A guest at the Ocean Resort Inn in Montauk went for a beach walk on June 6 and tossed his pants over his shoulder while walking, he told police. Some cards, his Airpods, and $250 fell out of a pocket, he later realized, and when he retraced his steps he found a group of youths going through his possessions. When confronted, the group fled in a car. Police located it, and after the mother of one boy arrived on the scene the man was reimbursed.
