On The Beat


Armed Robbery in Hampton Bays

A woman was robbed at gunpoint outside the McDonald's on Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays last Friday. According to Southampton Town Police, two men, one with a silver handgun, approached employees exiting the restaurant and demanded money and entry into the store. Upon being told it was locked, the two robbed one woman of a small amount of money and fled the scene. K-9 units responded, but were unable to find the two suspects.

A 17-year-old Southampton man was assaulted by an unknown assailant on October 1. He was treated at Southampton Hospital for a broken jaw, but would not provide police with the particulars of the incident.

Loot Lifted

A $4000 TV and a $2000 DVD player were stolen from a Jobs Lane, Bridgehampton house between October 8 and 10. A $1500 stereo, $600 worth of fishing rods, a $460 DVD player, and a $50 vacuum cleaner were cleaned out of a home on North Road in Hampton Bays in a theft that was reported on Sunday. A man who left his truck running outside a gas station on Lake Avenue in Riverside last Thursday saw an apparently intoxicated man drive off with his vehicle — and $1600 worth of tools.

A set of golf clubs, a laptop, and a cell phone were stolen from a vehicle parked outside the Maidstone Club in East Hampton last Thursday. In Amagansett, some pricey baubles — four gold rings ($2900), a strand of pearls ($500) and a gold ring ($400) — were stolen from a home on Meeting House Lane sometime between October 4 and October 7. Three electrical panels valued at $4000 were carted away from a home under construction on Springwood Way in East Hampton.

Two kayaks valued at $975 were paddled away, illegally, from Louse Point Beach in East Hampton sometime between Sunday and October 1. A Starcraft boat worth $2500 was stolen from a launching ramp on Mile Hill Road in East Hampton sometime between October 5 and 6. Other modes of transport favored by thieves this week include two mountain bikes, valued at $500 apiece, stolen, along with a weedwhacker, from a residence on Cedar St. in East Hampton.

It was identity theft and plain old theft in the case of a Hampton Bays woman who had more than $8900 withdrawn from her savings account in July; she reported the crime last Thursday. Close to $5000 in cash and checks were stolen from Best Serve Beverage in Speonk. Police say former employees are suspected. A larcenous sort picked up a wallet that had been lost in the Wild By Nature parking lot in Hampton Bays and used the credit card to make $800 in purchases — their ill-gotten gains of choice? Liquor, gas and pet supplies.

Drinkers Stopped

Southampton Police report two DWI arrests this week. In the early hours of Monday morning, cops stopped a 29-year-old Flanders man for a traffic violation on Peconic Ave. in Riverhead; on Sunday, a speeder from Southampton, 24, was stopped on Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays, where it was also determined he was a soused driver. In East Hampton, police also arrested two drunk drivers: a 44-year-old Southampton man stopped on Springs Fireplace Rd. on Saturday after a cop spotted him driving erratically, and a 21-year-old East Hampton woman, pulled in on Montauk Highway for DWI after being stopped in Montauk for a broken headlight.

On the North Fork, two more DWIs were added to the line-up. A motor vehicle accident on Peconic Lane in Peconic on Saturday resulted in the driver of one vehicle, a 59-year-old Southold woman, being hauled away for drunk driving; over in Southold, a 26-year-old Riverhead man walked away in silver bracelets after being stopped for erratic driving on Rt. 25.

Rounding Up The Usual Suspects . . .

• A Clean Freak: A woman at Second Nature Markets in East Hampton was reportedly seen opening bottles of shampoos, creams and deodorants. The reason why? We'll never know; the East Hampton Village Police, security conscious as they are, blacked out the rest of the smelly details.
