East Hampton

A man wearing a toolbelt, who gave his address as 1 Enterprise Place, Hicksville, was knocking on Atlantic Street doors on the evening of July 18, offering pest control services. Officers told the enterprising fellow he could not solicit work in this manner, and he left the area.  


East Hampton Village

After being warned once about playing loud music, a Woods Lane man will be headed to Town Justice Court on Aug. 8 for failing to turn it down following another noise complaint, this time on Sunday afternoon.

Police set up an hourlong speed trap on Baiting Hollow Road Saturday night after a resident complained about persistent speeding.

On Lily Pond Lane, a security guard was blasting music around 11 p.m. Saturday. He turned it off following a neighbor’s complaint.

A Gingerbread Lane woman corralled a yellow Labrador running loose Friday morning and took it into her house while police tried, but failed, to find its owner. The Lab was turned over to a town animal control officer.

Smoke was observed coming out of a PSEG manhole cover on Buell Lane early on the evening of July 19. Firefighters determined the cause was leaf clutter piled around electrical equipment. The utility was notified and cleared the area of the clutter.

A second smoky situation unfolded on July 19 when employees of East Hampton Grill reported a structure fire at another North Main Street building. There was smoke (but no fire), caused by a malfunctioning HVAC unit.

Someone was bicycling around near Village Hall on the afternoon of July 18 asking people for money. A village official called police, but they were unable to track down the panhandler.



A disturbance at the Memory Motel was logged just after midnight on Saturday, involving a man and a woman, and a group of their friends, who told police they’d been thrown out of the bar for no good reason. Witnesses, however, told the officers they’d taken videos of the incident, which police said showed the woman fighting with a bouncer after he tried to eject her intoxicated male friend. The woman threatened to file a complaint against the bar, but left in an Uber without doing so, or giving police her name.    


Sag Harbor

On Saturday night, a woman fell down the stairs of the yacht Elegance, which was dockside at the time, and hit her head. She was taken to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital for observation. 

That same night, on Wharf Street near Windmill Beach, another woman fell and hit her head. She told police she was drunk and didn’t want to go to the hospital.

Also on Saturday night, an intoxicated man was reported to be disturbing customers at Sing City on Long Island Avenue. Officers guided him away and told him not to enter the restaurant again.

The letters “GWDP SOR TOE” were found on the night of July 19 spray-painted in gold, black, and red, in two places in the men’s public restroom at 7 Bay Street.

A distraught mother called police around 11 p.m. on July 18 to report that her 11-year-old son was choking on a Lemonhead hard candy. By the time officers and a medical team arrived to the Burke Avenue address, the mother had managed to dislodge it.



An Underwood Drive resident reported several “weird” occurrences to police last week. A man had arrived at her home on July 20, she said, to assemble patio furniture that had already been assembled a week before. Also, she said, a few shipments of clothes had been delivered to her residence, which she found suspicious, since she didn’t order them and they were addressed to another (unnamed) woman. She wanted the incidents documented.
