3 Sayville Teens Arrested in Hot Bagels Burglary

Canine unit discovers proceeds, cash register in nearby woods.

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.

i moved to sayville and only lived there to finish out my last year of high school and its how they are stuck in their old way and subdue the students to entrapment in the schools. im very educated and a drug user and that school treated me like shit. im not surprised this happened at all sayville is a breeding ground for white trash and unsuccessful people. and to comment on the white upper class thing umm.. pretty much everyone in that area is white so yea...and bagels is not real breakfast. douche bags. i would never raise my kids in sayville or suggest anyone else to raise their kids there. they will be supressed by the schools and authority of the rich families that have romped and ruled the school and town for years. if your young get out while you can before your life is ruined and you become trapped. i got out and i'm doin great =] sadly thats where my parents decided to stay so i still have to visit

and the majority of sayville is poor. none of the rich people would know that though they are stuck in their little rich bubble. and it does suck living there. im glad they post these pics of these minor because i know them and used to hangout with two of them. luke all the time im glad they posted poictures and info or i wouldnt have known because i live in kansas now.

your snobby i can tell. i used to live there i have seen how people actually live and where they live. its ok you must have been a sheltered jock with a last name that carried you through many generations of big houses and easy rides through college
Tori Elgin May 10, 2012 at 12:12 AM

I have my doctorate. So I certainly doubt you are more educated than I. I can tell from your posts that you are a very angry person. I sympathize with people at any business that have to deal with someone like you. No matter what anyone does, you will find a way to complain. I have been patronizing this business for years and whenever I request something be done a certain way they are always accommodating and always get it right. It is the way in which you ask. If you are nasty and demanding, no one at any business will want to accommodate you. Every business has policies and rules. I can assume that not toasting a bagel is because the place is always busy and trying to make a hot bagel hotter is just a waste of their time when they have a long line of people. It actually makes very good sense. I'm sure they are glad you don't go in there anymore with such a negative attitude. I've never seen them be rude to anyone that wasn't rude to them first.

Ron P before you judge know the facts, the bagel shop has cameras, that's how they knew Hunter was involved.
Sharon P May 10, 2012 at 04:53 AM
None of you have all of the correct facts, because they have not been published, yet you all deem yourself worthy to judge these young men. Why not wait for all of the facts before you make a DECISION on how you feel about what they may, or may not have done, why they did it, or what type of parents they have. I don't suggest you wait for the facts to "judge" them, because are we really so pure that we have the right to "judge"? Let's leave that up to the legal system who hopefully will have ALL of the facts.

I really wish I could say that this surprises me, both what happened and the way everyone is reacting to it and talking to each other. Unfortunately, as an alum of both Sayville and Sayville High School, I cannot. Look at all of this. Look at what's going on. If anything, this should only make us more aware to the perils that teenagers can succumb to. I do not know these guys personally; therefore I cannot rightfully pass judgment upon them. Even if I did, it would be hard to defend an action such as this. We all were not there when it happened, so we should not assume we know what happened. We should not assume motives or talk bagel etiquette or bash each other when there is a real problem here. What these kids did only happened because they chose to do it, simple as that. This is not the first robbery, nor will it be the last. In fact, the facts surrounding who did what at what time and where and when are all simply irrelevant. What we all should be worried about is the fact that something went wrong that led three kids to become misguided and make poor choices. That is the point of this, and that is the only point of this. It is simply shameful to continue to discuss this incident in this manner.

Everyones gunna have an opinion about this story...and i'm not saying what happened is right or should be excused by any means. Hunter Marks is a awesome kid, and this is not like him at all. If any of you actually knew him hes a great person. He's my boyfriend that passed aways little brother, and none of you people know 1/3 of what hell this kid has been through in the last 17months. He has never been in trouble before, bc he's not that type of person.I will stand up and back him up 110% he is a great kid. Everyone acts like they have never made a bad decision or done anything wrong in life...everyone has weither you been caught or not. I'm not saying what happened is okay by any means, bc is shouldn't have happened. BUT HUNTER MARKS, is a great kid, he's part of my family, i love him. And back him up. - Erin Cunningham

Sounds like these young adults made a poor choice. They need to take responsibility and own up for what they did and not blame it on anyone or anything else. Pay their due, serve the time and whatever else are the consequences set forth by our judicial system. Let them pay their price to society and then let them move forth with setting a new higher standard for their lives. I truly hope they learn from this. Hopefully the friends who seem to be blaming everyone else here can help them make better decisions and help them all move forward.

I was curious about this also so I checked the facts. As per a 1979 U.S. Supreme Court ruling (Smith v. Daily Mail), the First Amendment protects the right of journalists to use the names and photos of minors in newsworthy stories as long as the information is "lawfully obtained" and "truthfully" reported.
Steven Feldini May 11, 2012 at 10:25 PM
I agree it is frustrating when people defend their friends actions when they clearly did the wrong thing. It is not unlike the incident when the woman drove drunk with her child in the car and all of her friends were outraged not by her actions but by the fact that it was reported on this website. I guess it's different if you dont know the people. You know what I am talking about and I see you are a phony ;)
amber valentine May 11, 2012 at 10:37 PM
Well as for the non whites john s was refering to, where were they during this robbery/vandalisim. These so called good kids making a mistake has happened numerous times which is why they all have records. They were also so wasted on camera falling all over themselves. If their parents cared they would know where their kids were on a school night at 1:30am. There are a large number of kids drinking and not vandalizing other peoples property in sayville.
amber valentine May 11, 2012 at 11:10 PM
Well said!!! Just to add to #6 for the ignorant people most company logos are printed on the back and front top so sorry we girls have breasts and by the way the guys have same shirts are theirs also tramp stamps
Steven Feldini May 11, 2012 at 11:22 PM
Yeah I hate when the friends vigorously defend an individual who is clearly in the wrong. It's like deja vu all over again. Suzanne, I am surprised you are not concerned about these boys possibly harming themselves due to all this exposure on the Patch Because that was certainly your contention about a month ago.
Katie Y May 12, 2012 at 12:03 AM
The girl "Kate" is not Katie Yusko. I know because I am her. Just clearing that up...
PBG May 12, 2012 at 06:08 PM
who cares???
PBG May 12, 2012 at 06:11 PM
obviously he does not know what a tramp stamp is!!!!!!! There is nothing wrong with the shirts they wear. Most businesses have their employees wear a company shirt.
Suzanne May 12, 2012 at 06:20 PM
Steve, I'm not a phony. I hope these people learn from their mistakes. I hope they get the help they need to move forward with productive lives after making a mistake. Just like the woman who drove drunk who isnt my friend. I feel the same way about both. Pay their price to society, learn from their mistakes. I can't make the patch not post pictures. I don't agree with it, but they have a right that I can't fight. Btw I see you're a bit of a stalker Steve. Creeper.
Steven Feldini May 13, 2012 at 02:11 PM
Not at all a stalker. Just a good memory just calling you out on your BS.
jay May 13, 2012 at 04:29 PM
Man i could go for a TOASTED bagel right about now. Daneille, you seem like a really sweet girl and it is totally understandable that you don't want to toast a bagel in 100 + degree heat in front of an oven. Filet mignon is a very interesting topic, but lacks any quality in this conversation. Next time a hot bagel comes out of the oven, cut it in half, toast it, and tell me your not in bagel heaven because you'd be lying! I think you guys should buy a rotating toaster like the rest of the bagel world. Get with the program! Have a great summer! no hard feelings

Bill I grew up in Sayville in the seventies. Kids will be kids. Some get in trouble and some dont. Sometimes its the parents fault and sometimes its not. Wheather people is Sayville believe it or not, drugs are as available in Sayville today as they were back in the seventies. Heroin is abundent in Sayville right now, as are all other forms of drugs. Many of these burgularies and armed robberies are nothing more than a way to get money for drugs. Dont be fooled by the upper middle class raising of the kids in Sayville. Between alcohol and drugs, Sayville has a big problem.
Bill Mullady May 15, 2012 at 12:56 PM
As far as the bagel store not toasting bagels, here is my opinion. A store is suppose to cater to their customers request. A bagel taste totally different and delicious when it is toasted. When that bagel store first opened up many years ago, the bagels were very large and delicious. I believe that eventually the original owners of the bagel store retired and their son took it over. Ever since he took it over the place has been going down hill. Their bagels are now rediciously tiny and they are not near as tasty as they use to be. For them to refuse to toast a bagel for a customer is redicious. That is one of the problems with customer service today, the "new way" of doing business today is do as little as necessary to accomodate the customer and make as much money as you can while doing as little as you have to. If society went back to the old school ways of doing things, then this country as a whole would be much better off.
PBG May 15, 2012 at 01:25 PM
you are 100% wrong the bagels are 100% the same it is the same recipe and the same weight and size, and as for toasting they do toast when customers ask - the only thing they will tell you that when a bagel is hot out of the oven it does not toast the same as when it is cold.
PBG May 15, 2012 at 01:27 PM
your comments have nothing to do with the fact that the store was burgalirized.!!!!!!
Vito May 15, 2012 at 01:45 PM
I find tremendous irony in your hearkening for the "old school ways" and dismissing burglary as "kids will be kids" play. Very well thought out.
