PAUL SQUIRE PHOTOS | (L-R) Louise Reeves and Roshawn Childress were arraigned in Riverhead Town court Tuesday morning.

A two-time felon and a Flanders woman were caught driving in a stolen car in Aquebogue Monday night, the same day the vehicle had been reported missing from Southampton Town, authorities said.

Police were on the lookout for a black 1997 Toyota Corolla that was taken from a Southampton property Monday, Riverhead Town police said. A patrol officer spotted the car driving out of Milbrook Gables neighborhood in Riverhead about 10 p.m., and later pulled the car over on Main Road.

The car was confirmed to be the one reported stolen and the driver, 32-year-old Roshawn Childress of Patchogue, and the passenger, 31-year-old Louise Reeves of Flanders, were arrested and held overnight.

Both were charged with felony criminal possession of stolen property, police said.

Mr. Childress has been convicted twice before on felony charges, prosecutors said during his arraignment Tuesday morning in Riverhead Town court.

In 2001, he was convicted of attempted burglary and served five years in state prison, online inmate records show. One year after his release, Mr. Childress was again convicted of attempted burglary and served another year and six months in prison.

He pleaded not guilty and was held without bail due to his prior convictions. He is due back in court Friday.

Ms. Reeves, who did not have an attorney present, did not have any prior convictions and was held on $500 bail. She will return to court Wednesday to have a defense attorney assigned to her.

PAUL SQUIRE PHOTO | Authorities say Octavious Rose, 18, ran from the Riverhead police department after his arraignment Tuesday and was tackled into these bushes by a police officer.

A Riverhead teen who had just been arraigned at Riverhead Town Justice Court on a felony larceny charge tried to escape the building by running out the front door, and made  it down the front steps before a Riverhead police officer tackled him into a bush, police said.

The 18-year-old, Octavious Rose, was then taken to the Suffolk County jail, where he was being held on a new felony charge for escaping, authorities said.

Mr. Rose was arrested Monday and charged with petit larceny and fourth-degree grand larceny for allegedly stealing from WalMart, a police source said. He was held overnight and arraigned in town Justice Court on the larceny charges Tuesday morning.

But as he was being led out of the courtroom, Mr. Rose ran out of building — which also serves as police department headquarters — through the front door, the source said. He managed to run down the first flight of stairs, but was caught in the bushes just outside the door by officer Richard Anderson.

He was brought back into court and re-arraigned on a second-degree escape charge, a class E felony. Bail was set at $5,000 cash: $2,500 for the grand larceny charge and $2,500 for trying to escape, court officials said.

Mr. Rose had been arrested before on larceny charges, including once at the same store, according to previous police reports.

On March 7, Mr. Rose — then 17 years old — was arrested at the Riverhead WalMart for petit larceny and unlawful possession of marijuana after stealing from the store, according to a police report. He had been processed and released on $100 bail for those charges, police said at the time.

That case is still pending. He is currently being held in Suffolk County jail on the felony charges.
