A Shelter Island man with several previous arrests faces a misdemeanor petit larceny charge following his arrest in Cutchogue Wednesday morning for attempting to take items from a car parked on Griffing Street, Southold police reported.

Sean Cronin, 27, was taken to police headquarters and held for arraignment, police said.

Mr. Cronin was also arrested in February on grand larceny and forgery charges for allegedly cashing an elderly woman’s checks without her knowledge, according to a previous Suffolk Times story.

In January he was arrested on Shelter Island on an active bench warrant from Riverhead Town court, according to a previous article.

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.
