An East Hampton man was arrested late morning April 17, charged by town police with grand larceny for the alleged theft of a 2009 Yamaha PW80 dirt bike from a commercial garage in Springs. The robbery occurred the evening of February 16, police said.
Nakia Mabry, 43, recently posted for sale a picture of a very similar Yamaha PW80 dirt bike on a website called LetGo.com. The company allows for the direct sale of used items.
Mabry became a suspect after detectives viewed surveillance video from the commercial site, located on Washington Avenue. He was processed at police headquarters after being arrested on the felony charge, and was released, to be arraigned on a later date. According to East Hampton Town police detective Sgt. Dan Toia, the investigation is ongoing.
