A Riverhead man was arrested yesterday for breaking into and stealing various food and drink items, as well as attempting to steal a small utility vehicle, from Sandy Pond Golf Links on Roanoke Avenue.

Police said Jamal Langhorne, 37, was arrested by a patrol officer who responded to a call by an owner of the golf course at around 7:48 a.m.. The golf course owner reported that a male subject had entered the establishment and removed various food and drink items, which were loaded on a “John Deer Gator type” vehicle that was previously observed being operated by the Langhorne, police said. 

Langhorn was charged with third-degree burglary (a class D felony), third-degree attempted grand larceny (a class E felony) and harassment, police said. Langhorne was held for arraignment in Riverhead Justice Court, police said.

Editor’s note: A criminal charge is an accusation. A person charged with a crime is presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
