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.
