ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- A Pomona man was nabbed for smashing the window of a Pearl River business and stealing the cash register, according to the Orangetown Police.
Richard R. Young Jr., 48, was arrested Wednesday for the crime which took place on Sept. 27 at a commercial business on North Middletown Road in Pearl River, said Sgt. Joseph Sullivan.
During the crime, police say Young smashed the front glass door and used a pry bar to remove the cash register from the business, which police did not identify.
Detectives were able to identify Young as a suspect and he was located and arrested on Wednesday, Sullivan said.
Young was charged with felony burglary, a felony, and misdemeanor counts of criminal mischief, petty larceny, and possession of burglar's tools, police said.
He was remanded to the Rockland County Jail after appearing in Orangetown Justice Court.
A check of the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision database shows that Young served time in prison for a burglary in Rockland County.
