Two men from New York City and one from Westchester County were charged with grand larceny after they tried to purchase a pickup truck at a dealership with fake identification, Riverhead police said.
Police said they responded to the Riverhead Ford dealership at 1419 Old Country Rd. about 3 p.m. on Oct. 2 after a report that two men had tried to buy a $60,500 2014 Ford F-150 Raptor using fraudulent identification. When police arrived, the two men tried to flee but were picked up by police in a nearby parking lot.
An investigation led to the arrest of both suspects, as well as a third suspect who was waiting in a nearby vehicle, police said.
Police said Michael M. Grayson, 51, of the Bronx was charged with second-degree attempted grand larceny, three counts of first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and first-degree identity theft. Shaun F. Shuffler, 30, of Queens was found to have an outstanding warrant from New Jersey in a third-degree forgery case, and was charged with being fugitive from justice and second-degree attempted grand larceny. Tameek White, 21, of Mount Vernon, was charged with second-degree attempted grand larceny.
Police said all three men were taken to the Riverhead Police Department to be processed.
