East Hampton
Irene Foster and her tenant, Joseph Q. Ward, filed a police report after a woman entered Mr. Ward’s room in Ms. Foster’s Hand’s Creek Road house last Thursday and left with items she said belonged to her. A trespassing affidavit was filled out, but the matter is now considered closed.

Two electrically operated arms that opened and closed a gate at a property on Settlement Court were removed, along with a sensor that runs under the driveway 20 feet south of the gate. John O’Brien, the property’s caretaker, filed a police report on Feb. 3.

East Hampton Village
A Georgica Road homeowner called police on Friday to report that a neighbor’s tree, from a house on Darby Lane, had fallen onto her property. An officer spoke to the neighbor, who said he would have the tree removed as soon as possible.

On Friday night, an intoxicated man refused to leave the East Hampton Grill on North Main Street, even after paying his bill and asking for a cab. The 58-year-old, an East Hampton resident, created a scene and tried to grab a woman behind the bar, according to the police report. Several employees stepped in and escorted him to the waiting taxi outside. On Saturday, police advised the man that he was no longer welcome at the restaurant. He said he understood.

Police received a complaint on Saturday morning after a business began selling merchandise on the sidewalk in front of 61 the Circle. The officer spoke to the shop owner, who said he would stop.

On the afternoon of March 8, an older man nearly walked out of Shagwong Tavern with a photo of Mick Jagger that had been hanging on the wall. He was stopped before he could leave. Asked what he was doing, he replied, “It’s Mick Jagger.” The employee who stopped him took the photograph back and the man left. Shagwong wanted the incident on record and said the man was no longer welcome at the bar.

A woman’s bicycle was stolen from a Duval Place driveway on March 6. Danielle Sierkierski said the purple bike had been leaning against a tree when she left around 9 a.m., and when she got back at about 9 that night it was gone. She said she hoped the person who took it will return the bike, worth $150, and did not want to press charges.

An unknown person was seen peering into a Nissan Titan pickup truck parked in a driveway on Fort Pond Boulevard on March 8 around 4:30 a.m. Mauricio Ocampo told police his motion-sensor lights and his yelling at the man scared him off. Officers searched the area but could not find anyone.
