A Shirley man who had been caring for two elderly Riverside residents is now charged with stealing and using their credit cards.
Southampton Town Police investigated a March 18 incident at Riverwoods mobile home park on Riverleigh Avenue in Riverside, where they said two elderly people reported that their cards had been used without their authorization.
Following the investigation, police arrested 23-year-old Raymond Obioha on Wednesday at police headquarters and charged him with two counts of fourth-degree grand larceny and two counts of second-degree identify theft.
Fourth-degree grand larceny charges indicate a minimum theft of $1,000 in value, according to state penal code.
An East Quogue man was arrested in Riverhead after an investigation into a stalking incident, state police said Monday.

He is due back in court on May 21. No other details were immediately available.
