Two young men have been arrested in connection with a string of burglaries in Springs and police said more charges could be coming.
Johnathon Duran, 22, of Springs, and an 18-year-old co-defendant, whose name police withheld due to his Youthful Offender status in court, were picked up on March 12, after evidence left behind at one of the burglaries led to the suspects, East Hampton Town Police Detective Lt. Chris Anderson said on Monday.
The 18 year old has been charged with four counts of second-degree burglary for break-ins at houses on Lincoln Road, Copeces Lane, Three Mile Harbor-Hog Creek Road, and Breeze Hill Road, in recent weeks. Duran has only been charged with one count, for his part in the alleged burglary on Copeces Lane.
Anderson said all the burglaries had not been reported and that police are investigating further. "We're looking into other burglaries that have occurred in the area," he said. More charges could be added.
Electronics, like iPods, liquor, food, and as much as $500 in cash, were stolen from the houses, according to Anderson.
"Some of it has been sold," he said, adding that some items are in police custody.
The younger defendant is being held on $5,000 cash and $10,000 bond, following arraignment before East Hampton Town Justice Lisa R. Rana. Duran was released on $700 bail.
