YONKERS, NY — May 21, 2019 — Yonkers, NY – Detectives and Police Officers assigned to the Major Case Squad and Pattern Crimes Task Force apprehended and arrested Kevin Jones early this morning and booked him on charges related to the commercial burglaries of two Dunkin Donuts stores and a Subway Restaurant:

On Thursday, May 16th, 2019, at approximately 3:16 AM, members of the Yonkers Police Department responded to the Dunkin Donuts at 1034 North Broadway on a report of a past burglary. Investigation at scene yielded that suspect(s) smashed the front door glass to gain unlawful entry and removed approximately $600 USC from the store’s register before fleeing the scene; door, glass, and register damage was estimated to be $20,000 USC.

On Thursday, May 16th, 2019, at approximately 3:44 AM, members of the Yonkers Police Department responded to the Subway Restaurant at 328 Tuckahoe Road on a report of a past burglary. Investigation at scene yielded that suspect(s) smashed the front door glass to gain unlawful entry but was unable to locate any currency before fleeing the scene; door, glass, and register damage estimates are unknown at this time.

On Saturday, May 18th, 2019, at approximately 3:46 AM, members of the Yonkers Police Department responded to the Dunkin Donuts at 678 Central Park Avenue on a report of a past burglary. Investigation at scene yielded that suspect(s) smashed the front door glass to gain unlawful entry and removed approximately $250 USC from the store’s register before fleeing the scene; door, glass, and register damage was estimated to be $2,200 USC.

Detectives from the Major Case Squad and Crime Scene Unit responded to all three locations, interviewing subjects and witnesses, reviewing surveillance video, and processing forensic evidence. Investigation yielded that in all three incidents the suspect(s) would throw rocks and or kick door and window glass in order to smash the same and force unlawful entry; once inside the premises, they would damage the cash registers and remove the drawers including any currency before fleeing the scene. During Thursday morning’s events, they utilized the services of an Uber driver to travel between locations; several cash drawers were also recovered as evidence, having been discarded along the route. Investigators immediately connected all three incidents and quickly identified Jones as a person of interest. A detail including members from the Major Case Squad and Pattern Crimes Task Force set out to locate Jones and apprehended him early this morning without incident; upon questioning, Jones made admissions to perpetrating the above crimes.

Yonkers Police Commissioner Charles Gardner stated, “The safety of our residents and communities is a top priority for the Yonkers Police Department, and that includes our business community. Let this arrest be a warning to those who would prey on our hardworking business owners, that you will be arrested and held accountable for your crimes. I applaud the efforts of our Police Officers and Detectives in quickly closing-out these three cases.”

Jones, a 57-year-old resident of Palisade Avenue, Yonkers, NY, was arrested and charged on three counts of Burglary 3, a Class D Felony in the New York State Penal Law; he is scheduled to be arraigned later today. The case is being prosecuted by the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office.

NOTE: Booking charges are merely accusations and the defendant(s) are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
