Alleged Egg-Thief Caught

Thu, 07/28/2022 - 09:25

Town police on Sunday arrested a Queens Village woman who they allege is responsible for the disappearance of 23 dozen eggs from the outdoor Iacono Farm stand on Long Lane.

Patricia Louissaint, 51, is charged with three misdemeanor counts of petty larceny stemming from the three incidents that led Amanda Iacono, an owner of the farm, to contact the police. According to police, those incidents took place on Saturday at around 10:30 p.m. and on April 22 and May 27, each at around 8:30 p.m.

The charge of petty larceny can be levied when the value of stolen goods is under $1,000, according to state law. Ms. Louissaint was arrested late Sunday morning at the farm, and was released on an appearance ticket. She is due in East Hampton Town Justice Court on Wednesday.

On Saturday evening, Brahian Usma-Aguirre was clocked at 48 miles per hour in a 30-m.p.h. zone on North Main Street near Hook Mill Road in East Hampton, according to East Hampton Village police, who later charged him with driving with a revoked license, stemming from a prior conviction for drunken driving. The 20-year-old, who gave an address in Springs, will face the misdemeanor charge in East Hampton Justice Court on Aug. 10.
