A Mineola woman who attempted to flee from a North Hills home she was attempting to burglarize on Wednesday morning has been arrested, according to the Nassau County Police Department.

The 6th Squad reports in a statement that around 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, a woman entered her Chestnut Hill home and found a woman inside, putting the victim’s property in a bag.

“As the victim confronted the subject she attempted to flee and shoved the victim,” police said in a statement. “Another member of the residence heard the altercation and came downstairs. Both victims were able to keep the subject under control until police arrival.”

Once officers arrived, they placed the subject, identified as Kimberly Ann Reill, 27, of 38 Raff Avenue in Mineola, into custody. Police said a further investigation found the defendant to be in possession of what is believed to be heroin.

Reill has been charged with burglary in the second degree, robbery in the third degree, criminal mischief in the second degree and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree. She was arraigned on Dec. 31 in Mineola, where she was announced to be represented by Mineola-based attorney Patrick Kauffman. She is next scheduled to appear at the Nassau First District Couty on Jan. 4.
