Suffolk police arrested a 30-year-old Saint James man early Monday morning for allegedly burglarizing a pharmacy in his hometown.
James Nicosia Jr. cut a hole in the roof of the Spages Pharmacy on Lake Avenue and stole prescription medications at 4:50 a.m., police said. Nicosia left the pharmacy by smashing the front door, but was caught by a 4th Precinct officer who was responding to the burglary alarm.
Fourth Squad detectives charged Nicosia with burglary. He will be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on Tuesday.
