East Hampton Village

A manager at the John Varvatos men’s clothing shop on Newtown Lane told police someone had come in on Jan. 17 and harassed him, saying that “he could expect him and his brother to be waiting for him when he got out of work.” The manager took this as a threat, police said, and they warned the unnamed man not to enter the store again or he would be arrested for trespassing. “He stated he understood,” the report concluded.

Sag Harbor

A teenager allegedly took two bottles of hair product from White’s Apothecary on Monday afternoon and attempted to leave without paying. Confronted by employees, he said that while he may have “misplaced” the bottles, “he didn’t believe he stole them,” according to police. The store did not press charges but did file a trespassing affidavit. The teen was escorted home.

Police hurried to the Whaling Museum Saturday night after receiving a report of an unconscious man there, but found the man in question to be “alert and conscious and sitting on the floor.” He had, however, fallen and hit his head, and an ambulance was called to take him to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital for evaluation.

A neighbor’s floodlight was shining into a woman’s Franklin Avenue bedroom on Friday night and she called police to complain about it. Officers could not make contact with the homeowners, but said they would notify Sag Harbor code enforcement to determine whether any lighting regulations were being violated.

A report of a possible drug overdose brought police to 162 Main Street last Thursday night, where they found a woman who was conscious and able to tell them she’d smoked some marijuana, “but nothing else.” She was transported to the hospital for treatment.

A customer at GeekHampton was having trouble breathing on the afternoon of Jan. 19. Employees called police, and the man told them he was feeling “lightheaded.” He was given oxygen by E.M.S. personnel and taken to the hospital to be checked out.

Debra O’Brien called police on Jan. 18 at around 4:30 p.m. after her husband fell while walking down the stairs at their Joel’s Lane home. Officers found him alert and conscious, but with a possible broken leg, and called an ambulance to take him to the hospital.

A Wharf Street business owner reported a large group of men on the street outside, possibly fighting, in the early evening hours of Jan. 17. Police found no signs of a fight, or of the combatants, and the business owner told them the group had dispersed after hearing he’d called the cops.
