A 16-year-old became the third youth arrested by Sag Harbor Village Police in connection with a string of burglaries last summer.
The Bridgehampton resident turned himself into Sag Harbor Village Police headquarters on Monday. He was charged with four counts of burglary in the second degree and one count of grand larceny in the third degree, all felonies. Following his arrest, the young man was released on his own recognizance with an appearance ticket for a future court date by Sag Harbor Village Justice Andrea Schiavoni.
According to police, the arrest is connected to five separate incidents from June through August 2013 that involved four burglaries and the alleged theft of a 2008 GMC pickup truck that was eventually recovered in mid-July. Items police say were taken in the home burglaries, which occurred throughout Sag Harbor, included liquor, sleeping pills, an iPad, an iPod, and two St. Pauli Girl beers.
In October, police arrested 17-year-old Devon Brevard, who has addresses listed in both Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor, and charged him with eight counts of felony burglary in the second degree, as well as one count of felony grand larceny and four counts of misdemeanor criminal possession of stolen property in the fourth degree.
According to Mr. Brevard’s attorney, Susan Menu, her client pled guilty and was given youthful offender status as well as probation.
Earlier this year, another 16-year-old Bridgehampton resident was also charged in the case, and faces two felony burglary charges.
