The owner of Fink’s Farm Stand in Wading River caught a burglar in the act early Wednesday morning, police said.
The farm stand’s alarm company alerted police to an activated alarm at the property just before 4 a.m. and notified them that the owner was checking on it, authorities said.
The property owner detained a man, who police identified as David Liss, 43, of Ridge until authorities arrived, according to police. Officials determined that Mr. Liss was taking proceeds from the farm stand, police said.
Mr. Liss was arrested and charged with third-degree burglary and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, police said.
