A home invasion on Fort Hill Lane in Edgemont on a snowy day in December 2009 rocked the community. In no ordinary burglary, the residents, a couple in their 60’s, were tied up at knifepoint while the three intruders stole items from the home, including a computer.
Now, two and a half years later, that computer has lead to the arrest of one suspect, currently in jail in Michigan on unrelated charges.
A press release from the Greenburgh Police on May 9, reports that Victor Hernandez, age 26 of 1070 Fox Street in the Bronx has been charged with robbery and burglary in connection with the incident on December 20, 2009.
In a joint investigation conducted by the Westchester County D.A.’s office and the Greenburgh Police, the stolen laptop was found in the Bronx and lead to Hernandez, now in jail in Michigan. An arrest warrant was issued on January 23, 2012 and the suspect was brought back to New York where he was arraigned on May 9, 2012 and is now in Westchester County jail pending a May 29 court date. If convicted, Hernandez faces a maximum of 25 years behind bars.
