Cops: Man violates order or protection for second time

A man with a several recent arrests was charged with violating an order of protection for the second time in a week, Riverhead Town police said.

Anthony Calloway, 37, allegedly visited a woman’s home Thursday in violation of an order of protection, police said. He was arrested Monday and charged with first-degree criminal contempt, police said.

Mr. Calloway, who was most recently listed with a Brooklyn address, was out on $1,000 bail after being arrested April 1 for allegedly calling the woman 72 times over three days, police said. He was arrested and charged with two counts of felony criminal contempt and harassment as well as marijuana possession.

Mr. Calloway was arraigned following his most recent arrest and released on his own recognizance, police said.

Mr. Calloway was one of more than a dozen local people arrested in June and charged with fourth-degree grand larceny and of misuse of food stamps, following an 18-month investigation that uncovered a scheme involving trading cash for hundreds of thousands of dollars in benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

Mr. Calloway is due back in court Friday for sentencing in that case after pleading guilty in January to misuse of food stamps, a misdemeanor, and disorderly conduct, a violation, according to online court documents.
