East Hampton

Deborah Gollin of Whooping Hollow Road told police on Nov. 8 that two diamond-and-gold stud earrings had been stolen from her dresser drawer sometime between Oct. 25 and Oct. 31. The thief will face a charge of grand larceny if found.

On Nov. 11, a woman reported the theft of $532.05 from her food stamp card. She still has the card, but somehow the account was hacked.

William Nieto reported the theft, sometime between Sept. 3 and Sept. 7, of electrical wire, a ladder, a hammer drill, and an exhaust fan from his 2013 Chevrolet Explorer work vehicle, which was parked at 223B Springs-Fireplace Road.

Juan Diaz, the owner of Springs Hardware, told police on Nov. 17 that a customer with whom he’d had a previous run-in had returned to the store, and was again thrown out after a verbal altercation. The man, who was not identified, then went to police and told them he’d gone to the store to apologize for the prior incident, at which point, he claimed, Mr. Diaz “instantly became aggravated and told him to leave.” Mr. Diaz wanted him charged with trespass, and the man told police he would never return to the store.

East Hampton Village

Suley Manov of Hampton Bays was southbound on Main Street last Thursday in a 2017 Toyota pickup with a trailer attached when garbage began falling off the trailer. Police, citing an “unsafe load,” caught up with him on Woods Lane and ticketed him for littering.

On Nov. 16, a New Hyde Park man, 37, went to headquarters to pick up the key to a rental car. Police had kept it following an unspecified incident that apparently involved drunken driving.

A PSEG utility pole in front of 7 North Main Street was reported to be “leaning” on Nov. 16. The utility was called in to adjust the slightly crooked pole.


Karen Hoffman of Westhampton Beach attended a fund-raiser at Gurney’s Friday night, and won a white vase and three pillows. Afterward, she asked a bellhop to put the items in her car, and he set the vase on a bench near the valet booth while retrieving a cart to ferry her belongings to her car. When the bellhop returned, the vase was gone. On Saturday, a member of Gurney’s staff returned it. 

Janice Nessel, general manager of the Montauk Manor, told police on Nov. 4 that a Hampton Jitney bus had run over a light post in front of the building. She approached the bus company to pay for the damage and was told she needed a police report to put in for reimbursement.

Sag Harbor

Diane Schiavoni found a needle in the grass at John Steinbeck Park on the afternoon of Nov. 10 and took it to police headquarters for disposal.

Michael Hopson of Hempstead Street told police on Nov. 10 that someone had dumped grass clippings onto his leaf pile. He was concerned the Highway Department wouldn’t pick up the leaves, and wanted the incident on record.

Back in June, a woman named Pearl left a hat in a bar, and his wife took it home for safekeeping, Emmanuele Benard told police last week. Pearl never picked up the hat, he said, and now she’s been leaving “multiple aggressive messages” for his wife, demanding that the hat be returned or she’d call the police. Ms. Benard tried to return the hat, but was apparently not successful, her husband said, as Pearl has continued to leave aggressive messages. The couple wanted the story on record.

A woman was found passed out on the Hampton Jitney while it was parked in front of 55 Main Street on the evening of Nov. 11, prompting a call to police. She was roused by an officer and said everything was fine, she’d just had a long day. Her mother came by and picked her up.
