A Hempstead man accused on July 1 of stealing almost $2,000 worth of Gillette Fusion razors from CVS spent five days in the county jail this past week.
East Hampton Village police arrested Sanusi Alhajr Jalloh, 41, after the Pantigo Road store closed that night, and charged him with grand larceny. Police said he had stolen 56 packages of razors.
Mr. Jalloh faces an additional felony count of possession of stolen property. Bail was set in East Hampton Town Justice Court the next morning at $7,000. Unable to post it, the defendant, who reportedly has a criminal record, was taken to the Riverside jail and held until Tuesday, when he was released, as required by state law, because he had not been indicted.
A Florida man who recently moved to East Hampton also spent time in jail recently. Anthony P. Lattarulo, 37, was charged by East Hampton Town police with grand larceny and burglary after allegedly entering an apartment on Town Line Road in Wainscott, the residence of an acquaintance, Michael Rosen, and stealing several prescription pills, as well as $180 in cash, in the early morning hours of June 22.
Mr. Rosen, who woke up when Mr. Lattarulo entered his room through a sliding door, told police that he began yelling. Mr. Lattarulo, he said, “began mumbling,” telling him, “I just came to give you some breakfast.” After Mr. Lattarulo left, Mr. Rosen discovered that his money and pills were gone, according to his statement.
“All through the day, I was doing lines,” Mr. Lattarulo stated to police. He then went out drinking, he said. “While I was at Wolfie’s, I was already messed up. I don’t think I took anything from Mike’s house. It was all a stupid mistake.”
His bail was set at $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond. It was said during his arraignment that there are unanswered charges against him in Florida. The bond was posted on June 26 and Mr. Lattarulo was released, with a future date in the local court.
