    Robert Alkan called police in the small hours of July 27 to report that his taxi, parked in front of the Stephen Talkhouse, was gone. A Thomas Avenue resident saw the cab parked near his house later that day and notified police. Although it appeared to be undamaged, Mr. Alkan’s Garmin GPS and BlackBerry phone, together worth $225, were missing.

Alexandra Chantecaille of East Hampton was at the Talkhouse on July 28 when her white Prada leather purse containing an iPhone 5, driver’s license, Visa debit card, and house keys disappeared from a bench by the stage where she had left it. She called the phone and someone answered, she told police. Officers contacted the other person, who claimed to have found the phone by the bar and picked it up thinking it was hers. She returned it to its owner soon after. Later that day, the missing purse was found in the restaurant, reportedly with the license, Visa card, and keys still inside.
