A Manhattan teen was arrested on Friday after allegedly breaking into a $5 million Hamptons mansion and then overdosing on drugs in its front yard.
Conor Harkins, 19, has been charged with second-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief and trespassing, according to online reports.
Harkins, the son of a Manhattan-based attorney, is a college student who lives on Fifth Avenue in an apartment overlooking Central Park, reports say.
According to a police report, Harkins broke into the multi-million dollar property by smashing through the front door. The teenager then tore through the mansion, causing $10,000 worth of damage by flipping tables, breaking windows, and destroying the walls.
A nearby construction worker alerted police. Upon their arrival, Harkins was found passed out in the front lawn covered in blood. Police say they used Narcan – a treatment used in a suspected opioid overdose – to revive the teen. He now faces two felonies and one misdemeanor.
Police said Harkins has no relation to the homeowners, who were not home at the time. The mansion was previously owned by Good Morning America host George Stephanopoulos and his wife, Ali Wentworth.
Harkins was also admitted to a hospital, where he told workers he did not know how he ended up at the house where he was arrested. However, the teen’s friends told police that hours before the break-in he attended an after-prom party at investment banker Marc Spilker’s $9 million home.
Friends told police Harkins began acting strange at 6 a.m. Friday morning before removing himself from an Uber vehicle on their way back to Manhattan.
Harkins appeared in court Saturday, June 2 for his arraignment. He was released after his family posted a $5,000 cash bail.
