Suffolk County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the arrest of a man they say stole from an Aquebogue home in the middle of last month.
According to Suffolk County Police, 23-year-old Christian Fusco took property from a Peacock Court home on Oct. 17.

Suffolk County Police have asked anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
