Two Men Allegedly Break Into 30 Cars in Pelham

PELHAM MANOR, N.Y. – Pelham Manor police arrested John P. Manfredi Jr., 18, of 5 Manger Circle in Pelham and Julian A. Horrabin, 19, for breaking into approximately 30 cars early Thursday morning.

Police charged them with fourth degree grand larceny, fourth and fifth degree criminal possession of stolen property, petty larceny and trespassing.

Officers responded to a call from Oak Lane shortly after 3 a.m. Thursday that the two men had just entered a nearby car and took items from inside of it. The two fled toward Washington Avenue as the police drove to the scene.

Police found them on Oak Lane near Clay Avenue, stopped them and questioned them. The two began to sweat and seemed nervous and uncomfortable, according to the police blotter. They then said to the officers, "OK, OK, you got us."

They told police they had broken into the car on Oak Lane. Officers found GPS devices, iPods, laptops, credit cards and money when they searched the two men. Manfredi had several of the items in a black backpack.

Police arrested the two. As officers put them in the police car, they said, "We are sorry. We want to cooperate."

They told police that they started their spree at midnight and said they would show the officers each of the cars they robbed. They pointed out the specific vehicles to the officers and told them what they took from each one.

They also admitted to an earlier larceny that had occurred on James Street.

Police contacted victims to identify their belongings, and some went to the police station to do so.
