Sixth Squad detectives reported the arrest of a Glen Cove man for a burglary that occurred early Friday morning in a Sea Cliff neighborhood.

According to detectives, an 18-year-old woman heard a car door slam and saw an unknown male flee northbound on Carpenter Avenue around 1:22 a.m.

“The female discovered she was missing an undisclosed amount of US currency from her vehicle,” a statement from the department said. “Officers responded to the area and began to conduct a canvass.”

Police say that Taylor Steed, 24, of 29 Chadwick Street was in the vicinity and “it was determined he was responsible for the incident,” following which he was arrested and transported to the 6th Precinct in Manhasset.

During the investigation, it was determined that Steed was also responsible for a burglary on Marden Avenue in Sea Cliff.  The victim of that incident, a 62-year-old woman, reported a loss of an undetermined amount of US currency and a cellular phone. He was also determined to be responsible for entering a vehicle on Carpenter Avenue. The female victim, 60, reported a loss of “miscellaneous items.”

Steed is charged with burglary, grand larceny, and two counts of petit larceny. He was arraigned Saturday, Nov. 7 in Mineola and is expected to return to court on Nov. 10.
