A Wantagh teen was arrested Tuesday and charged with criminal possession of stolen property after allegedly being found with the 19 bongs that were stolen from a Wantagh Avenue business in early November.
Nassau County Seventh Squad detectives said Matthew Cano, 19, was in possession of the 19 artisan glass tobacco pipes (bongs), which were allegedly stolen by two 16-year old males on Nov. 1 from the Twisted Glass store on 1898 Wantagh Ave. after breaking through a window. The business was closed at the time of the burglary, police said.
The bongs were valued at more than $10,000, police said.
The 16-year old defendants were arrested this past weekend following a two-month investigation and charged with third-degree burglary.
Cano is scheduled for arraignment on Jan. 23 at First District Court in Hempstead.
