Four Arrested In Binghamton Burglary Investigation
Three Binghamton teenagers and a Johnson City business owner have been charged following an investigation into residential burglaries that happened about an hour apart.
Authorities say 18-year-old Enrique Tramun, 17-year-old Nyquan Williams and 16-year-old Yosef Baker face burglary charges.
Investigators say they're suspected of entering occupied homes early on the morning of July 9. The first burglary happened on Matthew Street on the West Side around 5 a.m. The second occurred on Jutland Road on the South Side just after 6 a.m.
Baker also was charged in connection with the theft of a vehicle from a residence on Robinson Street on the East Side.
Police arrested 27-year-old Tarek Algahaim, the owner of a Johnson City secondhand shop. Algahaim was charged with criminal possession of stolen property and violating a Johnson City village ordinance requiring licensing of pawn brokers.
Investigators say a laptop computer reported stolen from Jutland Avenue was found in the store. Property taken from the Matthew Street residence was recovered from a vehicle registered to Baker's mother.
The arrests were announced Monday afternoon by Binghamton-Johnson City police chief Joseph Zikuski and Binghamton mayor Richard David.
