A Southampton man was arrested by State Police on charges of possessing three stolen cars, officials said Friday.

David Trotman, 32, of the Shinnecock Indian Reservation, was arrested Friday and charged with three counts of third-degree criminal possession of stolen property, the State Police said in a news release.
