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 incident occurred the evening of February 16, police said. Nakia Mabry, 43, recently posted a very similar Yamaha PW80 dirt bike on the website letgo.com, which allows for the direct sale of used items from seller to buyer.
Mabry developed as a suspect after detectives viewed a surveillance video from the commercial site located on Washington Avenue.
Mabry 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 Sergeant Dan Toia, the investigation is ongoing.
