East Hampton

A Cedar Lawn Cemetery building had a window smashed open last week, causing $150 in damage. There were tools inside the building, but the caretaker reported nothing missing, and it was not clear whether the building had been entered. Police canvassed the neighborhood but found no witnesses.

Two packages sent to Giraldo Gonzalez of Accabonac Road via United States Postal Service were stolen from his back porch on or about Nov. 15. He was not sure what was in the packages, but told police his delivery person had said they were left on the porch for him. Theft of mail is a federal offense.

Bruce Damark of Damark’s Deli reported on Nov. 18 that a man had tried to steal “a chocolate cake with sprinkles,” but was caught, cake in hand. Mr. Damark did not wish to press charges, but wanted the incident on record.

East Hampton Village

Last Thursday, at a little after 1 a.m., police got a call reporting that two youths were skateboarding on Montauk Highway near Stephen Hand’s Path. The nighttime athletes were gone by the time police arrived.
A wet wallet was found on Egypt Beach Friday morning. Police called the owner, who picked up the wallet from headquarters.

Police responded last week to a report of steam coming from a Lily Pond Lane house and found an irrigation company was venting water from the pipes.

Sag Harbor

A Sag Harbor woman called police to say that her daughter and grandson had been beaten up at their Riverhead residence. “An angel told me,” she said when asked how she’d learned about it. Police have recorded similar calls from the woman previously.


An East Hampton woman drove over to a party on King’s Point Road with a couple of friends on the night of Nov. 21, but there was a fight going on outside when they arrived. Frightened, she drove away, but not before one of the combatants threw an empty bottle of Courvoisier at her car’s rear window, smashing it.
