They got him. The suspect in five Tarrytown burglaries that took place between Christmas and New Year’s Eve was tracked down and arrested in Yonkers by Tarrytown Police, with the help of the Greenburgh Drug and Alcohol Task Force.

Tuesday afternoon, January 7, German Martinez, 41, was located in Yonkers by Tarrytown Police officers and charged with five counts of Burglary in the 2nd degree (NYS PL 140.25-2), a class C felony. Martinez is also a suspect in a dozen other residential burglaries in Sleepy Hollow, Dobbs Ferry, Yonkers and Greenwich, Connecticut. He was brought back to Tarrytown, arraigned in Village Court and remanded to the Westchester County Jail.

The defendant has been linked to several break-ins on Wildey Street, where on December 31, a resident of a home there managed to catch a photo of a man fleeing to the west. The man in that photo, says Tarrytown Police Chief John Barbelet. “is the suspect we arrested.”

Tarrytown Police Department says: “The investigation is ongoing and anyone that recognizes this individual or has information relating to these investigations is encouraged to contact the Tarrytown Detective Division at 914-631-1514.”
