East Hampton Town police have reported charging Caylynn McMaster of Amagansett, 39, with criminal possession of stolen property, a class E felony, on Jan. 23. Police said a digital Chase Visa debit card that did not belong to her had been found on her iPhone.

Information about the theft of a debit card was first reported to police in late November. In January, an investigation by the detective squad yielded sworn statements from Ms. McMaster, another statement from a person whose name was redacted in the report, a larceny charge sworn out by the unidentified victim, and a Jan. 11 search, with consent, of Ms. McMaster’s iPhone, leading to the charge.
