Police: Lake Grove Woman Falsely Reports Burglary She Committed

A Lake Grove woman was arrested on Thursday for burglarizing her landlord’s residence and falsely reporting a burglary to mislead responding officers, police said. 

Sara Hernandez, 25,  called 911 on Wednesday to report that a man was breaking into the main portion of a home, located on Ebzu Court, in which she rents an apartment, police said. 

Hernandez said the man broke into her landlord’s residence before fleeing in a red vehicle, police said.  

Fourth Squad detectives responded with patrol officers and determined that a burglary had occurred, but an investigation into the burglary determined that Hernandez had fabricated the incident and had committed the burglary herself, police said. 

Police did not say what items, if any, were stolen from the landlord's residence. 

Hernandez was arrested and charged with second degree burglary, third degree falsely reporting an incident, making a punishable false written statement and three counts of seventh degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Hernandez also had two outstanding warrants, police said. She was held overnight for arraignment Friday at First District Court in Central Islip.

Hey Matonti, if you think the SCPD missed something, spit it out! Where are they? Sitting on their you know what, Commish.... just a puppet, Capts..... really! If you have a lead for them, put it out there for the world to hear or drop it already, absent having some privileged information you're starting to sound like a crotchety old crackpot.
