YORKTOWN, N.Y. - A 66-year-old New Jersey man has been charged with burglarizing and causing damage to two Yorktown businesses, according to the Yorktown Police Department.
Around 9:44 p.m. Wednesday, the owner of Angel Face Spa reported to police that she witnessed on surveillance video a man enter her store located at 322 Underhill Ave. Officers responded and arrested Steven Searcy of Union City as police say he was fleeing the scene. Police allege that Searcy resisted arrest, possessed burglar tools and broke a window to gain entrance.
The next morning around 7:47, the owner of Westchester Health, also located at 322 Underhill Ave., told police that she noticed pry marks on the front door, an open rear window, and that her office had been ransacked.
Searcy, already at Yorktown police headquarters as a suspect in the Angel Face Space burglary, was also charged with burglarizing Westchester Health. He faces two counts of third-degree burglary (D felony), two counts of third-degree criminal mischief (E felony), one count of possession of burglar's tools (A misdemeanor) and one count of resisting arrest (A misdemeanor). He was remanded to Westchester County Jail without bail.
