Charges Include Burglary, Assault, Possession

A Brooklyn man broke into a house on Valley Street in East Hampton Sunday evening, but did not get far with the items he stole, according to East Hampton Town police. 

Detective Sgt. Dan Toia said his department received a report of a possible prowler inside the house at around 5 p.m. It was not clear if the homeowner was present, but a neighbor had seen someone inside, the detective said.  

Police found someone had entered a first-floor bedroom and broken the doorframe. They canvassed the neighborhood and found Lin Sen, 22, of Brooklyn, who met the description of the suspect, under a deck at a Todd Drive residence. 

Mr. Sen had a red bag with a pearl necklace, multicolored bracelet, an Ebel wristwatch, and a Prada wallet with an envelope containing United States and Chinese currency, police said, adding that the proceeds from the burglary totaled $2,265. 

Mr. Sen was brought to headquarters in Wainscott, where he was read his Miranda rights, waived them, and provided a sworn statement about the burglary, according to the detective. Detective Toia said Mr. Sen was an employee of the Valley Street homeowner.

He was charged with burglary in the second-degree, a felony, and criminal possession of stolen property in the fourth degree, also a felony. He was held overnight and arraigned on Monday. Justice Lisa R. Rana released him on $2,000 bail.

In other arrests last week, a 57-year-old moth­­er was charged with felony assault after police said she struck her teenaged daughter with a handheld metal mirror, which they consider “a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument.” 

According to police, Luz Elena Pena was at her apartment on Boatheader’s Lane when she hit the 16-year-old across the forehead with the mirror on May 16 at around 5 p.m. Police said the girl had a raised welt, a laceration that was bleeding, and was in significant pain.

Ms. Pena was charged with assault in the second degree, a felony, and acting in a manner injurious to a child less than 17, a misdemeanor. Child Protective Services was notified.

Justice Steven Tekulsky released Ms. Pena on $2,500 cash bail.

Two East Hampton 19-year-olds were arrested on trespassing charges last week after they hung out in a room at the East Hampton House Resort and drank alcohol, according to police.

Kevin J. Llivisaca-Pulgarin and Geovanny E. Llivisaca-Remache reportedly stayed in room 118 in the motel, at 226 Pantigo Road, without permission last Thursday around 7:15 p.m. Picked up on Friday at East Hampton High School, each was charged with criminal trespass in the second degree, a misdemeanor, at about 2 p.m. They were released on appearance tickets. 

Karl T. Wittig, 36, of Amagansett was charged with seventh-degree possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor, after police found cartridges filled with concentrated cannabis after stopping his car. 

Mr. Wittig was a passenger in a 2007 Honda that was pulled over on Hand’s Creek Road, near Oak View Highway, in East Hampton at about 11 p.m. on Saturday. Police found three cartridges containing a brown oil that later tested positive for marijuana. 

Mr. Wittig was released on an appearance ticket after posting $100 bail. 

Erin P. Simmons, 28, of Southampton was also charged with misdemeanor drug possession after police found her with two cartridges that contained concentrated cannabis. She was also arrested during a traffic stop, this one on Montauk Highway in Wainscott on Saturday at about 2:15 a.m. 

Police said one cartridge was found in her pocket, while the other was in a Ziploc bag labeled “Pineapple Express” that was found in the passenger area of a 2004 Chevy in which she was a passenger. She was released on an appearance ticket after posting $100 bail.

Guido H. Perezzuniga, 41, of Montauk was caught with a forged inspection sticker during a traffic stop on Friday night, police said. A New York State certificate of inspection was affixed to the windshield of the 2000 Acura he was driving, though it was meant for a 1993 Mitsubishi with a dealer plate and expires in July. He was charged with displaying a forged certificate without inspection, a misdemeanor, released on $100 bail, and given an appearance ticket.
