A Central Islip man arrested for stealing food and beer from a Greenport Village business Sunday afternoon now faces a much more serious charge, Southold police said.

Although Brian B. Edwards, 44, initially faced a minor charge of petit larceny, police later learned that he was wanted on an active parole warrant, according to police.

He was held pending arraignment.
