North Sea Man to Be Arraigned in 'Crime Wave'

District attorney's office says Ronny Lacaliano is responsible for string of burglaries and robberies.

In addition to wanting to send money to family in Honduras, a North Sea man admitted that crack and alcohol were among his motivations for committing four robberies and 12 burglaries in Islip Town since November 2011, according to the Suffolk County district attorney's office.

Ronny Lacaliano, who District Attorney Thomas Spota said is responsible for “a one-man crime wave,” is set to be arraigned Thursday morning at in Riverside. Spota added that additional robbery and burglary charges are likely.

The 29-year-old's last known address is North Sea Drive, the D.A.'s office said.

According to online court records, Lacaliano was arrested by Suffolk County police on March 25. He was initially remanded to jail on March 27. A day later, Judge James A. McDonaugh said he could be released on a $50,000 bond or $25,000 cash, but he was held after failing to post bail.

Specifically, among the charges are first-degree robbery with a firearm, first-degree robbery causing a serious injury and third-degree burglary.

I don't recognize the East End anymore. So many drifters and transients. Very scary for our communities. The social fabric of our country is being torn apart and we are helpless to stop it
