A West Seneca woman was arrested Monday on burglary and grand larceny charges in a home invasion.
West Seneca Police were sent to a home in which the person inside reported the presence of a suspicious person who had apparently gained entry about 3:30 a.m. while the victim was sleeping. The intruder, who was caught rummaging through a closet when confronted by the victim, claimed that she had mistakenly entered the wrong house and then ran out the back door, according to police.
The victim discovered she was missing $770 in cash and her I-phone. Police located a signal from the phone and found the alleged intruder two houses away. She was identified as Nina M. Depasquale of West Seneca.
The victim’s cash and I-phone were located in Depasquale’s possession and she was arrested on felony charges of 2nd degree burglary, 4th degree grand larceny and 4th degree possession of stolen property.
Depasqaule was taken to the Erie County Holding Center, where she was held in lieu of $5,000 bail.
