and girlfriend.  She was arrested and charged with Burglary 2nd Degree for the burglary on Village Hill Drive and Attempted Burglary 2nd Degree for the attempted burglary of the home on Knox Place.  Santos, 30, also of Penataquit Avenue, Bay Shore, was also charged with Burglary 2nd Degree for breaking into a home on Stonehurst Lane in Dix Hills on Friday June 20.  Santos will be held at the Fourth Precinct and is scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on June 24.

A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
