Police: Holbrook Man Arrested for Breaking Into Vehicles in Stony Brook

A Holbrook man was arrested Thursday morning after police say he broke into several cars in Stony Brook. 

Paul Lewis, 20, broke into four unlocked vehicles located at Barker Drive and Barnwell Drive between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. and stole items including electronics and jewelry, police said. 

An alert resident called 911 and officers Mark Grubbs and Todd Bradshaw tracked Lewis to 58 Barker Drive in Stony Brook, where he was staying with friends, police said. 

Residents of the house turned over numerous stolen items to the officers, police said, and Lewis was arrested at 10:45 a.m.  

Lewis is charged with four counts of criminal possession of stolen property. He is scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on Friday. 

Anyone with additional information on the break-ins or who believes they may have been a victim and may be able to identify their recovered property should contact the Sixth Precinct Crime Section at 631-854-8626.
