East Hampton

Police reported a possible burglary at 32 Red Fox Lane on May 7. No further details were given.

A driver traveling on Daniel’s Hole Road last Thursday at about 3 p.m. pulled over to make sure that a door on the Ford E-Series van was secure. As he did, a white sedan pulled alongside and someone in the car threw  a glass bottle, which flew through the van’s open driver’s-side window, striking the passenger-side window from inside and shattering it. The sedan then accelerated rapidly, heading north at high speed, Frank A. Sanders of Mastic told police. There are no leads in the case, as Mr. Sanders was unable to see the sedan’s license plate from where he was standing.


East Hampton Village

A noncomplying Compass real estate sign on Further Lane, for a 3,000-square-foot traditional house with four bedrooms listed at $140,000 for the season, caught the eye of a police officer last Thursday. The sign was removed, and police wrote out a summons for the agent associated with the listing.

A $1,150 cherry floral Prima cape dress was discovered missing at the Zimmerman shop on Newtown Lane on Friday afternoon. Police took a statement about the apparent theft from a manager.

In a Saturday evening 911 call, police were alerted that youths were skateboarding near the Janet Lehr Fine Arts Gallery off Park Place. An officer did not find any youths or skateboarders when he went to investigate.



A Flagg Avenue property owner told police on May 7 that a motion sensor and several exterior lightbulbs had been broken by someone throwing rocks, which remained on the patio for police to see when an officer arrived. Police took photographs and spoke to neighbors but did not indicate that they had a suspect.

Police were called to the Plaza in Montauk after a report came in about a fight between two men at 2:15 a.m. on Saturday. According to police, one man punched the other in the back of the head then attempted to pull off the alleged victim’s sweatshirt, ripping it. The men were separated. Police cited the man who allegedly threw the punch with harassment. He was released without bail after a morning arraignment before Justice Steven Tekulsky.


Sag Harbor

A Main Street resident phoned police at 5:42 a.m. on May 9 after being awakened by yelling coming from outside her windows. According to police, a Sag Harbor Village Department of Public Works crew had loudly expressed their displeasure at a driver who, apparently unaware, steered over a set of freshly repainted lines on the pavement.

Sag Harbor police said officers arrested five people last week for not having valid motor vehicle registrations. A license plate reader device mounted on a patrol car identified three of the vehicles with suspended registrations. Two of the drivers arrested were in cars for which insurance policies had lapsed, resulting in the registration suspensions.



Police and firefighters were called to the soon-to-be Il Mulino restaurant on the corner of Wainscott Stone Road and Montauk Highway on Tuesday afternoon after a report of a Dumpster fire. The blaze was quickly extinguished.
