Man Pleads Guilty to Greenburgh Home Invasion

Police solve a two-year-old crime using remote computer software.

A Bronx man who forced his way into a Greenburgh home in 2009, tied up the homeowners at knifepoint and proceeded to rob the house has pled guilty to first degree robbery, a felony.

Victor Hernandez, a 27-year-old from Fox Street in the Bronx, will be sentenced Jan. 24, 2013, said Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore.

Hernandez and two unidentified accomplices tied up the two residents -- a husband and wife in their 60s -- before taking off with cash, jewelry, a flat-screen television and a laptop.

The couple's son, a computer professional, had installed remote-use software on the laptop before it was swiped, DiFiore said. Using the software, the Greenburgh Police Department and the Organized Crime and Criminal Enterprise Bureau of the DA's office learned Hernandez had given the stolen property to his girlfriend.

Police were able to view several photos of Hernandez on the machine.

"Advances in computer technology, tenacious detective work... resulted in this serial home invader being identified, subsequently located and indicted for a truly frightening and violent home invasion," DiFiore said.

When police sought out Hernandez earlier this year, they learned he was in a Michigan jail on unrelated burglary charges.

Hernandez had also been incarcerated in Indiana for burglary, and deported twice. A warrant for his arrest was issued on January 23, 2012.

Assistant District Attorney Livia Rodriguez prosecuted the case.

Because too many people are making a lot of money exploiting illegal immigrants and as much as the powers that be talk a good game about securing the border, all it is is lip service. There is no real interest. That is why the USA can't keep him out. It is all about the money.

John Gruber, the story says he was "deported twice" that's how we know he wasn't born here. Why would they deport someone who was born here or a legal citizen? Try reading the story first before making some jackassed comment.

I apologize and take back what I said, I did read it but stopped when I saw it said he was already in jail earlier, I figured they would've already tried to have him deported if he truly was illegal. Again, my mistake
