Three Sayville teenagers are under arrest and charged with burglarizing the Hot Bagels business on North Main St. in Sayville early Monday morning, according to Suffolk Police.
Police say Fifth Precinct Officer Kevin Sison was on patrol at approximately 12:35 a.m. when he discovered the bagel store had been burglarized.
Sison notified surrounding units, including Canine Unit Officer Michael Cassidy, and police began to search the area. Cassidy's dog, Thor, was able to pick up a scent and led police to proceeds from the burglary, as well as a cash register, in a wooded area just west of the bagel shop, say police.
Cassidy, along with Fifth Precinct patrol officers, then located two teenagers, Jonah Arias-Brown, 17, and Luke Butler, 19, at Mill Pond Road and Montauk Highway in Sayville at approximately 1:38 a.m., say police.
Further investigation revealed that a third teen, Hunter Marks, 16, was also allegedly involved in the burglary, according to police. Marks was located and arrested at Butler’s home, where additional proceeds were recovered, according to police.
The three Sayville teens were arrested and are charged with burglary in the third degree. They are scheduled to be arraigned in First District Court in Central Islip today.
