Nassau County Police recently arrested former Democratic County Legislator David L. Mejias, 44, of Farmingdale, over allegations he stole a Louis Vuitton pocket book from the apartment of a 35-year-old Garden City resident.

According to police, on Nov. 13, Mejias entered the female victim’s apartment on Mitchell Field Way and removed the pocket book from the counter-top. Mejias then demanded to know the location of a bangle bracelet that was kept in the bedroom, police said. He then pushed past the victim and removed the bracelet while refusing to leave. The victim then called 911 and requested the police.

Mejias was able to leave before officers arrived. An investigation led third precinct officers to his residence, at which time he was placed into police custody. Police were also able to recover the stolen item at the defendant’s house.

Mejias served as a Nassau County Legislator from 2003 to 2009, and had previously staked a bid for U.S. House of Representatives in 2006, against incumbent Rep. Peter King.

Mejias had also been arrested in 2010 for stalking his ex-girlfriend, however the case was later dismissed.

Police have charged David L. Mejias with third degree grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property in the third degree.
