A 24-year-old Riverhead man was arrested on a felony grand larceny charge after he stole items from a vehicle in Calverton early last Monday, county police said.

Aaron Hartmann reportedly removed a laptop, iPad, and sunglasses, together valued at more than $1,000, from a car that was parked on Cherry Street at about 4 a.m., authorities said.

Mr. Hartmann, who was the victim of a hit-and-run accident in Flanders in May, was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, according to a report. He was due back in court Wednesday.

• A 30-year-old Riverhead man was arrested on multiple charges Friday after he was found driving without a license with a passenger who had an order of protection against him — who also ended up being arrested, Southampton Village police said.

Fredy A. Perez, 30, was arrested and charged with third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation about 4:30 a.m., according to a report.

Mr. Perez was later charged with second-degree criminal contempt after police found his passenger, Leida Jessica Leon-Vazquez, 29, of Hampton Bays, had an order of protection against him, authorities said.

Ms. Leon-Vazquez was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, a felony, according to a report.

• Close to $1,000 worth of designer jeans were stolen from an outlet center store Sunday morning, police said.

Four pairs of jeans, valued at $245 apiece, were stolen from Giorgio Armani at Tanger Outlet Center about 10:45 a.m., according to a report.

Police said surveillance video show that a white woman with dark hair who was wearing flip flops, black pants, a blue shirt, and a black-and-white sweater removed the clothing, which was on hangers.

Detectives are investigating.

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 The charges against them may later be reduced or withdrawn, or they may be found innocent.
