Police arrested two teenagers early Thursday morning after they allegedly burglarized a Stony Brook gas station and made off with tobacco products.
According to the Suffolk County Police Department, the 18-year-olds were seen leaving the Munch Repair Service and Getty Gas Station on North Country Road in Stony Brook when 6th Precinct officers responded to the scene shortly before 4 a.m.
A security company had notified officers that a burglar alarm had been activated.
The officers pursued the suspects on foot and arrested them shortly afterward. The pair, Setauket resident Daniel Maillard and Stony Brook resident Austin Kennedy, were each charged with third-degree burglary.
Attorney information for Maillard and Kennedy was not immediately available. They were scheduled to be arraigned on Friday.
According to police, officers recovered what was stolen from the business, which was mostly tobacco products.
