Congers Man Charged with Setting Ex’s Boot on Fire

congersmanSUFFERN – a 28-year-old Congers man already on probation for a drug conviction was arrested on charges of violating a court order after he went to his former girlfriend’s home in Suffern on Monday, damaged items in her home and even set fire to a boot, according to Suffern police.

Suffern police Chief Clarke Osborn said no one was injured in the 11:30 a.m. incident on Highland Avenue in Suffern.

Osborn said the Suffern woman had obtained a court order mandating that her estranged boyfriend, Sean Nazario of 1 Lamborn Ave., Congers, stay away from her. Police said Nazario went to the woman’s home and did extensive damage to her belongings, including breaking items and throwing bleach on several items of clothing and furniture.

Village police officers found Nazario a short distance from the woman’s home and arrested on charges of violating the existing court order. Osborn said police also learned Nazario is on probation for a drug conviction in Rockland County.

Nazario was arraigned in Suffern Village Court and was ordered held in the Rockland County Correctional Facility in New City pending a hearing on Friday.

Nazario is charged with first-degree criminal contempt, third-degree criminal mischief and fifth-degree arson.
