Police: Teens Arrested In Amagansett Burglaries

Nov 20, 2012 3:02 PM

Three teenagers were charged with breaking into three houses on Atlantic Avenue and Bluff Road in Amagansett on Halloween night.

According to East Hampton Town Police, the trio kicked in a door and stole bottles of beer at one residence and entered another through a skylight, stealing bottles of liquor and damaging a bathtub, before finally forcing their way into another empty house through a basement door.

None of the homeowners were in their houses when the incidents took place, according to police.

The names of the youths were withheld because of their age. A 15-year-old from Bridgehampton was arrested on November 12; and a 16-year-old from Sag Harbor and a 16-year-old from Amagansett were both arrested on November 14. Each was charged with two felony counts of burglary, two felony counts of criminal mischief and one misdemeanor count each of criminal mischief and criminal trespass.

Why aren't the names released on the 16 year olds? They are being charged as adults and the law allows the release. These little hoodlums deserve to get their heads bashed in adnlet the community know what low-lifes they are.

And you ask why their names aren't being released?

I really don't think getting their heads bashed in is going to be useful as a rehabilitation method. Kids do stupid things. Hopefully their arrests will scare them enough to stop.

Names please... If you commit a stupid crime, then you deserve the embarrassment of having your name in the paper. Let's see who these "lovely" kids are.
