Incident last night at the Babylon Carriage House
[Cops: Ex-worker starts fire inside Babylon Carriage House]
He entered the restaurant through a rear door and, once inside, smashed office equipment and electronics and placed “combustible items” on top of lit stove burners, starting a fire, police said.
When firefighters and Suffolk County police officers arrived Hopkins, 20, of 614 Morrison St., Babylon, was still inside the restaurant – where he was promptly arrested and charged with third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief and second-degree attempted arson.
Isolated incident…drunken college boy gone mad…not a regular occurrence in town.
