Teens busted after Flanders house parties

Flanders break-ins, parties

Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this report incorrectly stated Bhavesh Hasarafally was arrested at a Huntington Lane home. He was arrested at his own house. The News-Review regrets the error.

A 17-year-old was arrested Saturday for breaking into a Flanders house and throwing a party there, before breaking into a second home for another party, Southampton Town police said.

Bhavesh Hasarafally of Flanders is also accused of stealing items from the second house, police said. A second teen was also arrested for trespassing after he was caught at the second party by the house’s caretaker Friday night, police said.

According to police reports, Mr. Hasarafally initially entered a Peconic Trail house, where police said he broke through a bathroom window Friday night to party. He then took the party to a Huntington Lane home, police said.

While inside the Huntington Lane house, Mr. Hasarafally allegedly stole a camera lens and medication, police said. Partygoers also damaged the house’s furniture, carpets and window screens, the report reads.

Mr. Hasarafally was arrested by police at his Flanders home Saturday.

He was charged with second-degree burglary, second-degree criminal trespassing, and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

He was held for a town Justice Court arraignment.

It was not clear how police tracked down Mr. Hasarafally Saturday and connected him to the alleged incidents.

In the other arrest, the caretaker of the Huntington Lane home said he got a call from the homeowner to check on the house, as people had been known to host parties there. The man got to the house and saw 19-year-old Trever Jackson of Flanders standing on the back patio with two beer bottles in his hands, according to police reports.

The caretaker noticed the back door was open and that someone had held a party at the house.

He grabbed Mr. Jackson and held him until police arrived. Mr. Jackson was arrested and charged with second-degree criminal trespassing, police said. He was taken to police headquarters and given a ticket with a later court date, police said.
