A 23-year-old homeless woman is charged in a string of burglaries on Long Island.

Police say Shamasia Moore is behind at least five incidents in the Nassau County town of Hempstead.

Moore is accused of stealing jewelry and electronics from the homes over the last two months.

The burglaries happened at homes on Lindent Street, Woodfield Road, Lincoln Avenue, Mulberry Land and Hempstead Gardens Drive. A sixth attempt on Collins Lane reportedly ended when a home alarm was triggered.

Moore is charged with five counts of second-degree burglary and one court of second-degree attempted burglary.
