Couple Arrested in Connection with Several Burglaries

Press Releases

Suffolk County Police have arrested two people in connection with several burglaries that occurred in the Fifth Precinct since July.

East Patchogue, NY - September 6th, 2013 - Suffolk County Police have arrested two people in connection with several burglaries that occurred in the Fifth Precinct since July.

Fifth Precinct Police Officers Alberto Acevedo and Eric Deprima responded to a call of a burglary in progress at a home on Otis Road in East Patchogue on September 5 at approximately 9 a.m. While checking the residence they found a woman trying to escape through a side window and arrested her.

A further investigation by Fifth Squad detectives determined that the woman, Stephanie Maly, was responsible for seven other residential burglaries that occurred in Bellport, Patchogue, East Patchogue and Medford since July. Maly entered the homes through unlocked windows and doors and stole jewelry and cash. Her boyfriend, John King, would then pawn the items for cash.  Detectives arrested King at the couple’s home, located at 21 Rosalie Place, Patchogue on September 5 at 1:30 p.m.

Maly, 20, was charged with eight counts of Burglary in the 2nd Degree. King, 25, was charged with four counts of Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the 5th Degree.

The Property Recovery Section assisted Fifth Squad detectives in identifying jewelry from some of the burglaries. Maly and King are scheduled to be arraigned today at First District Court in Central Islip.

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