Southampton blotter: Cops put the squeeze on juice thief, arrested weeks later

A Riverhead woman who was accused of shoplifting and escaped arrest last month with the help of two dogs was finally caught last week, according to Southampton Town Police.

Shanice Woodson, 25, who was arrested on Riverleigh Avenue in Riverside last Monday, is accused of shoplifting from the Shamrock Gas Station at the traffic circle in Riverside on Oct. 28, at which time she then fled the scene and escaped police apprehension once a couple of dogs interfered with her arrest, police said.

Ms. Woodson was arrested about 11:15 a.m., police said, and was charged with petit larceny, resisting arrest, and obstructing governmental administration, all of which are misdemeanors.

• A Riverhead man was arrested Nov. 9 after an officer spotted him hiding in a wooded area and acting in a suspicious manner at the intersection of County Road 104 and Old Quogue Road in Riverside, according to police.

The officer smelled marijuana on the man and then the suspect admitted to having a small amount of marijuana in his front shirt pocket, police said. Paul Hubley, 46, of Riverhead, was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana.

He was arrested at the scene and then released on a court appearance ticket, according to police, who said he’s due in court on Nov. 27.

• Someone smashed the rear passenger side window of a Riverside woman’s car on County Road 104 last Monday morning and removed a stereo, police said.

The value of the stereo was not known, 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 The charges against them may later be reduced or withdrawn, or they may be found innocent.
