ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. --  A pair of burglary suspects were caught Wednesday after making off with hundreds of dollars from the Route 59 Car Wash, Clarkstown Police said.

Police apprehended two men, John Carlos Veras, 21, and Angel Gomez, 22, both of Nyack after a witness called the police department to report they had seen some suspicious people in the area of the business around 10 p.m. The caller knew the business was closed for the day, said Officer Peter Walker, spokesman for the Clarkstown Police Department.

Responding patrol units conducted a search of the building and apprehended the two men inside the building. Both were taken into custody without incident and more than $400 of stolen money was recovered, Walker said.

During an investigation, police uncovered that Veras was a former employee of the car wash, police said.

Both were charged with felony burglary, petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property. Bail was set for Veras at $25,000 and for Gomez at $15,000. They are being held at the Rockland County Jail, Walker said.
