East Hampton Village

A 14-year-old boy told police that his $235 Adidas Essentials hoodie had been stolen from a basketball court in the village on Friday. The boy’s mother said this had been happening a lot, though the manager of the unidentified business where the court is located said there had been no other recent reports of thefts.

A man was “creating a disturbance” on and around a Suffolk County Transportation bus last Thursday night, according to a caller, who said the man was walking on and off the bus while it was parked, and walking around the bus when it started up, distracting the driver. Police responded, but did not find the man.

Two youths were reportedly shooting paintball guns near the playground at Herrick Park early last Thursday evening. Police couldn’t find them, but did discover some round blue gel beads in the area.  

Four people entered London Jewelers on Nov. 2, two of whom said they wanted to buy a watch. They picked one out, then showed a manager a picture of a credit card on a phone and said they’d pay for the watch that way. When the manager asked for a physical copy of the credit card, the would-be buyers couldn’t produce it. The four left the store; the watch stayed behind. The manager wanted the incident documented.

An East Hampton man reported credit card fraud on Nov. 2 after someone booked a room at a Ramada hotel using his credit card information. The man contacted the hotel after finding the charge on his bank statement and canceled the card, which had been charged for two nights at $137 per night.

A Flanders resident told village police on the day after Halloween that someone had stolen a license plate from his 2000 Volkswagen.

Two East Hampton women, who police said were “in their 50s,” were yelling at each other at the train station on the afternoon of Oct. 31. One had beeped her horn at the other while she was trying to park, according to the police report. The beeper then got out of her car and began screaming at the parker. Both told police their brief confrontation was purely verbal, and they were instructed to stay away from each other.
