On The Beat

Mr. Wrong

A Three Mile Harbor Road man was arrested by East Hampton Town Police Department on Sunday and charged with harassment in the second after reportedly punching his girlfriend in the head and kicking her on the thigh, following a day of arguing. The girlfriend told cops he had a gun but a search of the premises came up fruitless.

A Morris Park Lane man was arrested last Saturday and charged with aggravated harassment in the second, after allegedly threatening to kill his wife.

Stolen Stuff

Riverhead Police are on the hunt for the man who robbed a woman at gunpoint last week for $800 at a local motel and someone who robbed the Valero gas station for $600. That thief was wearing a black mask and displayed a metal object to get the clerk to turn over the cash. Police are also looking for the thief(s) that took a $250 iPod from a car at Tanger Outlet Center, an $800 television from Kmart, and $140 in hats from Lids for Less.

An East Hampton woman reported missing $5750 worth of jewelry, including a diamond/white gold wedding band ($1500), and a set of sapphire and diamond earrings ($2000) from her 13th Street residence. The items are believed to have been taken sometime between February 14 and March 21. The woman believes contractors and workers who were working on the property stole the bling bling.

An Oyster Pond Lane resident reported someone using his Chase credit card without his approval at Golden Sun and Mount Fuji restaurants in Amagansett. The card owner also reported that Coach.com's fraud department contacted him after someone tried to use it to purchase items. The transactions were blocked, but there are no known suspects at this time.

Give Me The Money

A Southold resident was arrested for grand larceny in the fourth degree and criminal mischief in the fourth degree at Tin Hung Restaurant on Route 25 last Friday. Wearing a mask and gloves, the defendant entered the restaurant, grabbed the register, and attempted to walk out with it. Both the gloves and masks were secured as evidence. The would-be thief complained of chest pains and was brought to Eastern Long Island Hospital and later released into police custody.

And in Greenport, a Rockaway Beach resident was arrested at Mr. Roberts on March 20 after he attempted to steal money from the register, using a blunt instrument. The thief grabbed eight packs of cigarettes and fled the area on foot but was later located and arrested for robbery and criminal possession of stolen property.

Should Have Stayed Home

A Mattituck resident was arrested for DWI last Wednesday after he was stopped by Southold Town PD for a traffic violation in Mattituck on Route 25 and Locust Avenue and found to be intoxicated.

Sneaky Scrips

Shirley resident Jennifer Dey was arrested for allegedly passing a forged prescription to a local pharmacy, attempting to obtain narcotic drugs.

During further investigation, Southold detectives said they found Dey at a Riverhead Town pharmacy allegedly attempting to obtain narcotic drugs with another forged prescription. She was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument in the second degree, a class D felony.

DWI Arrest

Riverhead police arrested a Hispanic male on Fishel Avenue last week for driving while intoxicated.

Counterfeiter Caught

Police were called to Agway in Riverhead when someone passed a $100 counterfeit bill to the cashier. Police have sent the bill to the Secret Service for further investigation.


Don't mess around with Riverhead Police if you are a sex offender. Last week, police arrested Aubrey Hodge for allegedly failing to register as a sex offender as required by law. She is being held on $10,000 bail.

Indy's faithful beat reporter Kitty Merrill will return next week.
