Woman charged with stealing $2K worth of items

RemsenRoadA 20-year-old Ridge woman was arrested after stealing more than $2,000 worth of cash, jewelry and electronics from a Riverhead residence last December, Riverhead Town Police said.

Corey Fuerderer was arrested Feb. 27 and charged with second-degree burglary, a felony, police said.

Sometime between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 5., Ms. Fuerderer allegedly entered a rear door of a Remsen Road home and removed an Xbox 360, videogames, jewelry, an I-pod touch, brand name pocketbooks, a Gateway laptop, a small safe, and cash from the home, authorities said. The stolen items totaled $2,261, according to a report.

The lock to the rear door had been broken prior to the incident, police said. The family had been using a chair to secure it, a report said.

Police did not say if anyone else was involved or if Ms. Fuerderer knew the owners of the home.

Ms. Fuerderer was arraigned and is being held on $36,000 bail at Suffolk County Correctional Facility, officials said.
