A second arrest has been made in connection with a string of home burglaries that took place in New Hyde Park and Garden City Park earlier this year, Nassau County police said.

Magalie Iturra, 39, was apprehended at her South Ozone Park home and charged with three counts of third-degree burglary, authorities said. 

She was due to be arraigned Tuesday in First District Court in Hempstead.

Police said Iturra and Kasheem M. Hill stole jewelry, cash and personal papers from two different New Hyde Park residences on January 31, on White Avenue,  and February 28, on 1st Avenue.

On May 28, the duo allegedly struck again, this time taking cash and jewelry from a Garden City Park residence on Hillside Drive South.

Officials said Hill, 34, also of South Ozone Park was arrested on May 30 when a Third Precinct officer saw him getting into his car on Jericho Turnpike in Bellerose. 

He was found to be in possession of a loaded handgun, a gravity knife and heroin at the time of his arrest, police said.

Hill was charged with three counts of second-degree burglary, four counts of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

He was arraigned the next day at First District Court in Hempstead.
