Editor's Note: The following information was supplied by the Southampton Village Police Department. A criminal charge is only an accusation and does not indicate convictions.

Grand Larceny

• Southampton Village police arrested a Riverhead man Feb. 12, saying that he stole approximately $15,000 from his mother. Richard Lee Caviness, 46, was charged with grand larceny in the third degree, a felony, and remanded to the Suffolk County Correctional Facility in Riverside in lieu of $2,500 bail after his arraignment at Southampton Village Justice Court.

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.

False Personation

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.
