Criminal Possession of Stolen Property
• Christopher Williams, 25, of Bellport, and Charles Durant, 32, of Brentwood, were arrested Feb. 5 at 10 a.m. and both charged with criminal possession of stolen property in the third degree, a felony. Police said both men possessed items valued at more than $16,000 that were taken during a burglary at a residence on North Captains Neck Lane, which was reported to police on April 28, 2011. Durant and Williams, who were both on parole, were sentenced Feb. 15 in a string of burglaries, according to the Suffolk County district attorney's office. Authorities said Williams and Durant went to homes posing as survey-takers, but really they were trying to figure out which homes were unoccupied so they could burglarize them.
• A 17-year-old boy from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., was arrested Feb. 5 at 12:13 p.m. and charged with false personation, a misdemeanor, and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation. Police said he was processed and released after posting $100 bail.
