The Sag Harbor Village treasurer told village police last Thursday that money had been stolen from a village payroll account to the tune of $10,200 via fraudulent checks.

According to the police report, the treasurer, Timothy Bullock, said that the seven checks in question were “never issued” by his office, but had been presented for cashing at Chase Bank and Bank of America between March 16 and last Thursday.

The fraudulent checks were discovered when the banks contacted the village to confirm their validity. An “affidavit of unauthorized debit” has been filed. The theft is considered an incident of grand larceny.

“They’re expecting to get the funds back,” Mr. Bullock said by phone on Tuesday.

A Rolex watch was the subject of a dispute late Saturday night between a man and a woman, both intoxicated, on Main Street in front of the Point Bar and Grill. Each of them claimed to own the watch, so an officer took it to the Montauk precinct until documentation could be provided. The watch turned out to belong to neither of them. The man’s father showed up in the morning with a copy of an insurance policy showing the Rolex was in fact his.
