Man from PA allegedly burglarized stores in Nassau as far as back as 2015

Investigators say Carl Esposito hit businesses in Valley Stream and North Woodmere


VALLEY STREAM — A man from Pennsylvania is facing charges in Nassau County for burglaries that he allegedly committed as far back as 2015.

While it's not quite clear what led to a break in this case, investigators say Carl Esposito of Pennsylvania is now facing multiple charges. These charges include three counts of burglary for three crimes that took place back in 2015 and 2016.

Detectives say Esposito, who is from Scotrun, Pennsylvania, was serving time at a Pennsylvania correctional facility for unrelated offenses when he was arrested this week for the burglaries. In each instance, cash was removed from registers, according to authorities. Police say a subsequent investigation and the results of evidence collected at the scenes linked Esposito to the burglaries.

Police say the first of those burglaries took place on Aug. 13, 2015 at a hair salon in Valley Stream. Exactly one week later, police say Esposito hit up the Quickbite Deli Express, also in Valley Stream, that is no longer in business. It is now the site of an empty storefront.

More than a year after that crime on Oct. 20 of 2016, detectives say Esposito stole cash from Felicia’s Bagels in North Woodmere.

In addition to the burglary charges, Esposito also faces charges that include criminal mischief and petit larceny.
