A short time later, detectives located Mcneice on Stan Haven Place and West Haven Drive, where he was found in possession of stolen items, along with a skull mask and a loaded handgun. There were no injuries to employees at the gas station.

He was arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on Sunday and is being held on bail of $50,000 cash or $100,000 bond.

Mcneice is scheduled to return to court on Oct. 16.
