A woman who manages a property on Town Lane called police on Friday afternoon to report two vehicles, a Ducati motorcycle registered in New Jersey and a BMW registered in Connecticut, parked without permission in a private, shared driveway. They were gone by the time officers arrived. “She believes paparazzi are trying to photograph the homeowner,” according to the police report. The property manager requested additional patrols in the area.

East Hampton

Just before 4 a.m. on Sunday, an unruly man and woman who had been kicked out of a nightclub on Three Mile Harbor Road put up such a fuss that the police had to be called. The woman claimed she had lost her jacket and clutch purse with her car keys inside, which may have proven fortuitous as she and her companion, police said, were highly intoxicated. The man refused medical attention for cuts and bruises sustained during a tussle with a bouncer, who told police he had to try more than once to keep him from coming back inside. They couple eventually left in an Uber.

A resident of Hand’s Creek Road called last Thursday afternoon to report someone had dumped boxes and garbage across the street from her house. An officer found a street address on a piece of the trash and made contact with that person, who said she believed it had been discarded by a moving company that had been to her house a few days before. The Highway Department was called in to haul it all away — and returned two days later, when another Hand’s Creek Road resident called police to say that several old mattresses had been discarded near the same spot.

East Hampton Village

A Sherrill Road homeowner was ticketed on Oct. 18 for draining a swimming pool into the street, which is a village code violation.

Anyone who lost a pocketbook at the bus shelter on Newtown Lane last Thursday should visit police headquarters on Cedar Street, where it was locked away for safekeeping after someone turned it in.


Farrington Road was in the police logs twice this week, once for a call on Friday about a street sign being knocked down and another on Sunday about a damaged mailbox. In the first matter, an officer picked up the sign “and placed it back without incident.” The mailbox owner just wanted the situation documented.

Criminal mischief was reported at Gurney’s Star Island resort on Oct. 20. A caretaker arrived that morning to find two gates near the beach had been partially “snapped and left hanging,” he told police. Estimated damages were $200.

A missing bicycle made its way back to the Surf Lodge last week. The bike, a white Priority model with a silver basket, brown seat, and orange “Montauk” sticker near the back tire, was hotel property that had been missing for a month or so. The police report was redacted concerning who had been riding it, except to say it had been spotted at the Montauk train station. No charges were filed.

Sag Harbor

Last week, police found a missing sundress; this week they were searching for a “shacket.” A 40-year-old Madison Street man reported his blue shacket, or shirt-jacket, had gone missing. Last seen between noon last Thursday and 8:45 a.m. on Friday. The man later remembered he had left it on top of his truck before driving on Jermain Avenue.

“You’re mom is sexy,” wrote a vandal whose graffiti under the bridge to North Haven caught the attention of a village officer last Thursday afternoon. The officer also reported that a heart and “other miscellaneous symbols” accompanied the message.

Police are investigating an incident involving stolen cash at a Hampton Street residence, whose owner discovered a large sum missing from her bedroom drawer last Thursday morning. Because the amount exceeded $3,000, it was classified as third-degree grand larceny. The victim said a house cleaner had been the only other person there just before she realized her money was gone.

On Oct. 20, police received a report of a missing American flag from a Hampton Street man whose calls are frequent in nature. The flag, measuring 8 by 12 inches, was last seen the day before, hanging on his porch.

A Hillside Drive resident called for help on the afternoon of Oct. 18 after a box he was expecting was mistakenly delivered to his neighbor. He didn’t want to step onto the neighbor’s property without permission, he told police.
