Baubles And Boats
Two big robberies kick off this week's edition of The Petty, The Bad, and The Criminal. An East Hampton man wasn't able to sail off into the sunset after his $4000 sailboat was stolen from its mooring in Hands Creek Harbor between June 11 and 12. In other water-related thefts, two jet skis valued at ten grand apiece and a trailer valued at $1800 were stolen from East End Motor Sports sometime between June 9 and 10.
Two silver rings, valued at $12,000 and $8000, respectively, were reported stolen from a house on Squaw Road. Also stolen was $30 worth of meat. An antique china cabinet, a wood chest, a kerosene lamp, and 30 salt dishes were stolen from a Hayground Rd., Water Mill residence on Saturday. An East Hampton woman reported $1600 was stolen from her bank account. She believes someone may have gotten her account number from the Internet.
In Riverhead, police are on the hunt for the person(s) who stole a purse containing $45 from the St. John's Food Pantry. They are also looking for the thieving sorts who took tools from a car parked on Elton Street, a fish tank from Little Flower Children's Services, a Coach wallet containing $500 from a patron of Digger O'Dells, $180 worth of solar lights from a yard on Hubbard Avenue, $500 cash, and Sanyo stereo from a car parked on Griffing Ave.
Rumors have been swirling around village streets for days about a stabbing in Greenport. Southold Town Police confirmed this week that a stabbing took place on June 3, at 10 a.m., at an unknown location in Greenport.
According to Southold Town Detective Sergeant John Sinning, a Greenport man was stabbed three times in his abdomen by an unidentified man. The victim believes he may have been in the area of Atlantic Avenue at the time of the attack, but is not positive.
He was treated at Eastern Long Island Hospital and then transferred to Stony Brook for further treatment. Anyone with further information should contact the Southold Town Police Department Detective Division at 765-2600.
Flying beer bottles? It must be summer. A Flanders man was struck by a beer bottle at a party in Westhampton Beach early Sunday morning. Police say the vic was "highly intoxicated and uncooperative." Patrons and security personnel were involved in an altercation at Jet East in Southampton on Saturday. The complainant claims he was struck by the bouncers; they say they were trying to break up a fight.
A 23 year-old Shirley woman turned herself in to Southampton Police to face assault three charges. Cops say the woman punched another woman in the face June 6. A 28 year-old Flanders man was booked on child endangerment charges after he allegedly pushed his son against a wall, choked him, and made him bleed.
DWIs On Dock
South Fork cops hauled in seven soused sorts last week. In East Hampton Village two DWIs were pulled in on Sunday, a 22 year-old East Hampton man was stopped near Stratton Square and a 36 year-old NYC woman arrested near Church St. A 23 year-old Sag Harbor man was arrested by Southampton cops in the early hours of last Friday, after he hit a tree. A 27 year-old Holtsville man ran a light on C.R. 39, and found himself in cuffs. The arrest report states the light was "in proper working order."
On June 13, a 62 year-old Southampton woman crossed into incoming traffic on North Sea Road and was locked up on DWI charges. On June 11, a 47 year-old East Hampton man was arrested on Abrahams Path after he was spotted driving on the shoulder. Earlier in the same day, a 26 year-old Amagansett man was arrested on Montauk Highway near Toilsome Lane after he failed field sobriety tests.
Rounding Up The Usual Suspects:
• Bird...Plane...Superman?: Riverhead Police were asked to investigate a red object that was apparently seen falling from the sky and heading right for the Peconic Bay. After looking into the situation, police found nothing.
• The Oldest Profession: A john sting resulted in a number of arrests last week. According to Riverhead cops, several men were arrested for patronizing a prostitute on Main Street, among them a 72-year-old man and a 36-year-old man.
