Cops: Suspects sought in overnight theft at Owen Brothers Landscape


Riverhead Town police are looking for two men who removed numerous items — including commercial mowers, weed wackers, hedge trimmers, backpack blowers and chainsaws — from Owen Brothers Landscape Design in Baiting Hollow early Wednesday morning. 

Police said the men entered the Sound Avenue property about 3:35 a.m., cut locks off an enclosed trailer and put the items on a open landscape trailer they removed from a truck yard and left in an SUV. Officials reportedly believe the car is a silver or gray Lincoln.
