Three men were arrested for allegedly committing an armed home invasion in Center Moriches on Wednesday night, Suffolk County police said.
Akim Adams, 26, who is homeless, 29-year-old Alexander Vaughn and 19-year-old George Bidi, both of Brooklyn, were each charged with first-degree burglary.
Police said the trio was armed with baseball bats and a handgun when they entered a home through an unlocked garage, confronted the homeowners and stole jewelry, cash and a cell phone at 10:20 p.m.
Third Precinct officers apprehended the three men in a Hyundai sedan on the Southern State Parkway in Bay Shore shortly before midnight, police said.
Seventh Squad detectives are continuing the investigation. All three are scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Central Islip.
