Southampton Town Police are investigating a burglary in Water Mill where thieves made off with more than $20,000 worth of furniture and other household items.
The incident was reported to police at 11:55 p.m. on Friday. It is unclear when the Montauk Highway home was broken into, or how many people were involved in the burglary. According to the police report, a gardener notified the homeowner that something was wrong after finding a broken window at the front of the house. A set of French doors also was damaged.
In total, the burglar made off with a dining room set—including a glass table and four chairs—valued at $7,000, two velvet couches valued at $10,000, 10 black dining room chairs valued at $2,000, a barbecue grill, several pieces of china, and a copy of the Mona Lisa. Several other items in the house reportedly were moved.
Police have no leads or witnesses in this case and there is no video surveillance available. Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 702-2230.
Teens Found In Salvage Yard
Southampton Town Police arrested two local teenagers last week after they were discovered in the early morning hours on Friday trespassing at a salvage yard on Quiogue.
The two men, Konrad Wroblewski, 19, of Southampton and a 17-year-old from Hampton Bays, who is not being identified because of his age, were arrested at J&V Auto Savage yard on South Country Road after they triggered an alarm, according to police.
Shortly after midnight on Friday, Southampton Town Police responded to the scene and found both teenagers hiding on the property inside a fenced-in and locked area. Both were subsequently arrested and held overnight for arraignment, where they were charged with third-degree criminal trespassing, a misdemeanor. They are scheduled to re-appear at the Southampton Town Justice Court on a later date.
