There was a report of garbage left by the side of Ashwood Court on May 3. 

East Hampton

A former friend, who lives at Boatsteerers Court North, is harassing him, a Mattituck resident told police on April 24. Jeffrey Wiegel said the former friend has called 32 times “in a threatening manner, bringing up the past” and looking for money. An officer said he would tell the Boatsteerers Court man to no longer contact his former friend and that matters of money were better handled in court.

Police said that someone had left dump rubbish alongside Northwest Road near Rolling Hills Court on May 6.

East Hampton Village

At 2 a.m. last Thursday, police drove by a 17-year-old sitting on a bench on Newtown Lane. When asked if she was okay, she replied, “Yes,” and when asked if she needed a ride, police said she gave the same answer, so they took her home.

The second jetty at Georgica Beach was slippery on Friday morning, to which the man who fell and pulled a muscle in his right quad might attest. He called in to ask for help getting off the beach, “so he could get medical attention on his own,” police said.

Also that morning, a handicapped door in the men’s bathroom had been kicked off the hinge in the public restroom in Herrick Park. The approximate damage total was $500.

Officers responded to a call on Sunday afternoon in the parking lot of Two Mile Hollow Beach, where a woman’s son had gone to retrieve an item, she said, when a man in a Jeep two parking spots away was reportedly staring at him, “which made her son feel uncomfortable.”


A redacted police report sketched the scene of an employee working late on April 29 at the Marshall & Sons service station on Montauk Highway, when from his post at the cash register, he heard the sound of glass breaking, “but didn’t think much of it.” Later he found a garage door window broken, a $20 fix, and assumed it had been caused by some men most recently in the store, he said to officers. 

Sag Harbor

A Church Street property owner reported damage on the morning of May 5 to her garage door, seemingly from a vehicle’s rooftop cargo carrier that scraped against the metal track, bending it and causing safety-bumper damage upward of $2,000, in other words, a broken garage door.

An ongoing Suffolk Street feud was punctuated on Friday by the tenant in question alleging that the landlord in question had picked through his packages and returned the same only by “throwing it over the fence, continually berating him with foul language,” a report said.

Saturday afternoon, a caller said there was a man taking pictures of a woman on a tennis court in Mashashimuet Park; however, the woman was already aware of it, she told the concerned caller, explaining that the photos were “due to her being a celebrity,” stated police. According to law enforcement, the caller and unknown man, a local paparazzo, then got into a verbal altercation.
