East Hampton

Edward Hoff told police he has been having problems with homeless people staying on his property, which extends from Springs-Fireplace Road along Floyd Street all the way to Accabonac Road. He filed a trespass report on May 30.

Six medium-size bushes were taken out of a Wagon Lane front yard between Friday at 5:30 a.m. and Saturday at 1 a.m., according to Leo Hallissey, the property owner. Whoever dug up the bushes also removed a hose that was around the plants. They were worth between $300 and $400. 


East Hampton Village

A village resident lost his 2018 East Hampton Town dump sticker one day after buying it and before he had a chance to affix it to his car. He filed a report before the town clerk’s office would issue a new sticker. 

Police helped with the dismantling and destruction of an old Remington rifle on Saturday. A Main Street resident, asking for assistance, turned the gun over to village police. 

A person who was deemed suspicious was reported to be walking on Two Mile Hollow Road and looking into yards on Saturday afternoon around 2:30. Police looked for the 6-foot-tall fellow, who was said to be wearing a white T-shirt, black jeans, hat, and backpack, to no avail. 



An argument that started in an apartment on West Lake Drive led to one man throwing a chair at the windshield of another man’s Jeep in the parking lot there on the evening of June 11. Police said the windshield was broken in two places, a taillight was broken, and the rear hatch dented. Police wanted to arrest the man who did the throwing — and even had him in handcuffs — but the other man ultimately declined to press charges. 

A guest at the Soundview Motel apparently made off with an East Hampton Town beach pass that belongs to the motel, which he used during his stay over Memorial Day weekend. The manager contacted the guest, who claimed he left the pass on a counter in the lobby. The pass is worth $400, and the motel cannot replace it until next year. A police officer contacted the guest and was awaiting a return call. 

A 2015 BMW X1 was caught on video hitting a mailbox on Old West Lake Drive on May 27 at about 9:40 p.m., and then driving off. The black plastic mailbox was heavily damaged. 

Someone broke into Pete’s Potting Shed on South Euclid Avenue on the night of June 8. When police arrived at about 7:30 a.m. the next day, they found the glass front door had been broken and a glass window cracked. There was nothing missing or touched inside the store. The door and window will cost about $750 to replace. 

A 2012 Nissan Altima was reported stolen from the parking lot at the Montauk Yacht Club on June 12. Police were able to track down information that the car had been repossessed. 

Allen Rothman was using the bathroom in his room at the Royal Atlantic Motel when he heard the sliding glass door of the room open on Saturday around 4:50 a.m. He called out, and whoever it was left. He checked his room and found nothing missing, but called police, who searched the area, and found a large number of people walking down South Emerson Avenue after leaving the Sloppy Tuna. While police were searching, another guest at the Royal Atlantic called police about someone knocking on a room’s door. 


Sag Harbor

On Wednesday, Sebastian Ramirez reported that his bicycle was vandalized while chained outside Pierson High School. The chain was removed and the tires were deflated.

On Sunday, a neighbor reported what appeared to be a fire at 172 Redwood Road, but upon arrival the Fire Department found no flames whatsoever. The culprit? A red-and-white streamer reflecting light onto a window that gave the appearance of fire. 

Lisa Rattray of Amagansett inadvertently dropped the electronic key to her Honda Pilot down a storm drain in the parking lot of the Sag Harbor Gym on June 11. Chief Austin McGuire fished it out in no time.
