Four arrests have been made in connection with a string of recent crimes, according to village police.
At a village board meeting Monday, Lloyd Harbor Police Chief Charles Flynn confirmed three residential burglaries and one attempted break-in occurred since February in the village. Two handguns, a shotgun and approximately $100,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from homes on Sea Crest Drive, Sound Crest Drive and Gerry Lane, according to Flynn.
Police say nearly 80 percent of the jewelry was been recovered — some found in village sewer drains by Lloyd Harbor Highway Department personnel, who discovered several firearms with defaced serial numbers.
Flynn praised the work of the Suffolk County Police Department, the lead agency in the felony investigations.
Also at the meeting:
- The village board unanimously approved the installation of three additional AT&T/Cingular concealed antennae in seminary windows. The original plan was approved Jan. 12 by the board.
- Highway Superintendent Bob Schwartz said the village has received a $750 reimbursement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to repair a tennis court wall at the beach that was knocked down during Hurricane Irene.
