Sayville teens charged in bagel store theft

Three teenagers from Sayville were arrested early Monday, charged with burglarizing a bagel store on North Main Street in Sayville, police said.

Suffolk County police said the burglary at Hot Bagels was discovered by an officer on patrol, and said two of the three suspects were located following a search by a canine unit.

Luke Butler, 19, of 313 N. Main St., Jonah Arias-Brown, 17, of 160 Sayville Blvd., and Hunter Marks, 16, of 246 Railroad Ave., were each charged with third-degree burglary, police said.

Police said that Fifth Precinct Officer Kevin Sison discovered the break-in while on routine patrol at 12:35 a.m.

He notified nearby units and, police said, a canine unit -- Officer Michael Cassidy and his dog, Thor -- responded to the scene, where the dog was able to pick up a scent.

The team found proceeds from the burglary, as well as a cash register taken from the store, in a wooded area not far from the scene. Officers then located Arias-Brown and Butler at Mill Pond Road and Montauk Highway at 1:38 a.m.

Marks was later arrested at Butler's home, which is just down the block from the bagel store. Additional proceeds were located at the house, police said, though it was t immediately clear how much cash was taken in the burglary.

All three are scheduled for arraignment Monday in First District Court in Central Islip.
