Meford Home Invasion Suspects Charged

Two 23-year-old men have been arrested for their alleged role on a Medford home invasion in which a victim was hit with a shotgun early Valentine’s Day morning, Suffolk County police said.

Andrew Montgomery of Meford and Felix Dilones of Patchogue were each charged with first-degree burglary.

Police said the duo and a third suspect who has yet to be apprehended entered an Eagle Avenue home through an unlocked side door, demanded to see somebody and struck a resident in the head with the butt end of a shotgun shortly after 5 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 14.

The suspects fled the scene empty handed, police said. No information was available about the third suspect.

Judge Peter Cohalan set bail for both men at $75,000 cash or $225,000 bond. They are due back in court on Feb. 20.
