Warmer weather and improved road conditions last week had more drivers getting out and about, and the number of drunken-driving arrests went up a little as well. Altogether, four local residents were taken into custody.
East Hampton Town police charged a California woman with felony grand larceny on Monday, alleging she had stolen two jackets, including an Italian leather one valued at $1,500, from the Underwood Drive house in Springs where she had worked as a nanny for a week. Dwikeesha D. Jones, 38, of Antelope, Calif., was also charged with petty larceny and criminal possession of stolen property, both misdemeanors. She pleaded not guilty Monday afternoon in East Hampton Town Justice Court.
