Teen Found Overdosing in Front Yard of House He 'Destroyed'
Rescuers saved the life of a 19-year-old who was found barely breathing from an overdose in front of a house in East Hampton Village Friday morning. Police then arrested him on felony charges after they found he had ransacked and damaged the interior, village police said.
A pool construction company worker found Conor Harkins of Manhattan lying in the front yard of 20 Dunemere Lane, unconscious and unresponsive, at about 6:30 a.m. Friday. First responders said he was barely breathing, and they administered Narcan, a treatment used on suspected opioid overdoses.
Mr. Harkins quickly came to, according to Detective Sgt. Greg Browne. The East Hampton Village Ambulance Association took him to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, where he was treated and released into police custody.
Mr. Harkins apparently kicked down the door at 20 Dunemere Lane and "destroyed the interior," Detective Browne said. Police found tables flipped over, windows broken, and items strewn about.
Detective Brown said he had no known affiliation with the house, formerly owned by George Stephanopoulos and Alexandra Wentworth.
He was charged with second-degree burglary and second-degree criminal mischief, both felonies, and arraigned Saturday morning before East Hampton Town Justice Steven Tekulsky, who set bail at $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond. Mr. Harkins's family posted his bail.
