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.

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.

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.

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.
