East Hampton Town police are investigating whether break-ins at two business off Route 27 over Labor Day weekend are connected. 

Bostwick's Chowder House in East Hampton and Amagansett Seafood were burglarized sometime between late Saturday night and early Sunday morning, the East Hampton Town Police Department confirmed.

Police were first called around 6 a.m. Sunday for a reported burglary at Bostwick's. Nearly two hours later, they responded to another report of a burglary at Amagansett Seafood, according to Detective Sergeant Dan Toia. 

Bostwick's alerted customers to the situation on Sunday morning on its website and via social media, "We are sorry, but due to an unfortunate act of vandalism and robbery, we are currently closed," its post said. "We are all ok and are hopeful that the perpetrators will be caught. We thank you for your support and understanding and we hope to see you soon."

Because the incidents are both under investigation, Detective Toia was unable to release any additional details on the case, including what was stolen or what property was damaged.  

By Labor Day, Bostwick's was open again for dining, takeout, and curbside pickup. 

Neither business was immediately available for comment.
