East Hampton Village

Police found three political signs on village property at Woods Lane and Ocean Avenue on the morning after Election Day. They were removed and put in the basement at headquarters.

A number of valuable musical instruments were taken from John Ford's house on Pantigo Road sometime over the past year. Mr. Ford told police he only noticed them missing on Nov. 3, since the cases had remained in their places. One guitar valued at $15,000, a cello valued at $10,000, a bow worth $5,000, and another guitar worth $200 were all taken. Mr. Ford told police he would not pursue charges but wants the instruments returned.



Saturday night at Shagwong Tavern, Juan Pico-Raffucci was sitting at the bar when he and another man, unidentified, had "a minor physical altercation‚" according to a heavily redacted police report. The bartender filled the officers in, and both parties were asked to leave the bar.


Sag Harbor

A Nov. 4 report of employees not wearing masks inside the Gulf gas station on Hampton Street turned out to be unfounded. Police found the cashier to be in compliance and behind an enclosed plastic barrier.

A Hillside Drive West woman, told that there had been a complaint about her laughing and shouting at 1 a.m. Saturday, said she "did not realize she was being so loud‚" and would move inside.

A bow-hunting complaint was filed on Jermain Avenue Saturday morning, but no such activity was discovered.

On Saturday afternoon, a trailer with a burned boat hitched to it was reportedly blocking the roadway at Harbor and Soundview Avenues. Police did indeed encounter the trailer and boat, but said it was not in the way of any traffic.

Satori, the women's clothing shop at 95 Main Street, was hit twice this week by theft, possibly by the same person, police said. On Saturday afternoon, a woman carrying a gray pocketbook stole $100 worth of merchandise, including a mask, a mask chain, and a pair of sunglasses. On Sunday there was a report of an elderly woman who took a pair of pearl and gold earrings worth $58.

A police computer mistakenly registered a "stolen vehicle" Saturday night at the intersection of Long Island Avenue and Main Street. The driver of the car turned out to be its owner, who had gone to New Jersey to recover the car, which had indeed been stolen, and was bringing it back home.



Cynthia Crain of Springs-Fireplace Road noticed last Thursday afternoon that her Walmart account had been hacked and a laptop was being shipped to an address in Lancaster, N.Y., in Erie County. She contacted Walmart in time to stop the shipment and cancel the order.

Howard Chernick of Pembroke Drive received an email on the morning of Nov. 2 from a stranger, confirming the receipt of computer equipment. When Mr. Chernick replied that the sender of the email had the wrong person, the subject convinced Mr. Chernick to purchase $3,000 worth of gift cards and forward all the numbers in order to be reimbursed, "plus they would add a little extra for the mix-up," he told police.
