Malcolm Ford, a guitarist with the Dough Rollers, told police that on the night of June 24, after playing a one-hour set at an engagement party at the Inn on Windmill Lane, the band left their guitars and amps on the stage, “in order to spend some time in one of the cottages on the property.” He returned to the stage a little before 1 a.m. and took his Fender guitar but left behind his Fender 1965 reissue amp, because it weighs about 85 pounds. When he went to retrieve it at noon, it was gone. A manager at the inn, Taya Thurman, said she would find out whether a surveillance camera had picked up any suspicious activity.

Jordan and Marcie Pantzer have been receiving unwelcome gawkers at their Lily Pond Lane property. Ms. Pantzer called police on June 26 at about 4:30 in the afternoon, reporting that a black sedan had pulled up in front of their gated house, which is at the end of a long driveway, and that the occupants stayed for several minutes, photographing the house. She also reported that two cars had pulled up on June 23 at about the same time and about six people had gotten out and begun climbing the gate and taking pictures. The family has requested additional police patrols in the area.

A woman who lives next door to the Maidstone Inn complained last Friday night that the inn’s guests and restaurant patrons were parking on her property. The manager of the inn told police the valet was off for the night, and spoke with the neighbor, promising that it would not happen again. The neighbor, who is 100 years old, agreed to let the cars remain for that evening only.

Police received a call a little after midnight on June 26 from the manager of the East Hampton Grill, saying that a man refused to leave, and that they were closing.

We moved to Los Angeles in 1986. It is appalling to see what illegal immigrants have done. Marked up windows with glass cutters, vandalized restrooms, stolen bikes, they even mark up the glass on the gas pumps. I visited East Hampton on June 17 and 18 and noticed that there were lots of them there. I tried to ask one about a vegetable at the Amagansett market and they could not speak a word of English. There wasn't anyone there that could communicate. I know I sound harsh, but I've lived with this for years. Soon, there will be graffiti everywhere in your beautiful towns. I saw San Francisco go through the same thing. They brought the Hispanics in by bus for cheap labor and now, everything is marked with there special touch.
