A Long Island man is under arrest, accused of burglarizing a home in Farmingdale.

Police say Wilfi Rosario Rodriguez broke into the home in April, after the 56-year-old female victim discovered her Staples Street home had been entered.

Investigators were searching for a suspect based on a handprint found on a window in the home.

They were able to identify Rodriguez while he was being held at a Suffolk County court on non- related charges Tuesday.

Rodriguez is charged with second-degree burglary.
