YONKERS, N.Y. – A Yonkers teen has been arrested in connection with a trio of burglaries that police believe may be part of a larger crime spree in the Bronx and the city’s southwest side.

Yonkers police charged Aaron Hairston, 18, of 146 Hawthorne Ave., with three counts of second-degree burglary, a felony.

Hairston was charged in connection with burglaries on Leighton Avenue, Ellsworth Avenue and Wingate Place, crimes authorities said fit into a pattern of break-ins that stretch back to January.

Since then, there has been many as seven reported thefts in the city and several more in the bordering 50th Precinct of the Bronx, police said.

Earlier this month, the Riverdale Press reported as many four incidents in North Riverdale and three in Yonkers during a one-week span in March.

In one instance, a laptop stolen from a Bronx home was equipped with LoJack theft prevention software and led the NYPD to a Yonkers man, the report said. When officers found the man, he told police he bought the laptop from two men on South Broadway.

New York City police said they believe the incidents are related because all occurred after midnight while the residents were asleep, according to the report .

On March 22, Yonkers police offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible.

Detectives in both cities have been working closely together to find the culprit, Yonkers police said Friday.

Police said the investigation remains active and ask anyone with information to contact the Detective Division at 914-377-7724. Anonymous tips can also be sent to the tip411 anonymous texting program - text “ypd” + your tip to 847411.
