On April 23, 2012, four of the five defendants, acting in concert, at approximately 6:00 pm, went to a home on Bramblebrook Road in the Village of Ardsley. Three of the defendants, the Rosado brothers along with Davis, who displayed a handgun, entered the home and demanded cash. The home was occupied by three children and one adult. Defendant Zimba, who once worked for the homeowner, was on the phone monitoring the three individuals inside, while Kadeedra Moore waited outside the home in the getaway vehicle.
The three individuals located the home office maintained by the homeowner, and stole approximately $45,000. The suspects secured some of the occupants of the home with duct tape prior to fleeing the residence. The homeowner’s son was able to free himself and call police.
Ardsley Police began an investigation.
Four of the five defendants were arrested on July 6th, 2012. The fifth defendant, Richard G. Davis, was in the county jail at the time on the unrelated gun charge, and was subsequently arrested on July 9th, 2012.
