According to detectives, David L. Mejias, 44, of 29 Puritan Lane entered into the 35 year old female victim’s Mitchell Field Way apartment and removed a Louis Vuitton pocket book that was on a counter top without permission.

An investigation led Third Precinct Police to his residence at which time he was placed into police custody. The items taken from the victim’s apartment were recovered at the defendant’s house. There were no injuries reported.
