Two Riverhead High School students were arrested last week in connection with a theft of firearms in Flanders, Southampton Town Police said Monday.

A Flanders resident discovered Sunday that on Dec. 9 someone stole two handguns, a rifle, a Playstation gaming console and $4,700 in cash from his home.

An investigation led detectives to Edward Durham, 18, of Flanders Boulevard in Flanders and Trever Jackson, 17, of Brookhaven Avenue in Flanders.

Mr. Durham was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon Friday, while Mr. Jackson was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property at police headquarters.

Both surrendered at Southampton Town police headquarters in Hampton Bays following the investigation, authorities said.

A third man, Jaquan Lunsford-Bailey, 21, of Greensboro, N.C., also was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon in connection with the same case, and also surrendered at police headquarters Friday, officials said.
