Westchester Police nab fleeing burglary suspects


HAWTHORNE – Three burglary suspects arrested by Westchester County Police on Tuesday as they attempted to flee on the Hutchinson River Parkway are being held without bail at the Westchester County Jail in Valhalla.

At about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday, the Rye Brook Police Department broadcast a description of a vehicle wanted in connection with a burglary that had just occurred in the village.

County Police patrol officers began to check the Hutchinson River Parkway and an officer located the vehicle in the vicinity of Wilmot Road in New Rochelle. Following a traffic stop, the three suspects were taken into custody and transported to County Police headquarters in Hawthorne.

The trio is suspected of committing burglaries in other Westchester communities.

County Police charged Bronx residents Thomas Ricketts, 28, Latiek Frazer, 26, and Omar Willis, 28, with criminal possession of stolen property, a felony, in connection with burglary proceeds found in their vehicle.

Detectives assigned to the Real Time Crime Center and the General Investigations Unit are assisting multiple departments with ongoing investigations into the suspects.
