Two men, including a Riverhead resident wanted on an active bench warrant, face a slew of larceny and drug charges after being arrested following a larceny at a Hampton Bays store Sunday afternoon, Southampton police said.

Police said they received a call about 4 p.m. for a larceny in progress at the Macy’s on Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays.

Southampton officers investigated the incident and arrested two men, Darris Reddick, 43, of Riverhead and Bobby Riddick, 45, of Mastic, according to a police report.

Mr. Reddick was charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, petit larceny, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of marijuana, and aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle.

Mr. Reddick was also wanted for failing to appear on a bench warrant.

Bobby Riddick was charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, petit larceny, second-degree obstruction of governmental administration, and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Arraignment information for the two men was unavailable.

The Riverhead resident has been arrested at least twice before, according to previous reports. In May 2011, Mr. Reddick was arrested by state police in Southampton Town and charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

He was also arrested in October later that year and charged with first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, resisting arrest, driving while ability impaired and failure to stop at stop sign, according to Riverhead court officials. His case is still active.
