WOODBURY - Nassau police say they've arrested two people who are accused of stealing from two homes.

Police say 19-year-old Nicholas Mustakas and 23-year-old Nicole Ottaiano stole items from a home on Singleworth Street in Oyster Bay earlier this week.

They were found to be in possession of stolen items from the home, including jewelry and electronics. The duo had also allegedly broken into the same home back in January.

Investigators say they have also linked Mustakas and Ottaiano to a home burglary in East Norwich earlier this year.

They are facing charges of burglary and possession of stolen property.
