Two men were arrested Friday afternoon for breaking in to the abandoned Oyster Factory on Shipyard Lane in East Marion, where Southold police said they were searching for scrap metal.
Joshua Haggerty of Mattituck and John Meyer of Center Moriches were both charged with possession of burglar’s tools, according to a police press release.
Police said the two men “were still in the process of cutting metal with their power tools” when they were caught at about 4:30 p.m. Friday. The two men entered the property via boat, police said.
