Cops: New Suffolk man harassed police staffer while in custody

A 32-year-old man allegedly damaged a New Suffolk home Thursday night and later harassed a Southold Town police employee, according to Southold Town police.

Adam Garcia of New Suffolk got into an argument with a woman around 7:15 p.m. and broke three windows and a door frame, police said.

After Mr. Garcia was transported to the station and charged with criminal mischief for the incident, he was later charged with “aggravated harassment of an employee by[sic] and inmate for his behavior while lodged at police headquarters,” a press release states.

It was not immediately clear if Mr. Garcia allegedly harassed the other employee as an inmate, or whether it was an inmate he also harassed.

He was being held for an arraignment in Southold Town Justice Court.
