Burglar Hit 6 Homes in 4 Weeks, Cops Say

An upstate New York man has been accused of burglarizing jewelry from a half dozen North Shore Long Island homes in a recent four-week span, twice hitting two houses in one day.

Nassau County police arrested Spencer Williams on Monday and charged him with six counts of burglary.

Police said the 51-year-old Clifton Park man first broke into two Great Neck homes Nov. 24, burglarized a Thomaston on Dec. 12, another Great Neck home on Dec. 20 and hit a fourth house in Great Neck on Dec. 21, the same day he also broke into a Sands Point home.

Third Squad detectives investigating the case were led to Williams, who was arrested at his home.

He will be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
