One of the two men arrested this week after turning himself in for an alleged robbery outside the Riverhead DMV was arrested again Friday on a bench warrant from Southampton Town Justice Court, police said.
Bobby Riddick, 46, of Middle Island was charged at the Suffolk County Jail in Yaphank where he is being held on robbery charges for mugging a man near the DMV and taking $300 from him Monday. Mr. Riddick is also being investigated in connection with other robberies in the area, according to Riverhead police chief David Hegermiller.
The bench warrant he was arrested for Friday was issued for failure to pay a fine, Southampton Town police said. In July 2012, Mr. Riddick was charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, petit larceny, second-degree obstruction of governmental administration, and unlawful possession of marijuana after he was caught stealing from Macy’s in Hampton Bays, police said at the time.
