High-End Cars Are at Risk

    East Hampton Town police have released two more reports on the nighttime prowlers who have lately been targeting high-end cars in Wainscott, where several late-model vehicles have been stolen, broken into, or rummaged through since the end of June.

    Susan Henchall of Broadwood Court reported three pair of Prada sunglasses, together valued at or over $600, stolen two weeks ago from her unlocked 2011 Mercedes-Benz, which was parked in her driveway. The thieves went through the glove compartment, she told police, ignoring everything but the expensive shades.

    Last Thursday, Julie Luttenger reported that the passenger-side window of a 2006 BMW parked on her Westwood Road property had been shattered while she was away from the house, causing $200 worth of damage. Nothing appears to have been stolen in that incident. 

    Also last week, though not in Wainscott, Anne Marie Donnelly reported several expensive pieces of jewelry stolen.

    While at Main Beach in East Hampton on July 18, she told police, she placed a Michael Kors iPhone case in the side pouch of a beach cart before going for a walk. The case, which was missing when she returned, contained a gold and diamond wedding band, a gold and diamond engagement ring, and a gold and emerald Claddagh ring.

    The value of the missing jewelry was estimated at $10,500.
