04/22/2010 12:00 AM |

Wayne Miller, 28, whose address is listed as the homeless sex offender trailer at the Suffolk County jail in Riverside, was charged with failure to register as a sex offender last Tuesday. Police say he had been living at the trailer for more than 10 days and had failed to register it as his current address, as required by law. He was picked up at the Central Islip court building and taken back to Southampton Town Police headquarters for booking. It was not clear why he was in court in Central Islip.

Mr. Miller is considered a Level 2 sex offender (Level 3 is considered the most dangerous), as a result of a Jan. 2001 conviction for first-degree attempted sexual abuse in the City of Yonkers, for which he was sentenced to five years’ probation, according to the state sex offender registry.

* Stacey Burmeister, of Hill Court in Calverton was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance early last Wednesday on Lake Avenue in Riverside.

Ms. Burmeister was stopped about 1 a.m. for a traffic infraction while heading south on Lake Avenue when a computer check revealed that she was driving with a suspended license, police said. While she was being arrested on that charge, an officer also found a crack pipe inside a cigarette box she was holding in her hand, police said.

Ms. Burmeister also was charged with having a suspended registration and moving from a lane unsafely, police said.

* Kristin Busby, 41, of Sigsbee Road in Mattituck was picked up on a bench warrant last Tuesday afternoon for failure to appear in court on a prior prostitution charge. She was arrested on the bench warrant at the intersection of Flanders Road and Huntington Lane in Flanders.

Ms. Busby was twice arrested for prostitution in the Riverside area in 2009. Both times she offered to engage in sex for money with an undercover officer, police said.

Those who are named in police reports have not been convicted of any crime or violation. The charges against them may later be reduced or withdrawn, or they may be found innocent.
