Three Arrests in Westchester, NY Home Invasion

May 23, 2012

Police say three Bronx men have been arrested in connection with a January home invasion in Westchester County. WAMC's Dave Lucas has more...

Brandishing weapons, the trio burst into the home of a Hastings restaurant owner and tied family members' hands behind their backs. One robber claimed they were the police and flashed a badge.

They got away with about $5,000 in cash.

Hastings Police Lt. David Dosin tells the Journal News that the May 9 arrests were not made public at the time because the investigation is continuing. More arrests are expected.

Richard Vale, Carlos Burgos and Eugene Lorino are being held without bail on charges of robbery and burglary. They face up to 25 years in prison on each felony count if convicted.

The names of their attorneys were not immediately available.
