NYPD COP'S A ROBBER: NYPD detective Rafael Astacio caught red-handed after break-in on Long Island

NYPD detective caught red-handed by FBI and cops breaking into Long Island home and is eyed in other New York City capers

Rafael Astacio charged with second-degree burglary after authorities say he and three others broke into Lindenhurst home and busted trying to steal $2,500 worth jewelry from diner owner



THE FBI is investigating whether an NYPD detective has been moonlighting — as part of a burglary crew.

Rafael (Ray) Astacio was caught red-handed after a break-in at a Long Island home earlier this month, and authorities think he works with a team that pulled off other capers in New York City, sources told the Daily News.

The FBI is also probing whether the 14-year veteran committed any crimes or was involved in corruption during his years as a vice cop and sex-crimes investigator, law enforcement sources said.

For now, Astacio, 39, has only been charged with second-degree burglary. Freed on $2,500 on bail, he was suspended from the NYPD without pay a day after his arrest.

Reached at his home in Copiague, L.I., where a shiny black Mercedes C300 was parked in the recently redone driveway, Astacio hung up without commenting.

He was collared June 3 after he and three accomplices broke into the Lindenhurst home of diner owner Anastasios Matheos, according to court papers.

Chicago coppers and NYC coppers united in crime. Sounds like the 004 district.

No, no, no...of course he wasn't involved in anything other than what he's currently charged with. And this is all just a big misunderstanding.

He never tooted lines of blow off the perfectly flat stomach of a 16 year old girl who was a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of her uncle Julio while he digitally penetrated her in some seedy motel room. Never bought her clothes and jewelry with money he stole on raids. Nope. NEVER.

I thought "moonlighting" Coppers were working in the drug trades..
Did this guy think this was a more honest form of corruption?

I know this cop personally and yep, he's more criminal than cop. Dare I say, at the risk of incrimnating myself, that I have, in the past been involved with this maniac. I have since turned my life around,cleaned up, married and found GOD but he hasn't, wow what a shame. A life of bad deeds will always catch up you.

I dont want to incriminate myself, but I was hus partner during his second year on the force. We had a great time blasting hookers and manipulating abuse victims into sexual favors. One time, we sandwiched this half retarded 17 yr old broad with giant titties. She cried so funny when i blasted cum all over her face.

Good times, but that's a younger man's game now.

I'm ashamed to admit that I did nothing to stop it, but I have worse demons in my own closet.

I'm sorry.

This all being posted on here is just straight comical. Who's more of a criminal someone who commits a crime or the person that covers up for someone. It seems to amaze me that so called fellow co-workers/ friends wait to something hits the media to "spill the beans". Grow up! At the end of the day who are you to judge?
