A Southampton man was jailed June 19 in lieu of $5,000 bail after charged him with burglary.
Det. Sgt. Herman Lamison said 30-year-old Seth T. Hilbert entered an unlocked residence on North Main Street and stole various items, including jewelry. The total value of items was estimated at $1,800. Detectives tied Hilbert to the burglary after he sold the items to a Southampton pawn shop, Lamison said.
When detectives went to an East Quogue residence to arrest Hilbert, he jumped out of a window and led police on a brief foot chase, Lamison said.
Hilbert was charged with burglary in the second degree and criminal possession of stolen property in the fourth degree, both felonies, as well as obstructing governmental administration, a misdemeanor.
Hilbert had yet to post bail as of Wednesday morning, but was due back in Wednesday afternoon.
