MANHASSET, N.Y. (1010 WINS) -- Police have nabbed three Queens men in connection with a burglary spree on Long Island that spanned more than four months.

The trio began burglarizing homes in Nassau County back on May 12, according to police, who said the men snuck into residences through back doors and windows to steal jewelry, cash and other valuables.

The three suspects -- 30-year-old Brayan Castano, 20-year-old Andres Zapata and 27-year-old Oscar Vera -- were charged Saturday, a day after they allegedly broke into a home in Jericho.

Homes in Old Westbury, Manhasset and Woodbury were also targeted, according to police.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the suspects have attorneys.
