Ramapo Police interrupted a burlary in progress Wednesday, leading to the arrest of two Rockland County Men.
Ramapo Detectives, with aid from the Anti-Crime Unit and patrol officers, discovered the burglary after finding what they called a suspicious vehicle parked on Kupperman Lane in Monsey.
Anton Naumkin, 27, of Suffern and Michael Punch, 25, of Pomona were observed leaving 73 Carlton Road with copper and wiring contained in a large bag and a recycling pail. Both men fled when approached by police.
Anti-Crime officers arrested Naumkin on Carlton Road. Punch led police on a foot chase through a wooded area between College Road and Kupperman lane before being apprehended by Ramapo Detectives.
The suspects were charged as follows:
- Burlgary 3rd degree (Class D felony)
- Criminal Mischief 3rd degree (Class E felony)
- Criminal Possession of Stolen Property 5th degree (Class A misdemeanor)
- Possession of Burglar Tools (Class A misdemeanor)
Punch is currently on parole and was remanded without bail. Naumkin, already out on bail in connection with a January 2012 burglary arrest, was remanded on $50,000 bail. The case will go before the Rockand County Grand Jury next week.
