A 44-year-old Riverhead woman was arrested on felony grand larceny charges last Tuesday after stealing jewelry from her ex-boyfriend’s house sometime this past year and pawning it at area jewelry stores, police said.

Sometime between May and August more than $6,000 worth of Tiffany and other fine jewelry was stolen from a Riverside Drive home, police said. Some of the jewelry was later located at two different area pawnshops in Riverhead, police said.

Raquel Mahon, who police said is an ex-girlfriend of the homeowner, was arrested and charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, according to a report.

Ms. Mahon was also arrested in late November for failing to appear in court to face charges stemming from a previous DWI arrest, according to prior newspaper coverage.

• A resident of JT Boulevard reported early Saturday morning that their car had been broken into and about $1,100 worth of electronics stolen from inside, police said.

The resident approached the car about 7:40 a.m. to find the front passenger side window had been broken and a Samsung Galaxy Tab and cellphone had been stolen from the vehicle, according to the report.

The resident had parked and left the car about 1 a.m., police said. Detectives are investigating.

• A Doctor’s Path resident reported that two living room windows were shot at by a BB gun early Sunday, according to a report.

The resident reported hearing a loud noise from the living room about 1 a.m., police said. Two of the resident’s front bay windows, valued at about $250 each, had been damaged by what appeared to be BB gun holes, police said.

• Police are investigating a possible rape reported in the Nadel Drive area, according to a report. Additional information was not immediately available.

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 The charges against them may later be reduced or withdrawn, or they may be found innocent.
