Shirley Armed Home Invasion Suspects Charged

Two men were arrested for allegedly committing an armed home invasion in Shirley last week, Suffolk County police said.

Jvon Creighton, 19, of Shirley, and 23-year-old Arnell Nash of Riverhead broke into a house on William Floyd Parkway, flashed at least one handgun and stole cell phones from two victims inside shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday, April 12, police said.

Investigators apprehended the suspects 20 minutes later, police said. The victims were not injured.

Both men were charged with first-degree burglary. A grand jury indicted them Monday on additional burglary and robbery charges.

Judge Mark Cohen set bail for Creighton at $150,000 bond or $75,000 cash. Cohen set bail for Nash at $200,000 bond or $100,000 cash. They are due back in court on Thursday.
