Sag Harbor Village police arrested Nikola K. Warm of Germany last Thursday at 11:15 a.m. and charged her with endangering the welfare of a child. She was arrested after a traffic control officer alerted police that a 2008 Toyota Prius parked outside 35 Main Street had two small children in car seats locked inside with windows slightly cracked for ventilation, the police report said.
The temperature reached 82 degrees in Sag Harbor that day, according to the National Weather Service.
An officer waited by the car for approximately 15 minutes until Ms. Warm returned. She told the officer that she had been gone for five minutes to get something to eat while the children slept, police said.
After arresting Ms. Warm, police called the children’s mother, Anna A. Devso, who said she was coming from Riverhead, according to the report. Ms. Warm was released on $250 bail with a scheduled court appearance.
Also in Sag Harbor, late Sunday night police stopped a 2008 Ford pickup truck being driven by Harley J. Decker, an 18-year-old who lives in that village, after he was seen headed east on Jermain Avenue with what the report termed an obstructed view.
After pulling him over in the Pierson High School parking lot, an officer found Mr. Decker to be “very nervous and fidgety,” the report said. When the officer asked him if he had any drugs or weapons in the truck, Mr. Decker replied, “In the duffel bag — pills and weed,” according to police.
The officer checked the bag and allegedly found several plastic bags of marijuana, a jar with 15 tablets of a drug known as Moma, plus several empty plastic bags and a digital scale.
He was arrested and taken to police headquarters on Division Street, where he was charged with criminal possession in the fifth degree, a felony, as well as misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance and two misdemeanor charges of possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was released the next morning without bail because of his ties to the community. He has a future date in court.
Scent of Pot
Jean P. Hernandez, 22, was arrested after a routine traffic stop at the intersection of Hand’s Creek Road and Spread Oak Lane in East Hampton, town police said. An officer stopped him for not wearing a seat belt but reported a strong scent of marijuana coming from the Buick Mr. Hernandez was driving.
The officer subsequently found a small bag of what later proved to be cocaine, as well as a small plastic bag of marijuana, according to police. Charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, which is a misdemeanor, as well as possession of marijuana, Mr. Hernandez, who lives in East Hampton, was later released on $250 bail with a date in court.
Justin M. Sheinbaum, 29, of Stamford, Conn., was arrested at 3:15 a.m. on July 22, a few hours after his 29th birthday, outside Astro Pizza in Amagansett after workers there pointed him out to police as the man who had broken a door in the restaurant, police reported.
He was arrested, taken to police headquarters in Wainscott, and charged with criminal mischief, a misdemeanor. While in the station house, Mr. Sheinbaum revealed that he was diabetic. Police checked with Southampton Hospital and were told it would be safe to allow him to administer a dose of insulin, despite possibly being intoxicated, according to the police report.
East Hampton Town Justice Catherine A. Cahill set bail at $300 later that day. As Mr. Sheinbaum was led away, he stopped and said to the justice, “Make sure my plea is not guilty.” She assured him she had done so.
