PAUL SQUIRE PHOTO | Authorities say Octavious Rose, 18, ran from the Riverhead police department after his arraignment Tuesday and was tackled into these bushes by a police officer.

A Riverhead teen who had just been arraigned at Riverhead Town Justice Court on a felony larceny charge tried to escape the building by running out the front door, and made  it down the front steps before a Riverhead police officer tackled him into a bush, police said.

The 18-year-old, Octavious Rose, was then taken to the Suffolk County jail, where he was being held on a new felony charge for escaping, authorities said.

Mr. Rose was arrested Monday and charged with petit larceny and fourth-degree grand larceny for allegedly stealing from WalMart, a police source said. He was held overnight and arraigned in town Justice Court on the larceny charges Tuesday morning.

But as he was being led out of the courtroom, Mr. Rose ran out of building — which also serves as police department headquarters — through the front door, the source said. He managed to run down the first flight of stairs, but was caught in the bushes just outside the door by officer Richard Anderson.

He was brought back into court and re-arraigned on a second-degree escape charge, a class E felony. Bail was set at $5,000 cash: $2,500 for the grand larceny charge and $2,500 for trying to escape, court officials said.

Mr. Rose had been arrested before on larceny charges, including once at the same store, according to previous police reports.

On March 7, Mr. Rose — then 17 years old — was arrested at the Riverhead WalMart for petit larceny and unlawful possession of marijuana after stealing from the store, according to a police report. He had been processed and released on $100 bail for those charges, police said at the time.

That case is still pending. He is currently being held in Suffolk County jail on the felony charges.
