POLICE BLOTTER Riverhead Town

05/11/2011 10:32 AM |

An Eastport woman reported to Riverhead Police that a pit bull and a terrier killed her mother’s cat while the animal was outside the mother’s Parkway Street house in Riverhead Monday. A man who lives on nearby Hamilton Avenue also told police he believes the same two dogs had killed a chicken in his neighbor’s chicken coop about the same time there were chicken feathers in his driveway. A chicken carcass was never found.

The owner of the dogs, who was not ticketed in the ordeal, turned the canines over to animal control. The incident occurred about noon.

• A Riverhead man was arrested Monday after he was found with powdered cocaine on him, authorities said. Town police said 27-year-old Carlos Sinay was found to be carrying the drug at the Citgo gas station on West Main Street about 3 a.m. He was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

• Shoyn Johnson, 26, of Riverhead was arrested at the Saks Fifth Avenue store at the Tanger Outlet Center Sunday and charged with criminal possession of burglar’s tools and petit larceny. The arrest happened about 6 p.m. No additional information was available.

• George Francis, 27, of Riverhead was arrested last Thursday after he was found with crack cocaine on him, town police said. He was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

• Marcellus Hudson was arrested last week after he was found sleeping in the basement of a woman who had previously secured an order of protection against him, police said.
Mr. Hudson was charged with second-degree criminal contempt, authorities said.

• Two small bags of marijuana were found at Riverhead High School in two separate incidents last week. The first bag was discovered last Tuesday about 3 p.m. The other was found about noon Friday. No charges have been filed.

• Riverhead Police responded Friday after a van caught fire in the parking lot of the Gulf gas station on Route 25, just next door to the Riverhead Charter School. Riverhead firefighters were on the scene and they quickly extinguished the flames. Police said the 2 p.m. fire appeared to be electrical in nature. The driver of the van was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries, police said. No passengers were in the van.

Those who are named in police reports have not been convicted of any crime or violation. The charges against them may later be reduced or withdrawn, or they may be found innocent.

  • Those who want to mark this historic event, should do it at no charge to the taxpayers. In other words, work that day for free. ! Give me a break, $ 300 may not seem like a lot of money, but I just looked my community and see dozens of houses up-for-sale. We can’t keep funding all these “feel-good” moments! Monday is a work day, Not Sunday

  • PATRICIA E DDINGTON OVER STEPPED HERE BOUNDS WHEN SHE KNEE JERKED THE BOARD IN TO AGREEING TO OPENING THE TOWN HALL FOR GAY MARRIAGES. WOULD THEY HAVE DONE IT FOR HETEROSEXUAL MARRIGES? PATRICIA EDDINGTON REPRESENT ALL OF BROOKHAVEN NOT THE GAY COMMUNITY. NOT ALL OF BROOKHAVEN AGREE TO GAY MARRIGAES. MARK LESKO SHOULD CANCEL THIS WEEKEND EVENT AS BEING PREFERRENTIAL TO A CERTAIN SEGMONT OF THE BROOHAVEN COMMUNITY. I WILL NOT ACCEPT PATRICIA EDDINGTON WANTING T O PAY(RE-IMBURSE) THE BILL FOR THIS TO TAKE PLACE.

  • Lets do the math. $300 for a marriages…..The clerks office wil be open for three hours. Each marriage certificate is $40.00….four marriages an hour..times 3 hours times $40 equals…$480……wow a profit of $180….I support be open on Sunday to perform the marriagess..

  • Don’t forget the staff on hand on a regular basis who now have move and usher these people, friends and families. When usually all they to do is to look after the place. They will also now have an additional responsibilty all for the” feel good time” for Patricia Eddington private citizen using town property. Nice job Supervisor and board members who approved the Town bein open on a weekend day. SHAME,SHAME on you for caving in.

  • I understand Patricia Eddington read a long letter or article pertaining to the law when white and black people were forbidden to intermarry and disturbingly like so many of same sex marriage advocates placed interracial marriage in the same category as same sex marriage.

    This is flawed thinking simply because same sex couples do not have the proper biological parts to reproduce children and make marriage covenant. Reproduction is the cornerstone of the definition of marriage.

    This is the same flawed thinking that promotes the murder of little children while in the mother’s womb. The definition of murder is “premeditated” action

  • Some how people (Patricia Eddington) will find a way too play “THE RACE CARD” when their position is weak. How desparete was that. She was wearing a colorful dress though, I will give her that.
