Student arrested for grand larceny

"A 19-year-old West Islip resident was arrested for allegedly entering a residence hall room in Oneida Hall and stealing an Oswego State student’s wallet and credit cards early Sunday morning.

" The suspect, Connor Uriarte, was allegedly trying to steal a student’s TV, causing the victim to wake up.

" The victim, whose name was not released, had left his door unlocked, Assistant University Police Chief John Rossi said.

""That’s the case for most of our burglaries." Rossi said.

" The victim called U.P. and gave a description of Uriarte to police. Two officers and a lieutenant responded to the call. The lieutenant found the suspect and the victim identified Uriarte as the person who allegedly tried to steal his TV.

" Uriarte was arrested at 1:56 a.m. With the victim’s wallet and credit cards. The suspect was also found to be in possession half of an Alprazolam pill, an anxiety medication; a marijuana grinder and scale; and a small amount of marijuana.

" Uriarte was charged with grand larceny in the fourth degree, a felony; criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, a misdemeanor; and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation. He was taken to Oswego Town Court and held on $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond at the Oswego County Correctional Facility. Uriarte posted bail Monday.

" U.P. is still uncertain on how Uriarte gained access to Oneida Hall.

" "We believe he was up here visiting somebody, but we do not know who," Rossi said.
