Police: Ex-Employee Charged with Burglary, Robbing Shrub Oak Store Multiple Times

Yorktown police said Michael Rozanski, a Cortlandt Manor resident and former employee at Lakeland Wine and Liquors, robbed the store multiple times this year and stole a large amount of cash.

The following information was provided by the Yorktown Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

A 32-year-old Cortlandt Manor man, who was arrested for the second time this year, is facing multiple counts of burglary for breaking into a Shrub Oak liquor store and stealing cash, Yorktown police said.

Michael Rozanski, a former employee at Lakeland Wine and Liquors, became the suspect of a Nov. 4 burglary, police said. The man had entered the building around 9:30 p.m. and stolen "a large amount of cash," police said. 

Investigation of the incident continued and police revealed Rozanski entered the store on Aug. 19 at about 3:25 a.m. and again on Aug. 22 at about 1:35 p.m. Both times he stole a large amount of cash, police said. They did not say how much money in total the man had stolen.  

Yorktown detective Lewis continued the investigation and after being unable to locate Rozanski, he applied for arrest warrants from the Yorktown Town Court. 

Police said they received a tip on Nov. 27 that Rozanski was in New York City. With the assistance of NYPD officers the man was located in the Bronx on Nov. 29. He was arrested and transported to the Yorktown police department where he was processed on the burglary charges. 

Rozanski was charged with three counts of third-degree burglary, a felony.

He was then remanded to the Westchester County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail. The man was scheduled to appear in Yorktown Town Court on Dec. 20.
