East Hampton Village

Last Thursday afternoon, for the second week in a row, police tracked down and arrested suspects in a shoplifting incident at a luxury boutique on Newtown Lane. First it happened at Balenciaga; this time it was at Prada, where the manager reported seeing “three Latino men” take two shirts and a pair of sunglasses and leave the store without paying for them. Police canvassed the area and found three men matching the manager’s description, who, according to the report, had the missing merchandise in their possession. The three face charges of petty larceny, a low-level misdemeanor, and are due in Town Justice Court on Wednesday.

The East Hampton Airport sign on the corner of Route 114 and Wainscott Northwest Road was recently vandalized again, with a large black “V” scrawled over the airport logo.
