RICHMOND HILL — A 15-year-old Queens boy with an extensive rap sheet was arrested in Richmond Hill Friday night in connection to an alleged burglary, according to a city Police Department spokesman.

The arrest was Juan Gonzalez’s 14th, according to the New York Post, which reported Monday that an unnamed police source said he is also a suspect in up to 25 apartment burglaries in Manhattan’s West Village.

The 150-pound, 5-foot-7 teen was arrested along with his 13-year-old brother, according to the source, and was first arrested in 2005, when he was 11. His second arrest came in 2008, the source said.

He was charged Friday with burglary, grand larceny of a vehicle and criminal possession of stolen property, according to authorities, who said that because he is a minor they are not at liberty to disclose other information about the arrest or whether he is still in police custody.

“He took whatever he could sell,” an unnamed source told the New York Post.
