After a two-and-a-half month investigation, Ardsley police said they have charged five suspects—two of whom reside in New Rochelle—for breaking into a home on Bramblebrook Road and stealing several thousand dollars.
The suspects charged were:
- Pamela Zimba, 24, of Yonkers
- Kadeera Moore, 24, of New Rochelle
- Exander Rosado, 18, of Yonkers
- Anibal Rosado, 20, of Yonkers
- Richard Davis, 31, of New Rochelle had been in the Westchester County Jail on unrelated charges, but was also charged in conjunction with the Ardsley crime.
All five face charges of first-degree burglary, a felony.
On April 23, the five suspects allegedly broke into the home on Bramblebrook Road with four family members inside, gaining entrance through a back sliding door and threatning the family at gunpoint for money, police said.
The younger son and daughter were sent to a guest bedroom, where they hid under the covers.
The suspects allegedly stole around $10,000.
According to Ardsley Police, members of the Greenburgh Drug and Alcohol Task Force pointed to Davis as a suspect. Davis had been arrested by Yonkers Police on April 26 with a loaded handgun.
Ardsley Police and the Westchester County DA's Office's Organized Crime Bureau were able to secure several search warrants in the Town of Mount Pleasant and the cities of New Rochelle and Yonkers, police said. During the investigation, thousands of dollars worth of merchandise were recovered; police believe the suspects used the stolen money to purchase them.
The suspects were arrested July 6, arraigned in Ardsley Village Court and remanded to the Westchester County Jail.
Police say additional charges are pending.
Ardsley detectives received assistance from: the Greenburgh Drug and Alcohol Task Force, the Westchester County DA's Office' Orgaized Crimes and High Technology Crimes Bureaus, the Westchester Intelligence Center, The Westchester County Department of Public Safety Crime Scene Unit and the Yonkers and New Rochelle Police Departments.
