Two men face burglary charges after Nassau County Police say they broke into a West Hempstead home.
Police were called to a Morton Avenue home at 12 a.m. Friday when witnesses saw two men in a neighbor's yard, cops said. Responding officers found the basement door had been kicked in and a red jewelry box was missing. Two men were seen running toward Oak Street by witnesses.
Jadiel Cruz, 25, and Hector Castillo, 25, both of West Hempstead, were located and charged without incident. The proceeds of the burglary were found.
Cruz and Castillo were charged with second-degree burglary and will be arraigned Friday at First District Court in Hempstead.
