East Hampton

The trailer that serves as a lunchroom at a construction site at 14 Tyson Lane East was where Christopher Piacentine last saw his Apple iPhone 4 on Feb. 1. He told police three men were in the trailer when he left it after having breakfast. Police questioned the three, all of whom denied knowing the whereabouts of the missing cellphone.

Both town and village police were busy in the snow all weekend dealing with numerous calls of downed wires, fallen trees, and auto accidents.

East Hampton Village

Early Monday morning after the Super Bowl, a box spring from a mattress turned up in the middle of Pantigo Road. Police pulled it to the side and called the Department of Public Works.

An East Hampton 13-year-old reported the loss of a 14-karat gold tennis bracelet with two latches. She told police it was lost “somewhere near Starbucks,” in mid-January.

Sag Harbor

Heidi Nathan reported that a former tenant had removed items from the Glover Street house she’d been renting from Ms. Nathan, with a total value in excess of $3,000. Included in the missing items were 150 closet hangers.

Like East Hampton Village, Sag Harbor was quiet over the weekend, allowing police to deal with storm-related emergencies.


Leah Persan of Montauk parked her car on Lotus Avenue on the night of Feb. 4 and returned to it a little before midnight to find it had been ransacked. The car’s contents had clearly been gone through, police said, but nothing seemed to be missing.
