In addition to the baby formula, police said Terry Bodden, 28, whose address was not listed, also stole women’s sleepwear from the store. Police said she took more than $1,000 worth of goods in total. She was charged with grand larceny in the fourth degree, a felony.

West Islip

Imagine checking your bank account to learn that it’s completely empty and that someone opened up a joint account using your name, transferred your money to it, and then took it.

That’s exactly the scenario four West Islip residents faced in late August and the first week in September.

According to Suffolk Police, residents on Duck Lane, Watts Place, Seaspray Lane and Anna Court discovered that money held in a Chase Bank checking account had been transferred to a joint account, opened by a thief in their names, and then the money withdrawn.

The stolen cash came in all different amounts, according to police who believe the thefts was done by the same person.
