New York - Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez today announced that a 50-year-old Brooklyn man was arraigned on two separate indictments for allegedly committing a string of six burglaries in Borough Park in September and October 2018, including breaking into two synagogues and a religious school.
District Attorney Gonzalez said, “This defendant is allegedly a professional burglar whose crime spree violated the sanctity of religious institutions, among other places, from which he stole cash and religious items. We will now seek to hold him accountable.”
The District Attorney identified the defendant as Charles Cajigas, 50, of Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. He was arraigned yesterday before Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice William Miller on two indictments in which he is charged with third-degree burglary, fourth-degree grand larceny, petit larceny, criminal trespass and other charges. He was ordered held on $75,000 bail and to return to court on January 11, 2019.
The District Attorney said that, according to the investigation, the defendant was charged in connection with the following incidents:
