Police say that two Queens residents were responsible for a number of thefts last week in Mineola.
Tyree Stewart, 30 and Jacqueline White, 26 of Rosedale were charged with three counts of petit larceny and two counts of criminal possession of stolen property following an afternoon spree through the village.
Shortly after 1 p.m. last Tuesday, police said, the two removed several packages delivered to homes on Latham Road, Laurel Drive and White Road.
Police were alerted when a Latham Road residence reported the larceny. A description of the vehicle used was relayed to officers, and an officer placed the two suspects into custody following a traffic stop on Latham Road.
Detectives conducted an investigation with the help of video surveillance and a Ring doorbell system to determine that Stewart and White were responsible, police said.
Their first court appearance is set for Jan. 18. Police were able to recover and return several packages belonging to the victims.
Efforts to reach representatives for the defendants were unavailing.
