A Mattituck man was arrested for the third time since April after stealing a blow-dryer and two curling irons from a local convenience story Tuesday morning, Riverhead Town police said.
Police said 30-year-old Shawn McAvoy picked up the items from the CVS Pharmacy on Route 58 about 7:45 a.m. and ran out of the store without paying. Later Tuesday afternoon, police stopped Mr. McAvoy for a traffic violation and recognized him since he was wearing the same clothes as the suspect, according to a police report. He was charged with petit larceny.
Mr. McAvoy was arrested and taken to police headquarters to be arraigned, police said. The two curling irons and the blow dryer were not recovered by police.
Mr. McAvoy was most recently arrested in May for DWI and disorderly conduct, according to previous reports.

The mere mention of the Drinkwater twins conjures images of smiling, happy faces. They are a fun-loving pair.
For John and Matt Drinkwater, a good humor is part of the game. It keeps teammates loose. Laughter can be good preparation for taking the field, where those smiles are turned into game faces and they get serious about the job to be done. (more…)

Another first day of practice before the start of another high school boys soccer season brings with it another building job for Chris Golden. Then again, that is nothing new for the Greenport coach.
Last year the Porters had a young team, a really young team. It was essentially a junior varsity team, in terms of age. This year’s team is still young.
“The Kansas City Royals have nothing on us in terms of a small market franchise,” Golden said late Monday afternoon, squinting as he looked into a blinding sun while his players worked on a passing drill during their first practice. “So every year we are rebuilding. We’re always looking for pieces to our puzzle.”

After earning several individual honors following the 2013 high school boys soccer season, there is little doubt that Kaan Ilgin’s reputation precedes him as one of the most dangerous players around these days.
Without scoring a goal or creating one, playing a game and taking a competitive kick, the Mattituck High School senior forward has been awarded yet another honor and a challenge. He was named one of 28 players in New York to TopDrawerSoccer.com’s fall boys All-America Watch List. Only five players from Suffolk County and six from Long Island public schools made the list (TopDrawerSoccer covers youth, high school and college soccer). (more…)
