South Jamaica resident steals couples’ $70K: DA

SOUTH RICHMOND HILL — A South Jamaica man was arraigned last month on three counts of burglary, two counts of robbery and one count of grand larceny after he allegedly entered a home with a currently unapprehended man, tied the couple living there with leather belts to their bed and stole more than $70,000 in cash as well as jewelry, the Queens district attorney’s office said.

Brameswara Adjoa, 28, of 143rd Street near 109th Avenue, allegedly entered a residence on 130th Street near 103rd Avenue June 13 between 1:45 a.m. and 3 a.m., the DA said. Adjoa and the other man then allegedly pointed silver pistols at the couple living there as they lay in their beds and tied them to the bed using leather belts, the DA said.

Adjoa and the other man then allegedly went through the couple’s drawers and closets, the DA said. When they left the couple found $70,000, jewelry and other money missing, the DA said.

Adjoa left his cell phone in front of the residence and when shown it by the police admitted it was his and that he had been near the location in June, the DA said.
